Hey Mr. War Machine
Why do you talk down to me
To convice me to support your cause
But I know I'm not that blind
Oh I know I'm not that blind
Don't you know you're ruthless and mean
Killing people, watching families greive
Just to satisfy your own needs
But the rest of us are not that kind
Oh the rest of us are not that kind

Terror and bloodshed
For oil, money and power
Civilians and soldiers dead
The numbers growing by the hour
Bombs fall from the sky above
The streets filled with fire
The new commander in cheif
He's got guns for hire

Another nation's sovereignty
Violated by corporate greed
And you say it's just to keep us free
But we know that's such a lie
Oh we know that's such a lie
Your propaganda on the TV screen
You try to scare us, bring us to our knees
And then you hide what you don't want us to see
But the truth will come out into the light
Oh the truth will come out into the light

You sit behind your office desk
While the soldier fight and die
But I know you'd never have the courage
To join them on the frontlines
Your words mean nothing at all
Cause every word you speak is a lie
And when God has his way with you
Judgement day won't look so bright
Hey hey Mr. War Machine
Hey hey Mr. War Machine
Hey hey Mr. War Machine
Hey hey Mr. War Machine
