The Meads Of Asphodel – Behold The Kindred Battle Carcasses Strewn Across The Bloodied Dunes Of Gilgamesh Mute In The Frenzi lyrics

Digging Graves in Palestine
A plague of darkness falls
Killing Jews in Bethlehem
A place of dreamless sleep
Damascus steel of wars foul dread
Blasting horrors from hell
Across the dunes of Gilgamesh
A screaming death awaits


Sumerian gods are desert dust
The slaughter never ends
The dead are laid in newborn graves
In a blood rich icy swell.
Children burn in Lebanon
Hurled on shrieking pyres

Across the dunes of Gilgamesh
A screaming death awaits


Behold the quenchless eastern fire
To frenzied war we are driven
To stoke the hearths of guttural moans
This craving maw we are given
Bones are cleaved and shattered
Amidst the hail and thunder
Ashes raked and scattered
Dignity cast asunder
You daze at the heavens so magnificent and vast
Dreaming of peace with shrapnel up your arse.

One god with many names
One race with many faces
Everyone's right and everyone's wrong
And they'll not know what they have lost
Until it's all fucking gone.

Children burn in Lebanon
Hurled on shrieking pyres

Sumerian gods now desert dust
Consumed by the voice of hate.

Give them Guns, Give them aids &
Give them bibles and cut price graves
Forget the afflicted, ignore the dispossessed
It's not our problem, it's their fucking mess.
Feed the world with vinegar and oil
Do they know it's Christmas?
Is Santa clause black?
Does it snow in Africa?
It's Christmas
It's a time for giving, for giving up and dying.
Bury the dead in cess pits
The smell wont be so bad
