The Lyrics

17 dead in Iran from a Sunnite attack. (The tomb of Ayatollah Khomeini was targeted)
Its blessings doubled for deaths in Ramadan
Their savagery is really nothing new
What only matters is we have had enough...
And what remains is what we'll do...

Everybody now bring your outrage to where they hate and pray..
Look to the east to see the beast untamed
Behind their walls they have naught to say...
It's time to cleanse this stain with flame...

Burn down the Hejaz now
If they aren't gonna behave
You can't kill the infidels
and make the rest of us your slaves

Burn down the Hejaz now!
We can plead self defense
They have no tolerance
and robbed us of our innocence!

Ah ah ah
Deep in their tents the Islamists plot their ruin
They make angry plans on their sea of sand
But justice may be coming very soon....
We will burn burn burn down the Hejaz lands

Now infidels bring your kith and kin to the riverside
Look to the east; see the where the Hejaz lies!
Inside their mosques the scholars sleep..
It's time to end their reigning from their keep

Burn down the Hejaz now
In an dance of full intolerance
They've vowed to kill us first
but we won't give them that chance

Burn down the Hejaz now
History will take our side...
If they won't let us live
Perhaps we can find out why...
