Get Rid Of The Advertisements

License to kill
 
Ha, just give me a cause,
an ideology or a nationÖ
And Iíll kill for it!

Iíll be a patriot
Iíll be a martyr
Iíll wage a holy war
Iíll begin a jihad
Iíll embark on a crusade.

Yeah, praise and glory will be all mine,
I can already see
the pearly gates of heaven,
The heaven shall be mine!
Let my victim be someoneís son
or someoneís brother or father Ė
or mother, daughter or wife,
It should concern me not.

If the cause is noble
It wonít be a crime, they say,
It wonít be a sin!

ďThou shalt not killĒ
I see, was not meant for the killings
in the name of God or faith
nor defending oneís honor
or a promised land!

Or, was it?

Say, who do we go and ask?
Moses had it easyÖ
God, it seems, does not reside
on Mount Sinai anymore.
