Death comes like a ???? in the midst of all wars
Reason and logic, the generals cry "more"
Bodies in gullies, contortionate poses
Caught by the same time, as the guns and roses

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

Nice business guns, bombs to the haloed Moon
Trust this landscape to the barren gloom
A bulletproof Bible can protect your heart
It'll cover your eyes when you're falling apart

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

???? rise higher for the martyrs ?????
???????? freedom for unprovoked attack
Get in there and use them, the shatter????? bomb
Armies create circles, sparks for the dawn

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

There's only bombs, nobody's left alive
Take me back to the war I survived
These were people like you and I
Take me back to the war I survived
