The Dogs of War

The dogs of war are howlin'at a full and blood-red moon
The fire of Hell is burnin' in their eyes.
Chains of steel bind them to their unseen master's hand
He turns them loose first on the left, then on the right.

Like magic guns and bombs appear wherever there is strife
And reap their bloody harvest of men,
young and old, and women, soldiers, stark and staring dead eyes cold,
the ripened fruit of someone else's sin.

The cannons fire another round
The warning sirens start to sound
Greedy missiles always seeking more....
To feed the dogs of war.

The master of the dogs of war is Satan's only son.
When he says "Jump!" governments say, "How high?"
He orchestrates their politics and rules behind the scenes
With flattery and subterfuge and lies.

Money has no hold on him
He doles it out to lesser men
Like hungry little pigs they fight for more.
He craves for power and control
The lust to rule corrupts his soul
He subjugates the rich and gives the poor....
To feed the dogs of war.

The master of the dogs of war will reap what he has sown.
He'll lose his hold upon the souls of men.
The Hell he`s made for others will soon become his own
And his bloody rule will meet a fiery end.

The bells of freedom start to sound
And soldiers throw their weapons down
All nations swear that they will fight no more....
Or feed the dogs of war.
Or heed the dogs of war.
We don`t need the dogs of war.
The dogs of war....
