Towers of Faith (Waters) Lyrics

Artist: Roger Waters
Album: When the Wind Blows

Ooooh, the lonely boys
In their towers of faith
Ooooh, the lonely boys
Locked in their towers of faith

The prophet reclined
On the Golan Heights

Ohhh, the lonely boys

He said, this land is my land
To the Shiites

Ooooh, the lonely boys

And Jehova looked up from the sea of Galilee beneath
He said, I see you, you thief
This land is my land
And this sand is my sand
And this band is my band
Oh the lonely boys
Lookin' over their shoulder
Checkin out every boulder in the park
Where the gates are closed from hate
After dark

And the Pope rolled up in his armored van
He fell on his knees and kissed the land
He said something that I did not understand
It was in polish
Then up stepped an aide
He said, I will translate
Here is what His Holiness said:
'I am the Chief Jesuit.'
'This land is Jesus' land.'
'And that is all'
'All that there is to it.'
Hail Mary
Mother of God

And in New York City
The business man in his mohair suit
In the world trade center
Puffs on his cheroot
And he said,
Well I don't care who owns the desert sands
My brief
Is with the hydrocarbons underneath
And the sea of battle rages
Around the ancient tombs
And mother nature licks her wounds
And the lonely boys locked in their towers of faith
Who are nervous in the park
When the gates are closed after dark
Ooooh, the lonely boys
In their towers of faith
Ooooh, the lonely boys
Locked in their towers of faith

Israel is the land of the Jewish people... All others are invaders. The Jewish people have lived in the land for over 3300 years, while Islam was only invented 1300 years ago. What does RW mean 'To the Shiites'? Shiites are a cult of Islam, and they have no claim to the Jewish holy land... Also the Christians were invaders during the times of the Crusades... RW needs to study a little history before writing things like this, isn't it embarassing?

This song is about several factions claiming ownership of a useless fucking desert - for one reason or another. The album is about war, and muman613's contribution to it. You are all guilty and all your religions are cults.
