​War Pigs

This song is by Elf and appears on the album Live At The Bank (1972).

This song is a cover of "War Pigs" by ​Black Sabbath.
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers 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 their role to 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 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 pigs crawling
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah
