Kill for gain or shoot to maim

But we dont need a reason

The golden goose is on the loose

And never out of season

Some blackened pride still burns inside

This shell of bloody treason

Heres my gun for a barrel of fun

For the love of living death.

The killers breed or the demons seed,

The glamour, the fortune, the pain,

Go to war again, blood is freedoms stain,

But dont you pray for my soul anymore.

2 minutes to midnight

The hands that threaten doom.

2 minutes to midnight

To kill the unborn in the womb.

The blind men shout let the creatures out

Well show the unbelievers

The napalm screams of human flames

Of a prime time belsen feast...yeah!

As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy,

We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two

And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you.

As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song,

To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun.

Midnight...all night...
