Lyrics:

Baghdad

Baghdad's burning bright, in the hearts and souls of everyone
We've been killing for ten thousand years, we watch it on the tele for fun
You don't think they look like you, their blood runs just like yours
Baghdad's burning so bright, so bright, is the light

The light, everybody's searching for, it's for all to see
And the light everybody's fighting for, it's in you and me

With the wave of the guns, if they'd just stop hurting everybody, we could be one

Baghdad's burning bright, it's an ancient town that holds a clue
Been killing for ten thousand years, we watch it on the tele for fun

Do you feel the western beat merging with the eastern light
Do you feel the light?
Do you feel the eastern light merging with the western beat
Under American skies
Do you feel the eastern beat merging with the western light
Under Assyrian skies
Do you feel the eastern beat merging with the western light
Do you feel the light?

And the light, everyone is looking for, it's for all to see
And the light everybody's searching for, it's in you and me
And the fight everybody's killing for, it's so old and diseased
And the light everyone is waiting for

And the light is in everyone
Yes the light is in everyone
And the light is in everyone

I had a dream I was flying away, in an iron bird of prey
Command cried bombs away, but we we're dropping drums
This rhythm circled the entire globe, it was healing the air
All race color and creed started to sway, in the light of day


Cause your heart is on fire
Underneath American skies
Cause your heart is alive
Underneath the great Assyrian Sky
Cause your heart is on fire
Underneath the great American skies
Cause your heart is alive
Underneath American skies
