The Lyrics

Egypt's Copts are being blamed for the recent government crackdowns against Morsi supporters in Egypt, so Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood's supporters have been attacking the Copts; three of their churches were burned down recently.
The kingdom of the pharaohs drenched in blood
Muslim Brothers' rage: a mighty flood
For things are getting bloody all around
Crying in the parish of the Coptic church in town

Everybody now bring your families out of the danger zone
If Morsi's gang has their way, we'll soon be gone
Behind a crescent flag the Brothers march
It's time we leave this desert land, so parched

Burning down churches
What they're doin' is obscene
Watch the black smoke rise to heaven
Oh the flame's a hellish scene

Burning down churches
What they're doin' is obscene
If us Copts want to stay living
We'd better leave this grisly scene

Way down the Nile the killings are on today
Remember: "Never Again" they used to say
"Again in Egypt"--Can we prevent somehow?
Or will burn burn burn burn be their fate, all?
