The Lament Of Ishmael

The Lament of Ishmael - By the Ice Dragon

I'm sure I'm not the first to have an Stepmother
Whose pride and jealousy seem hard to bear
My story is not like Cinderella, A fairy tale like no other
Losing your father, 1st born son, no one cares
That cunning evil bitch, that cunning evil witch
Heart broken that my father I love is torn away
Where is the justice my Lord?
What should I do to have your favour? What can I say?
Maybe I will call my God by a new word
And so I proclaim to Allah
And my people grow strong and fast
Because we will not forget the sins of the past
All in the name of Allah

Found from Duane Perera - Wonderful!

With God On Our Side - Bob Dylan

Oh my name it is nothin
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the midwest
Its taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its side.

Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The indians fell
The cavalries charged
The indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.

Oh the spanish-american
War had its day
And the civil war too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
Is made to memorize
With guns in their hands
And God on their side.

Oh the first world war, boys
It closed out its fate
The reason for fighting
I never got straight
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you dont count the dead
When gods on your side.

When the second world war
Came to an end
We forgave the germans
And we were friends
Though they murdered six million
In the ovens they fried
The germans now too
Have God on their side.

Ive learned to hate russians
All through my whole life
If another war starts
Its them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them were forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When gods on your side.

In a many dark hour
Ive been thinkin about this
That jesus christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I cant think for you
Youll have to decide
Whether judas iscariot
Had God on his side.

So now as Im leavin
Im weary as hell
The confusion Im feelin
Aint no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If gods on our side
Hell stop the next war.
