Pearl JamMasters Of War

Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build all the bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks We just want you to know we can see through your masks You that never done nothing But build and destroy You play with our world Like it's your little toy You put a gun in my head And then you hide from my eyes Then you turn and run following the fast foolish line Like Judas of old You lie and deceive A world war can be won You won't need to believe But I see through your eye And I see through your brain Like I see through the water that runs down my drain You that fasten all the trigger For the others to fire And you sit back and watch While the death toll gets higher You hide in your mansion While young people's blood Flows out of their bodies and is buried in the mud You've thrown the worst fear That could ever be hurled The fear to bring children Into this world For threatening my baby Unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood that runs through your veins How much do we know To talk out of turn? You might say that we're young You might say we're unlearned But there's one thing I know Though I'm younger than you Even Jesus would never forgive what you do Let me ask you one question Is your money that good? Will it buy you forgiveness? Do you think that it would? Oh, I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made will never buy back your soul And I hope that you die And your death will come soon I'll stand on your [Incomprehensible] In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Into your deathbed And I'll stand on your grave till I'm sure that you're dead © 2015
