Jerusalem Today

Eamon Friel Cop. Con.

The city slumbers on wakens in the dawn Cold as the cold blooded smile it fakes This inhuman thing relishing its sting Seething like a box of snakes

The city in the light of day contrives
To number all the lives that it has broken We know you Babylon
It’s time that you were gone
We have to build Jerusalem today

Tomorrow in Jerusalem they say
But here we’ll build Jerusalem today The ramparts of Metropolis decay We’ll start to build Jerusalem today

Ravager of dreams you’re not what it seems Mesmeriser but we’re not deceived
For you’re all sleight of hand syntethised and canned There’s nothing here to be believed
