"The Words That Maketh Murder" is a song by the English alternative rock musician PJ Harvey. The song was released as the first single from her eighth studio album, Let England Shake, on February 6, 2011. Dealing with diplomacy, the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan and world wars, it is Harvey's first solo single since 2007's "When Under Ether" and uses similar dynamics of song-writing to its predecessor including its folk influence and instrumentation. An accompanying music video, directed by Seamus Murphy, was released prior to the single in January 2010 and is the second part of a twelve music-film project documenting Let England Shake.
