Holy War

Allegorical tales are casting spells about a heaven or a hell
Causing disputes amongst the troops whose lives are for sell

Like retail from the mall they're all being consumed
An appetite for destruction is leading to their tombs

Kaboom is the sound of the bombs bursting in the air
Innocence being lost as they fall but the leaders don't care

It's clear that accumulation of wealth trumps human lives
Revelations broadcasting on every station like Fox Five

Many close their eyes to the misery and suffering of others
If we're all divinely created it shouldn't be debated that we're sisters and brothers
