Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses

Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgment day comes
Yeah

Now in darkness, world stops turning
Ashes where their bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgment, God is calling
On their knees, the war pig's crawling
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh, Lord, yeah
