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 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!

Recording Notes from Frank Hannon
"Holy s@#t! This track is sure to please the analog purist. Recorded live in 1 take, we decided to keep all the pure tracks to give you the magic in its pure form. JK’s vocals are chillingly clear and Troy’s drums filled the control room. Enter the Big Muff pedal for some crazy sustain and there you have it. All the guitars solos were played live. Dave and I are dueling the guitar battle in the studio live on the spot."
