Lords Of War Lyrics

Otep – Lords Of War Lyrics

from album: Generation Doom (2016)
[Sample: Franklin D. Roosevelt]
With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph. So help us, God

[Verse 1]
More wars on foreign shores
More names for us to mourn
To misguide the misinformed
To ignore the sick and poor
Thus, we praise the lords of war
On our knees and beg for more
A fresh poison for the weak
Filthy little beasts
Bred to conform
It's the dwarfed souls of greedy men
Feculent, arrogant
That shackles our young to the cold concrete
And empty their guns into bodies

[Pre-Chorus]
They scream "I'm not guilty"
They scream "I'm not guilty"
But cowards here are only what they fear
Shoot until the threat stops

[Chorus](x2)
I'd rather be in battle than at peace
I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep
I'd rather be in battle than slaughtered like cattle
The weak can sleep while

[Verse 2]
You were born to be led
That's what religion says
With a bifurcated tongue
America eats its young
Bullet-toothed, empty gods
Paralyze the minds and contest the thoughts
With devils everywhere
Bombs bursting in the air
Drones flown over thrones
Of bone and brimstone
Sabers rattle in the homes
Of the cowards and the crones
As they shackle our young
Blood stains the streets
Pigs empty their guns in their bodies

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus](x2)

Bow down to the lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war
Bow down to the lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war

[Bridge](x2)
We rise in defiance
We won't remain silent
To triumph over tyrants
And police violence
Shoot until the threat stop

We're not guilty
We're not
We're not guilty
We're not
We're not guilty
Help us God

[Chorus](x2)

[Outro]
The lords of war
On your knees for the lords of war
Bow down to the lords of war

What is so terrible about a child screaming?
Why should it disturb us?
Just because we happen to be there to hear it?
What about the child who comes from an inadequate home, where he gets no encouragement from his parents
Where he doesn't have enough to wear, he doesn't have enough to eat, he comes to school hungry...
This beautiful, breathtaking...
