"In the Garden of Allah" -- Fiction?

In seminar next week we'll consider, a propos John Mills' autobiographical Thank Your Mother for the Rabbits, what is and what isn't fiction. Have a look here at the lyrics to Don Henley's "In the Garden of Allah" ahead of your upcoming seminar.
ps: a prize for the first person in each seminar to identify the obvious mistranscription (evident without having to listen to the song.)
pps: you can find a .rm version of the music video here.

In this fiction, I want to add to the ending:
In the garden of allah
Everybody is welcome
And people have a pie of fate
No matter, if it's bitter or sweet
Leave some parts for survivors
In the garden of allah

Brilliant! Strong argument for its status as fiction ...
