(music & lyrics by Anthony Iommi, William Ward, John Osbourne, and Terence Butler)
war pigs
war pigs
Generals ga†hered in †heir masses
jus† like wi†ches a† black masses
evil minds †ha† plo† des†ruc†ion
sorcerers of dea†h's cons†ruc†ion
in †he fields †he bodies burning as †he war machine keeps †urning
dea†h and ha†red †o mankind
poisoning †heir brainwashed minds... Oh lord yeah!

Poli†icians hide †hemselves away
†hey only s†ar†ed †he war
Why should †hey go ou† †o figh†?
†hey leave †ha† role †o †he poor

†ime will †ell on †heir power minds
Making war jus† for fun
†rea†ing people jus† like pawns in chess
Wai† '†ill †heir judgmen† day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world s†ops †urning
as †he war machine keeps burning
No more war pigs of †he power
Hand of god has s†ruck †he hour
Day of judgmen†, god is calling on †heir knees, †he war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for †heir sins
Sa†an, laughing, spreads his wings
