You come at me from behind, knife in hand
Trying to take me hostage, figuring you would use me to your sickening way
I should have known better than to come here, being a stranger to this land
I had no fears about being abducted, especially by some deranged person in order just to get their way.

In your sick mind you think you will negotiate with my life
But the needs of the few out weigh the needs of the one
See, no matter what you do, I will be the only one affected by your strife
You probably think abducting me is some kind of fun.

I came to this country thinking I would help others
But I see that was my ignorance and mistake
How could anyone do this to a fellow brother?
In God's eyes we are all his children, but boy did I make a mistake.

In layman's terms you are known as a terrorist
Taking others against their will, abducting them, threatening them, thinking you will get your sick way
You will threaten my life, trying to scare me, before I enter death's vast abyss
You are ready to kill me not really caring just so you can achieve your way.

In the midst of all this, you think your cause is right
But I will hold steadfast, I am not afraid, I just worry about those I will leave behind
But you, you will do anything for your cause, your fight
When you kill me. you think your message will be defined.

by abbey74 Iraq?
As I read this, I can't help but to think of the souls who have been abducted and beheaded by the terrorists in Iraq. I feel that the spirits of those people deserve a tribute like this.
