The Lyrics

I like a good number of Al Stewart compositions but I found this one to be especially haunting in sound...and perfect as a parody vehicle.....
On The Border

(Sung to "On The Border" by Al Stewart)

I gazed upon a group of oddly clothed black cattle...
But they weren't cows but burkha wearing women; chattel
A real need for suffrage here...
For Muslim women its whips and chains
While livestock would've been fed some grain on the border...

On the map the omnicider toll is rising
See the mad ones who still think of compromising
The Qur'an marks their savage line
Dar-Es-Salaam will never be...
Because this savage perfidy here on the border....

Since the year 632
Nothing's really changed
Except his followers are more deranged every day
And no one cares as rationality slips away

Two bomb blasts along a trail of Marathon prowess...
Terrorist acts are now beyond the point of excess...
another omnicider act...
The only way that we might beat them
is to employ their stratagem here on the border...

In the world where I grew up
The Cold War called the game
Even if MAD was insane, it was safer...
But freedom must be the only way despite the danger....

The calls for jihad are mixed in with the promise of peace
While prophet centered hypocrisy gives us no surcease...
The peaceful ones speak not at all...
They must now try or wonder why...
there's a bright flash in the sky...on the border

On the border
On the border
On the border
