  • gelmiş geçmiş en keskin savaş karşıtı şarkılardan birini yazmış tom waits ve kathleen brennan, orphans'ın brawlers isimli ilk bölümünde.
    işte sözler:

    young abdel mahdi (shahmay) was only 18 years old,
    he was the youngest of nine children, never spent a night away from home.
    and his mother held his photograph, opening the new york times
    to see the killing has intensified along the road to peace

    there was a tall, thin boy with a whispy moustache disguised as an orthodox jew
    on a crowded bus in jerusalem, some had survived world war two
    and the thunderous explosion blew out windows 200 yards away
    with more retribution and seventeen dead along the road to peace

    now at king george ave and jaffa road passengers boarded bus 14a
    in the aisle next to the driver abdel mahdi (shahmay)
    and the last thing that he said on earth is "god is great and god is good"
    and he blew them all to kingdom come upon the road to peace

    now in response to this another kiss of death was visited upon
    yasser taha, israel says is an hamas senior militant
    and israel sent four choppers in, flames engulfed, tears wide open
    and it killed his wife and his three year old child leaving only blackened skeletons

    it's found his toddlers bottle and a pair of small shoes and they waved them in front of the cameras
    but israel says they did not know that his wife and child were in the car
    there are roadblocks everywhere and only suffering on tv
    neither side will ever give up their smallest right along the road to peace

    israel launched it's latest campaign against hamas on tuesday
    two days later hamas shot back and killed five israeli soldiers
    so thousands dead and wounded on both sides most of them middle eastern civilians
    they fill the children full of hate to fight an old man's war and die upon the road to peace

    "and this is our land we will fight with all our force" say the palastinians and the jews
    each side will cut off the hand of anyone who tries to stop the resistance
    if the right eye offends thee then you must pluck it out
    and mahmoud abbas said sharon had been lost out along the road to peace

    once kissinger said "we have no friends, america only has interests"
    now our president wants to be seen as a hero and he's hungry for re-election
    but bush is reluctant to risk his future in the fear of his political failures
    so he plays chess at his desk and poses for the press 10,000 miles from the road to peace

    in the video that they found at the home of abdel mahdi (shahmay)
    he held a kalashnikov rifle and he spoke with a voice like a boy
    he was an excellent student, he studied so hard, it was as if he had a future
    he told his mother that he had a test that day out along the road to peace

    the fundamentalist killing on both sides is standing in the path of peace
    but tell me why are we arming the israeli army with guns and tanks and bullets?
    and if god is great and god is good why can't he change the hearts of men?
    well maybe god himself is lost and needs help
    maybe god himself he needs all of our help
    maybe god himself is lost and needs help
    he's out upon the road to peace

    well maybe god himself is lost and needs help
    maybe god himself he needs all of our help
    and he's lost upon the road to peace
    and he's lost upon the road to peace
    out upon the road to peace.
