They shoot missiles and nukes
Taking out such a pivotal group
The body count is the physical proof
And they thought drugs were killing the youth
Gorillas in suits definitely refers to politicians and their involvement in starting wars. The holy war can refer to Israel vs. Palestine, or just the larger “war on terror” that has made many Christians and Muslims feel like they are at war against each other when they are ultimately fighting over the “mythical truth” or something they can’t prove.
The pivotal group is the youth, because it is the youth that are sent to fight wars, mostly lower class youth that don’t have many other options. Their dead bodies are the proof that the main cause for death is going to war and killing people, not just people in the streets and drugs.
