Holy War Submit Correct Lyrics

I spent twenty years
Learnin' to live
In a world that takes back
All that it gives
But I do not want a war

I don't know what's goin' on
In the scenes behind
I worry about it
Some of the time
And I hope there's not a war

'Cause I'm not in for
Killin' another man
Defendin' my holy land
As if there's a God
Who would understand

And I would walk
Across highways
To find my fate
If that might settle
Your crude debate
But I do not want a war

'Cause I'm not in for
Killin' another man
Defendin' my holy land
As if there's a God
Who would understand

Feedin' the promised land
With your blood by my own hand
At Allah's own command
At Allah's own command

I came up from the desert
And here I will die
Tooth for a tooth
And an eye for an eye
Though I didn't want a war

I went in for
Killin' another man
Defendin' my holy land
As if there's a God
Who would understand
As if there's a God
Who would understand

I went in for
Killin' another man
Defendin' my holy land
As if there's a God
Who would understand
As if there's a God
Who would understand

Oh yea
Oh yea
Oh yea
