Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role 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 judgement day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!

    Y'all ready for another war in The Middle East that will make Iraq & Afghanistan look like a fight in the playground? Does anyone really care? It's somewhere way over there somewhere, right? smh

    Military industrial complex gets its comeuppance... And boy do they ever deserve it. I include the banking cabal with the witches plotting destruction for their benefit. Let's pray the retribution is half as chilling as depicted in this sabbath classic...

    Military industrial complex explained in plain easy to understand terms. Ever wonder why rock music was deemed so terrible and bad for you. Because for decades rock n roll tells the story that the elitists of the world want to keep hidden.
