More from the ipod.

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!
