lyrics

Babylon, who won the war?
Who exactly were we fighting for?

Others' blood for you, Zion
Lest you shed one red drop of your own

Have we been atomized?
Have we been Balkanized?
Or have I gone mad?

Tell me now, am I right?
That you've an appetite
For the folly of man?

Locked in proxies, fathers, sons
Filled your sails exhaling them one by one

"Fight for country!" we intone
Now we see that country was your own

Where is the precipice?
Is there no end to this?
Or have we gone mad?

Your gears, they do not meet
And they are more like teeth
You're the folly of man

A stab in the eye of any ally
To blind them to your reach beyond the Golan Heights
Your sun in Dimona shines by NUMEC nights
Are you out of your mind?!
To lay all blame upon your victim
While saying the victim is you

Always blood for Zion
Always blood
Always, always blood
Always, always, always blood
For you...
Always blood for Zion
Yeah...for...always blood for you...Zion, for you...
For you

about

Jason Ludwig Austin, Texas

--Mike Breen, Citybeat Magazine 2011
