The Nomad Series, Volume 3: Sing in My Meadow
meadow
King Richard came upon them 
3000 I am told 
Slit their stomachs in search of jewels 
In search of Islams gold. 

On the road from Acre 
They’re crucifying thieves 
Crows are pecking at their eyes 
While the hypocrites run free 

I’ve been told that you’ve been bold 
Believing in the shit that you’ve been sold 
And I hear that you fear the way 
a simple damn dream can disappear 

They marched on through the seasons 
The skies lit by burning hills 
They gobbled up the cities 
To the sound of raging bells 

When they reached the Holy Land 
They gave their thanks to God 
They hammered on the Temple stones 
And crushed the filthy mob. 

I’ve been told that you’ve been bold 
Believing in the shit that you’ve been sold 
And I hear that you fear the way
a simple damn dream can disappear 

The rich they still get richer 
The poor still spill their blood 
The poppies grow in Kandahar 
And the oil still flows in Saud.
