Today we remember those who gave their lives. Today we honor them, and we should. We should because those lives helped give us such amazing freedoms. One of those is the freedom to write what I am about to.
I truly salute and honor those that died fighting for us. I salute those that died fighting for reasons they were never told. Because they were told to, and they did it. They upheld their end of the bargain. We need to fight when it’s right. How about we start there? With what’s right. Not with what lines pockets. When will we uphold OUR end to take care of them? To take care of the ones that came back but didn’t. To stop sending more to die when they shouldn’t.
This is a simple plea. A plea to stop the careless disregard for human life. To stop needlessly casting more boys into the pyre. To stop tearing families apart in the name of falseness. You know who you are. This day is not about you, it is about them. This song’s about you.
Gen’rals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerer of death’s 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 for the poor, yeah
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,
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 mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah
