[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

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

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)

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