THE ENDGAME

Evil power hungry ego-beast
The demon marches to the fore
His servants surround him
Eager to do his bidding
Gleefully raging, war, war, war !

Evil power hungry ego-beast
The demon marches to the fore
His servants surround him
Eager to do his bidding
Gleefully raging, war, war, war !

Kill the pacifists! Gore the enemy!
God is on our side!
Comes prince of darkness
Seething , vengeful , full of wrath
On earth he does reside!

Satan has full power, he's never had it more
He gloats, his time has come
Ho! Onward Christians soldiers
Marching off to war

Violent forces come together
Thirsty for the kill
Begins part l of the bloodiest battle
The world has ever known
The last it ever will.

MY View

I went to bed feeling ill
Knowing how some people feel

A world of hate
Won't eradicate

The wars of power , greed
Love, not hate, is what we need

Some love Bush and urge him on
to destroy more countries 'till they're gone

Do they want us to stand alone?
Power over all, that's dead and gone?

How pitiful that they don't see
Take out one leader and there will be

Another turned out in his place
With power driven greed upon his face

Over and over , there is no end
Until the world can comprehend

Love and peace, compassionate souls
Holding hands, we'd reach our goals
