in the name of the father lyrics – inner terrestrials

some took a bible to the desert
they burned with fires of faith in the scorched land
and when the fighting stopped and the smoke cleared
there was a blood soaked bible in the sand

in the name of the father
in the name of the father by the divine grace of god
in the name of the father by everything that’s good
in the name of the father by the divine grace of good
god – your god

there was a koran in the mountains
it promised absolution from all our sins
it watched the fighting till the ammunition was spent
its pages torn and flapping in the wind

in the name of the father…

well what went wrong we ask ourselves as we remember
all of their words can’t have been lies
while we were blinded by their endless threats and
promises
none saw the jakal in their eyes

in the name of the father…

now it’s our problem, we’re the ones who gave them
power
we’ve made them the master of the field
the spirits and the elements of nature and our pagan
gods
were called the devil and we were forced to yield

to the name of the father…

a ship of fools sails on the ocean
and we’ve made it lord and master of the seas
but it’s getting heavy and one day it must sink
and then all the world’s people might be free

in spite of the father…
