WAR PIGS by Black Sabbath (1970)

Bassist Geezer Butler's lyrics about the working class being treated like "pawns in chess" when their country goes to war. Also a "The Warmongers will get theirs in the end!" warning at the end of the song.

I wonder if that`s the album on which his Student Visas song appears? ( The song takes the form of jaded reminicences from a US operative in Central America).

For an album dedicated exclusively to the topic, there is Country Joe McDonald`s album, War,War,War, in which he put the poems of Robert W. Service to music. Deadly serious, occasionally cynical, very spare, it`s an unusual listening experience. What I particularly like about it is that we are hearing the thoughts of a guy who was actually there in the trenches during the First World War, so we hear the genuine, contemporaneous mixture of patriotism and horror in lines like this: "Everywhere thrill the air the maniac bells of war."
Dip into another time, another world, another mindset here:-

Pink Floyd-Us and Them. What a beautiful song about a horrific subject.
