Batten down the hatches, the devil's got the wretched twitch
Send in the cold assassins with a blitzkrieg fever pitch
All eyes on you, hypnotic voodoo
An overnight sensation, isn't that what you wanted?
Global sodomy, earthly catastrophe
New world order, thy will be done

Starlight, star-bright, who we gonna kill tonight?
Vermin in the burrows? Hunters in the shadows?

All the king's horses and all the king's men
Sent to fight a rich man's war have come home cold and dead
In a forest of hanging bodies, we're feeding the trees
Blood, sweat and oil, and plastic apologies

Into the jaws of death! Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!
Big war, big business, moral suicide

The worm has turned, your cities have burned
The sky is on fire, your children are dead

Starlight, starbright, who we gonna kill tonight?
Compassion to calm the empire, or fall the way of Rome
Bring your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters home
