I hear drums They be banging non-stop getting louder They be playing that song every hour Sound waves resonate: Murder! Murder! I hear drums All I hear is drums getting louder It ain’t tribal; tribes are getting wiped out War drums in your mind till your conscience is blocked out I hear drums Why they always getting louder?! Drums of death they be banging every hour I hear drums War drums getting louder I ain’t deluded; although that fact may have eluded, your attention So please pay attention When I mention: THERE’S NOTHING HUMANITARIAN ABOUT YOUR INTERVENTION! They’re aversions From the crimes you’ve perpetrated All the havoc on this earth you’ve created War to war — Imperialist agenda Send the troops in; but you never let the truth out Those that do: you pay till they sell out Then bombs fly out Multiplying They’ll blow out your head if you ain’t complying I hear drums The war drums are getting louder They be banging it in your head every hour I hear drums It’s the fucking war drums!
