War Pigs

Gen’rals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses.
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerers of death’s construction.

In the fields are bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning.
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds.

Politicians hide themselves away,
They only started the war.
Why should they go out to fight,
They leave that all to the poor.

Time will tell on their power minds,
Making war just for fun.
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait ‘til their judgment day comes.

Now in darkness world stops turning,
Ashes where the bodies burning.
No more war pigs have the power,
And as God has struck the hour.

Day of judgment, God is calling.
On their knees the war pigs crawling,
Begging mercies for their sins.
Satan laughing spreads his wings.
