  • Rifle butts, band aids
    Mortar bombs and hand grenades
    Match battle cruisers
    Who came out the losers
    Lie in the long grass
    Can't let them pass
    Bullets flying all ways
    Let me get through the day

    Mars the bringer the bringer the bringer of war
    Mars the bringer of war, what for

    Atom bombs, night sights
    Submarines and satellites
    Flame thrower back pack
    You just gotta fight back
    Caught in the barbed wire
    Halt or I fire
    Cannon fodder faces
    Put them through their paces

    Mars the bringer the bringer the bringer of war
    Destroyer of life, that's right, that's right

    Atom bombs, night sights
    Submarines and satellites
    Flame thrower back pack
    You just gotta fight back
    Caught in the barbed wire
    Halt or I fire
    Cannon fodder faces
    Put them through their paces

    Mars the bringer the bringer the bringer of war
    The bringer of war, what for
