First there were the locusts, then there were the frogs
Then there was the drought and then there were the floods
Then there was disease and then the bubonic plague

And then I stood upon the rock but I only had to strike it once
Because I had the Faith that the Red Sea would part
And we fled to the Sinai Desert and we found Freedom at such cost

Then we crossed the river Jordan into the Promised Land
And the Palestinians welcomed us with open arms
A land of milk and honey but what did we find?
The Palestionians and us were allies against common enemies

Then the Pope in the Vatican declared war on the Holy Land
He wanted to rid Europe of the criminals with aristocratic titles
Who raped and pillaged and stole throughout the land
So he sent the knights and dukes and lords to the Holy Land

They call it Holy Land
They raped and pillaged and stole throughout the land
And scattered the nation of Israel throughout the world
Just like the prophecies now in modern times
There's nothing but war and cruelty and injustice everywhere

They call it Holy Land
First it was disputes about water rights and grazing land
Then it was about trade with Asia
And now it's, also, about the oil


They call it the Holy Land
Well, they call it Holy Land, they call it the Holy Land
They call it Holy Land, they call it the Holy Land
