I see rockets in the desert sky I see flesh and blood and I don't know why I've seen fathers and I've seen them die I've seen mothers and their daughters cry Surprised soldiers with holes in their heads Smiling presidents sweating in their beds Dreaming of the land where the black gold flows Where the sun always shines and the desert wind blows It's always one step forward and two steps back They stumble and fall and break their necks In the land of the killing fountains Once it was God's land in the middle-ages Now blue helmets try to stop the rage While rocket launchers burn the sand That's what you call the promised land It's always one step forward and two steps back They stumble and fall and break their necks In the land of the killing fountains You can kill bodies but you can't kill religion This is the truth and peace is the fiction In the land of the killing fountains And millions die with a silent smile Seven days a week and the years pass by In the land of the killing fountains Where the black gold flows, where the desert wind blows
