Brooks & Dunn – Holy War lyrics

Some say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a tv preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand
Sayin' the Jews, the gays, the junkies
The politicians, the infidels
Have conjured up the devil
Upon wide the gates of Hell

I turn on the tv
Lord, I can't believe my eyes
Oh, terror walks the streets
While a million mothers cry
Christians pray to Jesus
Lord help us if You can
Send Gabriel and His legions
To defend His promised land

They say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a tv preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand
Sayin' the Jews, the gays, the junkies
The politicians, the infidels
Have conjured up the devil
Upon wide the gates of Hell

All its prophets lead
While the blind sheep they follow
The path to damnation
With no future, no tomorrow
Justice she may be blind
Tall and proud she marches on
Judgment day is coming
God himself wrote that in stone

They say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a tv preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand

Holy war
Holy war

They said fire rained down from Heaven
On the towers of Babylon
Oh, the innocent, the sinners
They all died as one
Now victory will be mine
All feeble and good say
But in the end and in its own time
Righteousness will have its day

They say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a tv preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand
They say the Jews, the gays, the junkies
The politicians, the infidels
Have conjured up the devil
Upon wide the gates of Hell

They say a holy war is comin'
Gonna be the end of mortal man
There's a tv preacher sayin'
Armageddon is at hand
They say the Jews, the gays, the junkies
The politicians, the infidels
Have conjured up the devil
Upon wide the gates of Hell

Holy war
Holy war
Holy war

    I don't know; these are C&W stars, after all - could be that they actually agree with the sentiment expressed, and I've heard that these two are big Bush supporters. However, there's a note of skepticism in the phrase: "There's a TV preacher sayin'..." and the final lines, "Now victory will be mine, all the feeble and good say, but in the end and in it's own TIME, righteousness will have its DAY."* In my opinion, B & D have made too vague a statement. I choose to interpret it according to my own agnostic's viewpoint, but some, I'm sure, will see this song as an affirmation of their fundamentalist's belief. Scary. *Note: these lyrics are what B & D sing, not what's written, above.
