As old as this tune is now it doesn't surprise me one fucking bit that it's still relevant right this minute.
Holy Wars,The Punishment Due off the album Rust In Peace,released in September of 1990.
For those who may have never heard of it because you ain't into Heavy Metal, I am going to put the lyrics below the video so you can see exactly what I mean.
For those who have, crank this fucker to the point of distortion as it was meant to be.
Holy Wars lyrics
Brother will kill brother spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion something I don't understand
And fools like me, who cross the sea and come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs do you kill on God's command?
A country that's divided surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace foolish naive stand
The end is near, it's crystal clear part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel it might be your homelands
Upon my podium, as the know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgment Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier than-thou-could-be-messenger of God
Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me some people live to destroy me
Either way they die, they die
They killed my wife and my baby, with hopes to enslave me
First mistake last mistake paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
Next mistake no more mistakes
Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't thinkin' it
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
I know what I said, now I must scream of the overdose
And the lack of mercy killings, mercy killings, mercy killings
Killings killings killings
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away, yeah
