[Intr: Guitar only]
[Rhy. Fig 1]
[Rhy. Fig 2c w/ End 1]

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 1]
Wanna bite the hand that feeds me
Wanna turn the tides
Set the demons free and watch 'em fly
[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 2]
Strike down the one who leads me
I'm gonna take his place
Gonna vindicate the human race

[Rhy. Fig 2a then Rhy. Fig 2b]
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine
[Rhy. Fig 2c w/ End 1]
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 1]
Take the reins of power and seize them
Draw the battle lines
Armageddon's just a matter of time
[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ End 2]
Tear down the voice of reason
Let the arrows fly
Your freedom's just a state of mind, yeah

[Rhy. Fig 2a then Rhy. Fig 2b] (2x)
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine
You better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine

You better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine
You better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine

[Rhy. Fig 2a then Rhy. Fig 2b] (4x)
Better watch out
'Cause I'm a war machine
I'm a war machine
I'm a war machine ...
