​Masters Of War

This song is by England and appears on the album Garden Shed (1977).

Come, you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the bigbombs

You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know I can see through your masks

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world

For threatenin' my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood that runs in your veins

Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good?
Will it buy you forgiveness?
Do you think that it could?

I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made will never buy back your soul

And I hope that you die
And your death will come soon
I'll follow your casket
On a pale afternoon

I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand over your grave till I'm sure that you're dead
And I'll stand over your grave till I'm sure that you're dead
