Machine Hammer

I picked up my machine hammer and I swung it around.
I looked you dead in the eye then I brought my hammer down.
Oh yeah… it felt real nice to smash your mechanical organs.
I didn’t want to do it. I tried.
I’m not the one who started this war man.

I’ve worked for years. I swear I’ve tried
to do my part… to do things right.
But it now seems clear to me tonight
that the man will never be on my side.
He’s gonna face the music tonight.
He’s gonna face the music tonight.
I’ll scream in his ear as I twist his windpipe.
I’ve had enough of the lies.

I think that I might have found the cure
for what’s ailing me, for what’s wrong with this world.
I’m not gonna swing my hammer for you anymore
You once led me to believe if I worked hard, I would succeed.
Now I strongly disagree because I do work hard and I still have nothing.

I’m not gonna swing my hammer for you anymore
I don’t need you… sic semper tyrannis!
