You want to watch it burn?

You long to rip the clouds from their beds

Empty out rivers in volcano and raze the trees

You want to bring it all down?

Tear down their false gods and ideals

Crucify the infidel and birth forth chaos

You want to bathe in their blood?

Drown in their screams and torment

Rain down a storm of bombs and bullets


Pick up your guns,

Gather up arms and take position

Say a prayer to god and let your aim be true

When that is done, let rip an army of bullets

Set the charges,

Place each at the ends of the earth

Whisper beneath your breath a curse on them

Then pull the trigger, Inferno will feed tonight

Raid their temples,

Pillage the traditions they cherish

Take off their heads and hold them high

Run through their villages singing songs of war

Watch before your very eyes,

Your bullets burst into a million butterflies

As beauty rises from ashes, love from hate

And the caterpillar sheds its myopic cocoon

As the bombs go off in words,

In dialogues of peace punctuated with tolerance

To tell a story of the beauty in every religion

That life is a priceless and precious gift to all

As you take off their heads,

Peer into it and study their beautiful mind

See the rainbow in their thoughts and bask in it

Find the treasure in their stories and songs.
