The Lyrics

I understand resistance on invader, but blind terror is something which simply goes beyond my comprehension. Why would anyone kill your own unless your aim is to become sultan instead of sultan and simply raise terror amongst the people and intimidate them into submission?
His fellows put explosives on a stolen Nissan van
he was brainwashed and fast-talked as for being a martyr man
he was told to drive the van to town and given the attack plan
and he ain't gonna drive back home

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
with the gearbox in your belly and the camshaft in your eye
His innards were all over and the rest was blown in sky
and he ain't gonna drive back home.

He turned the key and shifted the gear and gas pedal he pressed
"Take as many people with you" is what fellows of his stressed
He drove to town and felt that Allah surely had him blessed
and he ain't gonna drive back home

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
with the gearbox in your belly and the camshaft in your eye
His innards were all over and the rest was blown in sky
and he ain't gonna drive back home.

He drove and stopped at town square and the button red he clicked
a half a ton of TNT went up before clock ticked
Men and wives and children were killed in a time eye flicked
and he ain't gonna drive back home

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
with the gearbox in your belly and the camshaft in your eye
His innards were all over and the rest was blown in sky
and he ain't gonna drive back home.

Now resistance to invader is a thing I understand
it's the duty of the nation and a task to every man
But blind terror is a thing I really cannot comprehend
and he ain't gonna drive back home

Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die
with the gearbox in your belly and the camshaft in your eye
His innards were all over and the rest was blown in sky
and he ain't gonna drive back home.

The victims were civilians, not a single Yank was killed
I fail to see why anyone would be satisfied or thrilled
It's just a deed of psycopaths whose blood is cold and chilled
and he ain't gonna drive back home.

Gory, gory, he blew up himself in Hell
with killing scores of innocents and leaving few to tell
He's no hero but a murderer, and that should ring the bell
and he ain't gonna drive back home.

Your questions would be relevant if we were dealing with human beings instead of pestilential vermin.

Mr Lice, your comment shows you to be basically the same as those you detest: the people who do this kind of thing are still people - misguided and misled, true, but they are still people.

Excellent parody, Susanna. I couldn't agree with you more.
