The Girl With The Bomb In Her Belt

London Bombs 2

I’m walking into the mall
In London Town
The walls will tumble down
In a flash and boom
Of smoke and fire and doom

After Paris the bombs
Rained down on my life
My town, my family, my dreams
Every moment since
I hear my parents’ screams
I see my baby brother’s limbs
Scattered around
The rubble and bricks
That used to be our school

Fire like ice
Burns now in my soul
No longer do I fool
Myself I can live
A dream of education
And prosperity
With my family
And my love…

My love is a corpse
With dust on his face
And no arms or legs

God has chosen me
To kill the infidel
That is the only
Way I can understand
The taking away
Of all I ever had

Fire like ice
Burns now in my soul
No longer do I fool
Myself I can live
In peace with infidels
Crusaders who come
Only to kill or enslave
To rape or humiliate
To steal my dreams away

I’m walking into the mall
In London Town
The walls will tumble down
In a flash and boom
Of smoke and fire and doom
