The Lyrics

I see a crescent moon a-rising
It seems the ISIS on its way
I see beheadings and a-wipings
of Shias in telly every day
Don't go 'round tonight
it's bound to take your life
there's the crescent on the rise!

I see firing squads and rapings
Suicide bombings all along
I know the New Bronze Age is shaping
banned are all music and all songs'
Don't go 'round tonight
it's bound to take your life
there's the crescent on the rise!

ISIS is force behind this mayhem
ISIS is evil in pure form
ISIS hates Jews and all the women
ISIS deserve just mock and scorn
Don't go 'round tonight
it's bound to take your life
there's the crescent on the rise!

"ISIS is evil in pure form" and "ISIS deserve just mock and scorn" are some of the truest lyrics I've ever read and of course I've always loved the original song! 5's

Another well focused strike against the major evil of our time.

I find this to be simplistic. "Crescent on the rise" seems to implicate all Muslims. That can't be true. On the other hand, why single out ISIS when it's also unsafe to "go 'round tonight" because of Abu Sayyaf, Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda, Ansar al-Islam, Armed Islamic Group (GIA), Boko Haram, Caucasus Emirate (IK), East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), Egyptian Islamic Jihad, Great Eastern Islamic Raiders' Front, Hamas, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen al-Alami, Hezbollah, Islamic Movement of Central Asia, Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Jamaat Ansar al-Sunna, Jemaah Islamiyah, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Moro Islamic Liberation Front, Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and finally Tawhid and Jihad!
