The word is revolution, but no one's fired a shot,
Each side has it's battle plans and a million
Counterplots.
And the world is closely watching as we near the battle
Line
But if you're truly wise you'll keep your eyes on
Palestine.

The water is polluted and the air is filled with death
Someday it won't be easy to stop and catch your breath
It's all in Revelations, it part of the design
And if you're truly wise you'll keep your eyes on
Palestine.

Ba, ba, ba, ba...

I marched for peace in Washington when things were
Getting hot,
I gave blood in Chicago, went anemic on the spot.
I would have hitchhiked to Toronto, but it's all a waste
Of time
So I'm writing down this song for you
To sing and pass along to you
And if you're truly wise you'll keep your eyes on
Palestine.

Ba, ba, ba, ba... revolution.
Ba, ba, ba, ba... peace and pollution.
Ba, ba, ba, ba... tribulation.
Ba, ba, ba, ba.
