In the Name of God

Terrorism

Eight Note

Verse One

What drives a man to hate another man?
In the name of God, I do not understand.
What drives a man to raise his voice in anger?
In the name of God, because he can.

Chorus

For as long as I can remember we have plundered foreign lands.
For as long as I can remember we have killed our fellow man.
For as long as I can remember we have waged a war in the name of God.

Verse Two

What drives a man to conquer foreign lands?
In the name of God, I do not understand.
What drives a man to kill another man?
In the name of God, because he can.

Chorus

For as long as I can remember we have plundered foreign lands.
For as long as I can remember we have killed our fellow man.
For as long as I can remember we have waged a war in the name of God.

About the Song

Another massacre in the name of God? This time in Sri Lanka, a country that is very close to my heart. Anyone who thinks their God condones the killing of others is mad.

Alternate Version

With a slightly different guitar solo
