Killing the Taliban
I’m busy killing the Taliban
With my dancing and my song.
Causing their destruction
I don’t think it’ll take too long.
They’ve come out of the Dark Ages
With their joyless cult of death.
We’re fighting their misogyny
With all our hearts and breath.
There’s a misery surrounding them
With their brainwashed ideology.
They live for death; we live for life
And the love of being free.
So with our instruments of love
We’ll play our symphony
And waken the joys of life
From their stone-cold misery.
They made the mistake of thinking
Their god hates music and song;
That women are all second class;
How could they have got it all so wrong?
So with the magic of our strings
And the beauty of our voice
We’ll sing a song of love
That’ll make their hearts rejoice.
So I’m killing the Taliban today
I’m dancing as I sing.
They’ll throw their joyless book away
And let freedom ring!

What kind of miserable death cult is it that kills people for singing and dancing?
What kind of doctrine is it that squanders the wonder of their own lives and seeks to put an end to pleasure?
What kind of cult is this that seeks to live in the past? That thinks stoning is an apt punishment and women are inferior?
I think the human spirit is vital and alive. It knows that song and dance are not crimes.
You defeat such a brainwashed cult by showing them a better way.
Instead of following some hollow words from the Dark Ages we can come together to celebrate, women and men, children and the old, – there’s the treasure.
You kill a wicked, warped ideology with something better.
We’ll play a happy song to prove that they are wrong.
