Black Sabbath – War Pigs lyrics

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!

    It is about war in general and the futility of war, about usless cowardess politicians who do nothing but cause war and send the inocent to die. The song conjures up images of the 1st and 2nd world wars, the death camps and bloodshed, of Hitler and his minions who will be called to answer for their sins! (Please note). Voting fixes nothing, it only adds to the problems caused by the political machine! Monolith!
