"Mouth for War" is the first track off of Pantera's sixth album Vulgar Display of Power and was the first single. It was later released on the band's compilation album, The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys' Vulgar Hits!.

According to Phil Anselmo, "Mouth for War" is about channeling your hate into something productive. This is evident in the lyrics "When I channel my hate to productive, I don't find it hard to impress".

The song was released as downloadable content for the music video game Rock Revolution.

LyricsEdit

Revenge  
I'm screaming revenge again  
Wrong  
I've been wrong for far too long  
Been constantly so frustrated
I've moved mountains with less  
When I channel my hate to productive  
I don't find it hard to impress

Bones in traction 
Hands break to hone raw energy  
Bold and disastrous  
My ears can't hear what you say to me

Hold your mouth for the war  
Use it for what it's for 
Speak the truth about me  
Determined

Possessed
I feel a conquering will down inside me  
Strength  
The strength of many to crush  
Who might stop me  
My strength is in number 
And my soul lies in every one 
The releasing of anger can better any medicine under the sun

Bones in traction 
Hands break to hone raw energy  
Bold and disastrous  
My ears can't hear what you say to me

Hold your mouth for the war  
Use it for what it's for 
Speak the truth about me  
Determined

There comes a time within everyone  
Don't close your eyes to what's real
  
No comprehension to fail  
I vacuum the wind for my sail  
Can't be the rest 
Let others waste my time 
Owning success is the bottom line
  
Like a knife into flesh 
After life is to death 
Pulling and pushing the rest of duration  
NO ONE can piss on this determination
