The Lyrics

It's like a river, not a lark
They're trainin' in the dark, they're mean time
Both the liver and heart stop as they blow everything
Aqman's not blowin' bubbles in Palestine
You shake all night, as you fear that sick'ning sting

Who can abide when they blow off each other's faces?
Running all about insane, just another blast in town
Too much demolition, yo way too many cases
And way too many mourn with that sad sound
Way in mideast, way in mideast, West-Bank town

It's worse than agent orange they're way out their gords
Mind they're sickly Muslims, they just want to make us all die and sting
But in old Qatar they don't fall upon the sword
They don't get all into our fights, it's just their thing

And scary is the mind that can do this thing obscene
They got a bomb to lob, blowin' it tonight
They blew up a honky tonk, Just a coward's thing
Stirrin' it up for cry day fright
They're just startin', they're just startin' to sting

A crowd of young boys playin' games of suicide bomber
Drunk on allah like messed up raggies who have sold their souls
They don't understand about any puppet pushin' man
They got their call to super bowl
As their sultans. Yes their sultans slay people (people)

Then from Oman a call comes in on the cryptophone
Just as the timer on the time bomb pings
Such fright! Make more bombs in your home
And let me tell you just one more thing
We are just startin', We are just startin' to sting

Guy, the pacing is perfect, but the subject turned people off. I know I come here to escape from or make fun of the real world.
