Black Sabbath

War pigs

(Iommi, Osbourne, Butler, Ward)

From the album Paranoid, 1970, (Vertigo 6059 010)

Sample here

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 brain-washed 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 tailon their powered minds
making war just for fun
treating people just like pawns in chess
wait till their judgement day comes

Now in darkeness the world stops turning
as the war machine keeps burning
no more war pigs of the power
and as God has struck the hour
Day of judgement God is calling
on their knees the war pigs crawling
begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
All right now!
