Kent Jensen and Idumea: Music

On the Road to Baghdad

(Idumea)

Music Kent Jensen Lyrics Kent Jensen
On the road to Baghdad
Like so many more before me
The land where Abraham talked to God
Fertile with the spilt blood of a million lives
And I have come to die here now

I see the ghosts of Caesar’s legions
Marching through the haze
Greek, Ottoman and the English
Made their claim here too
The echoes of forgotten empires
Whisper in the wind
And I have come to die here now

They’ve all been here with blade and steel
But their chariots have crumbled into dust
The desert sands have erased their footsteps
And I have come to die here now
