Chorus Wall of Silence

Yes it’s such fun

Killing in the name of religion

But it’s all done

Covered by the name of religion

Verse 1

We’re up, down

We’re turned around

Don’t know if we’re coming when a shot

Echoes the sound

Verse 2

There’s blood on the ground

A preacher kneels down

On the soil

Of a sickened mourning town

Chorus

Yes it’s such fun

Killing in the name of religion

But it’s all done

Covered by the name of religion

Verse 3

Face to mask, shoot to kill

Wall of silence, fire at will

Thundering echoes come rolling back

Shrinking from a conflict, from a flag, oh so black

Verse 4

Only pride and hatred remain

Everything else is illusion

Caught off balance, misunderstood

Declaration of war by a man in a black hood

Chorus

Yes it’s such fun

Killing in the name of religion

But it’s all done

Covered by the name of religion

Middle 8

Religion, oh Lord, what is it for, religion

Outro

Killing in the name of religion
