Jackie Morris: Music

Devil in the Heartland

(Jackie Morris)

 

Devil in the heartland

Doin’ what he does

Stirring up the terror

Poisoning the blood

Ranting on the TV

Raving at the crowd

Filling hearts with hatred

Turning minds to mud.

 

Devil in the heartland

Devil 'cross the sea

Saying to their people

They're not like you and me

Preaching Armageddon

Promising Jihad

Devils always say this

In the name of God.

 

CHORUS:

In the name of God, Oh God, reason’s on the run

In the name of God, Oh God, they say they’ll spare no one

In the name of God, the devil aims for heaven

Through the barrel of an AK47.

 

Devil in the cornfield

Devil in the sand

Each one tells the other

I’ll devastate your land              

Carpet bomb your country

Watch your cities fall

Devils say they answer

To a higher call.

 

CHORUS: 

In the name of God, Oh God, reason’s on the run

In the name of God, Oh God, they say they’ll spare no one

In the name of God, the devil aims for heaven

Through the barrel of an AK47

 

Devil says he’s pious

Devil says he’s wise

Promises solutions

With a pack of lies

Centuries have shown us

We should know it well

Following a devil...

Can only lead to hell

 

CHORUS:

In the name of God, Oh God, have they all lost their minds?

 In the name of God, Oh God, how can they be so blind?

 In the name of God, in the name of God,

 In the name of God, why can’t we just be kind?

  

 In the name of God...and humankind.
