I am so tired of watching reports on the war on TV news each night. I support the troops, but this is turning into another Vietnam. I don't want it to change and they become hated just for doing what the country asked them to do. Vietnam vets were treated so unkind.
So, what you ask, did I hear on my ipod to get me writing on this? Black Sabbath's War Pigs. Released September 18, 1970 in the UK & January 1, 1971 in the US, it is a song short on lyrics, but powerful none the less. I found a video of it on Youtube, circa 1970, and I included the lyrics.
Generals gathered in their masses Just like witches at black masses Evil minds that plot destruction Sorcerers of deaths 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 to the poor
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 As the war machine keeps burning No more war pigs of the power Hand of God has sturck the hour Day of judgement, God is calling On their knees, the war pigs crawling Begging mercy for their sins Satan, laughing, spreads his wings All right now!
