War Pigs

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 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 'til their judgement day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!

AND

ALL WE ARE SAYING IS GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

Child in Time - Deep Purple

1. Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix/Band Of Gypsys

Agreed. Listen to Live at the Fillmore East version too (from the same set of concerts). It's just as good. Edited by Geezer

"Yellow Ledbetter" by Pearl Jam. This was an outtake from the band's debut album, Ten. "Yellow Ledbetter" was selected by the band to be the second B-side to the 1992 single for the song "Jeremy", which was where it first appeared. The song eventually found its way onto radio, peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The song was included on the 2003 B-sides and rarities album, Lost Dogs, and on Pearl Jam's 2004 greatest hits album, Rearviewmirror (Greatest Hits 1991–2003).

Give peace a chance oughta be the most important one, but musically wise, it's not very complex.

I'd rather say that Revolution is the best Anti War song.

But that's why it's great.. the message is simple, loud and clear.

Revolution is an excellent choice..

So This Is Christmas? as well..

imo Lennon was the greatest lyricist ... by far.

What I find ironic is when Born in the USA is played as a patriotic song at sporting events or Fourth of July parades.

Every Breath You Take is misconstrued by some as a love song and played at their wedding. I don't think it's necessarily ironic, more that some people are stupid and don't even listen to the lyrics of a song properly.
