[Verse 1]
Em                                  D
Brother will kill brother, Spilling blood across the land
A                               C
Killing for religion, Something I don't understand
Em                                    D
Fools like me, who cross the sea, And come to foreign lands
A                                        C
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs, Do you kill on God's command?
  Em                      D
A country that's divided, Surely will not stand
   A                              C
My past erased, no more disgrace, No foolish naive stand
    Em                                    D
The end is near, it's crystal clear, Part of the master plan
A                            C
Don't look now to Israel, It might be your homelands
Holy wars
[Verse 2]
Em                                          D
Upon my podium, as the Know it all scholar
Em                                                         D
Down in my seat of judgement, Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Em                                                        D
Up on my soapbox, a leader, Out to change the world, Down in my
Em                                              D      Em
Pulpit as the holier, Than-thou, could-be-messenger of God
[Verse 3]
Em              D
Wage the war on organized crime
A                             C                 D
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks, Behind the lines
Em                                D
    Some people risk to employ me,  Some people live to destroy me
A                    C     D
 Either way they die.  They  die
G  Bb  G  Bb  G  Bb  G F#m F Em
[Verse 4]
     Em                         D
They killed my wife and my baby,  With hopes to enslave me
A                 C    D
  First mistake... last mistake
Em                   D
Paid by the alliance,  to slay all the giants
A               C        D
  Next mistake... no more mistakes!
G  Bb  G  Bb  G  Bb  G F#m F Em
[Verse 5]
Em                       D
Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
  A                           C
Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't Thinkin' it
Em                                             D
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
  A                            C
I know what I said, now I must   scream
       Em    D
of the ov-er-dose
        A             C
And the lack of mercy killers
      Em              D
Mercy killings, mercy killers
Killers killers killers
C                           D                  Em
Next thing you know they'll take my thoughts away.
