Some other versions of "Israel"

You realize if you're happy
Jesus sent you straight to hell


And should you dare, enjoy your body
Her toes hades welcome back

You found a middle course existence
We're all bones and flesh and shell

I can't answer for what armies do
They are not you
They are not you
They are not you

In other crimes, they ***** and whine
Just because you're not like them

The sky is dark
For many others
They want it dark
For you as well

Earth is just one big asylum
An explosive prison cell
See I squirm in our old damaged spell
You are born
As guilty sinners
Before you stood up right, you fell
Put the fear of many gods
In Israel

Nature gave you
Every impulse
Who are virgin priests to tell
Knew how to love
How to live
And they who rain abuse
Upon you
They are jealous of you as well
Love yourself
As you should
