[Verse 1]
Dm C Dm
Come you masters of war
Dm C Dm
You that build all the guns
Dm C Dm
You that build the death planes
Dm C Dm
You that build all the bombs
Dm C Dm
You that hide behind walls
Dm C Dm
You that hide behind desks
Dm C
I just want you to know
G Dm
I can see through your masks.

[Verse 2]
Dm C Dm
You that never done nothin'
Dm C Dm
But build to destroy
Dm C Dm
You play with my world
Dm C Dm
Like it's your little toy
Dm C Dm
You put a gun in my hand
Dm C Dm
And you hide from my eyes
Dm C
And you turn and run farther
G Dm
When the fast bullets fly.

[Verse 3]
Dm C Dm
Like Judas of old
Dm C Dm
You lie and deceive
Dm C Dm
A world war can be won
Dm C Dm
You want me to believe
Dm C Dm
But I see through your eyes
Dm C Dm
And I see through your brain
Dm C
Like I see through the water
G Dm
That runs down my drain.

[Verse 4]
Dm C Dm
You fasten all the triggers
Dm C Dm
For the others to fire
Dm C Dm
Then you set back and watch
Dm C Dm
When the death count gets higher
Dm C Dm
You hide in your mansion'
Dm C Dm
As young people's blood
Dm C
Flows out of their bodies
G Dm
And is buried in the mud.

[Verse 5]
Dm C Dm
You've thrown the worst fear
Dm C Dm
That can ever be hurled
Dm C Dm
Fear to bring children
Dm C Dm
Into the world
Dm C Dm
For threatening my baby
Dm C Dm
Unborn and unnamed
Dm C
You ain't worth the blood
G Dm
That runs in your veins.

[Verse 6]
Dm C Dm
How much do I know
Dm C Dm
To talk out of turn
Dm C Dm
You might say that I'm young
Dm C Dm
You might say I'm unlearned
Dm C Dm
But there's one thing I know
Dm C Dm
Though I'm younger than you
Dm C
That even Jesus would never
G Dm
Forgive what you do.

[Verse 7]
Dm C Dm
Let me ask you one question
Dm C Dm
Is your money that good
Dm C Dm
Will it buy you forgiveness
Dm C Dm
Do you think that it could
Dm C Dm
I think you will find
Dm C Dm
When your death takes it's toll
Dm C
All the money you made
G Dm
Will never buy back your soul.

[Verse 8]
Dm C Dm
And I hope that you die
Dm C Dm
And your death'll come soon
Dm C Dm
I will follow your casket
Dm C Dm
In the pale afternoon
Dm C Dm
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Dm C Dm
Down to your deathbed
Dm C
And I'll stand over your grave
G Dm
'Til I'm sure that you're dead.
