lyrics

All over…the world…people are cryin’ out
We all know…something’s just not right
The TV’s telling me…I should be afraid
They want me to kill…they want me to hate

Here come the politicians…to drive it home
If we don’t go to war…then freedom’s gone
They repeat the mantra…and say it proud
We don’t want the smokin’ gun…to become a mushroom cloud

You can’t make peace..by waging war
Can’t make things better…by killing more

All tyranny needs to survive…good people to stand by
As long as we look away…listen and blindly obey

A decade later…things are still the same
Still finding ways…to sell the charade
War is a racket…based on lies
Profits reckoned in dollar bills…and the losses in lives

You can’t make peace..by waging war
Can’t make things better…by killing more
If we look inside…we see we’re all the same
We claim to love a god by…killing in his name

All tyranny needs to survive…good people to stand by
As long as we look away…listen and blindly obey
This can’t go on….it has to end
No more…no more… no more… no more

All tyranny needs to survive…good people to stand by
As long as we look away…listen and blindly obey
This can’t go on….it has to end
No more…no more… no more… no more
