Lyrics
SEVENTY VIRGINS ©2003 polar levine--sine language music/BMI A blue sky Is dripping red A sea of oil Anoints the dead Tell me again, what's that you said? Who is that you're paying? I hear somebody praying The innocents will foot the bill The guilty aren't speaking The God of greed is the son of the man This was not some cosmic plan CHORUS: Seventy virgins in the sky .....................Seventy virgins in the sky .....................Seventy virgins in the sky .....................A tank full of gas ... and a plane to fly Tithing in The church of fear The meuzzins grin The rabbis cheer Say again, where it's in the book About that girl you're flogging And that land you're hogging The innocents will foot the bill The guilty aren't speaking The God of hate is the son of the man This was not some cosmic plan CHORUS: Seventy virgins in the sky .....................Seventy virgins in the sky .....................Seventy virgins in the sky .....................A tank full of gas ... and a plane to fly Sweet revenge For the chosen son Wave the flag Salute the gun Tell me again, what's that you said? What is it you're hiding? The news you're not providing The innocents will foot the bill The guilty aren't speaking The God of war is the son of the man This is not some cosmic plan CHORUS: An S.U.V. and a rockin' band .....................An S.U.V. and a rockin' band .....................An S.U.V. and a rockin' band .....................a tank full of gas ... and Disneyland ©2003 polar levine--sine language/BMI
