2 Songs To Compare.

This time I chose to compare "War Pigs" from Black Sabbath from the album "Paranoid" and "Antichrist Superstar" by Marilyn Manson from the album with the same name.

In a way they make a loose reference to apocalyptical circumstances, including keywords like "judgement day" and "antichrist". Both address issues about politics and modern society, but they took place in different eras. We are still fighting wars out there, probably on other grounds.

WAR PIGS (1970)

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!


You built me up with your wishing hell
I didn't have to sell you
You threw your money in my pissing well
You do just what they tell you
REPENT, that's what I'm talking about
I shed the skin to feed the fake
REPENT, that's what I'm talking about
Whose mistake am I anyway?
Cut the head off
Grows back hard
I am the hydra
Now you'll see your star
Prick your finger it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread its wings
The time has come for bitter things (chorus)
The time has come it is quite clear
Our Antichrist
Is almost here...
It is done
