Versuri Megadeth - Holy Wars... / The Punishment Due

Album: Megadeth - Greatest Hits: Back To The Start (Compilation)

[Both "Holy Wars..." and "...The Punishment Due" appear on the album "Rust in Peace"]

Brother will kill brother, spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion, something I don't understand
Fools like me who cross the sea, and come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep for their beliefs, "Do you kill on God's command?"

A country that's divided surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish nave stand
The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel, it might be in your homeland
Holy wars

Up in my podium as the know-it-all scholar
Down in my seat of judgment, gavels bang, uphold the law
Up in my soapbox, a leader out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as a holier-than-thou-could-be messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, rappel down the rocks behind the lines
Some people risk to emply me, some people aim to destroy me
Either way, they die
They die

They killed my wife and my baby, with hopes to enslave me
First mistake, last mistake
Paid by the alliance to slay all the giants
Next mistake, no more mistakes!

Fill the cracks in with judicial granite
Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't thinkin' it
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
I now what I said, now I must scream of the overdose
And their lack of mercy killings
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
