Lyrics

You realize if you're happy
Jesus send you straight to hell?
Israel

And should you dare enjoy your body
here tolls Hades welcome bell
Israel

You found a middle-course existence
we're all bones and flesh and shell
Israel

I can't answer
for what armies do
they are not you
they are not you
they are not you

In other climes
they bitch and whine
just because you're not like them
Israel

The sky is dark for many others
they want it dark for you as well
Israel
Israel

Earth is just one big asylum
an explosive prison cell
see us squirm
in our own
damaged spell

You were born as guilty sinners
before you stood upright you fell
put the fear of many gods
in Israel

Nature gave you every impulse
who are virgin priests to tell
you, how to love
how to live, Israel?

And they who reign abuse upon you
they are jealous of you as well
love yourself
as you should
Israel.
