Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of deaths 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 till their judgement day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
As the war machine keeps burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of God has sturck 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

Oh Lord, yeah!

    General CommentThe Dresdens played this cover of Black Sabbath in many of their shows. You can find them on etc. Brian does an amazing job on drums. Its unbelievable how 2 people pulled this song off so well. They are very talented.

    General CommentI'm proud that I'm able to say I know the words to this song now, so when people talk about warpigs, I'm not utterly clueless. I think she has an awesome voice for this song, though my father disagrees.
