    Lyrics »

I hear them yelling “Peace and safety”
Telling me everything’s gonna be all right
But they just took my eighteen year old brother
Teaching him how to kill and to fight

Another young man dead, but who gives a damn
Those Generals on Wall Street
Got control of our land

Lift up your voices
And shout out the warning to them
Open the eyes of the blind
Show the people their sins
The lamb’s book predestines your end

I see the smoke rising up from the fire
And it’s our heads that you see in the noose
Oh Lord someone’s got to warn the people
Tell them that the war horse is on the loose
