“War Pigs”
Artist: Black Sabbath
Albums: Paranoid (1970)

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerer of death's construction

In the fields are 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 all to the poor

Yeah!

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til the 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 pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings

Oh Lord Yeah!

Original Lyrics

(Previous to the release of the "Paranoid" album)

Witches gather at black masses
Bodies burning in red ashes
On the hill the church in ruins
It's a scene of evil doings

It's a place for all bad sinners
Watch them eating dead rats' innards
I guess it's the same
Where ever you may go

Oh Lord Yeah!

Carry banners which denounce the Lord
Watch me rocking in my grave
See them anoint my head with dead rat's blood
See them stick the steak through me

Oh!

Don't hold me back cause I just gotta go
They've got a hold of my soul now
Lord's got my brain instinct with blood obscene
Look in my eyes I'm there enough

Yeah!

On the scene a priest appears
Sinners falling at his knees
Satan sends out funeral pyre
Casts the priest into the fire

It's the place for all bad sinners
Watch them eating dead rats' innards
I guess it's the same
Where ever you may go

Oh Lord Yeah!
