Generals gathered in their masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
In the fields the bodies burning
Death and hatred to mankind
Oh lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
Why should they go out to fight?

Making war just for fun
Wait 'till their judgment day comes

Ashes where the bodies burning
Hand of God has struck the hour
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Satan laughing spreads his wings
