Masters Of War

Text písně Masters Of War

Come you masters of war 
You that build the big guns 
You that build the death planes 
You that build all the bombs 
You that hide behind walls 
You that hide behind desks 
I just want you to know I can see through your masks 

Like Judas of old 
You lie and deceive 
A world war can be won 
You want me to believe 
But I see through your eyes 
And I see through your brain 
Like I see through the water that runs down my drain 

You fasten all the triggers 
For the others to fire 
Then you sit back and watch 
While the death count gets higher 
You hide in your mansion 
While the young people's blood 
Flows out of their bodies and into the mud 

You've thrown the worst fear 
That can ever be hurled 
Fear to bring children 
Into the world 
For threatening my baby 
Unborn and unnamed 
You're not worth the blood that runs in your veins 

And I hope that you die 
And your death will come soon 
I'll follow your casket 
On a pale afternoon 
And I'll watch while you're lowered 
Down to your deathbed 
I'll stand over your grave 
Till I'm sure that you're dead
