Who wants a War?
The world is torn, it's gone insane
And we've all been brought to war again
But bombs don't fall, they take the train -
My heart's filled with dismay
That I should live to mourn and cry
While those around me fall and die
With no adequate explaination why
So many souls are torn away.
Will I learn err today is done
That the war is over, the battle won?
More likely it has just begun
Oh, how my heart is torn
That life's so callously tossed aside
Destroyed by greed and misplaced pride
So many lost - so many died
That won't see another dawn.
Perhaps I may yet be surprised
And hope's not lost, only disgused
A brighter sun is yet to rise
And shine its rays on me
Clouds may drift like soft white dreams
Across a sky by rain washed clean
And everywhere the war has been
May at last be free.
I may yet walk that road that wends
'Neath the sparkling rainbow's bend
Our children may see where it ends
And when they get their calling
They won't be asked to take up arms
For their world is free from harm
And they've no need for alarm;
There's no need for brawling.
Though their world has issues too
They've found a way to talk them through
And mend them without much ado
And keep their peacetime flowing...
But now we're riddled with despair

Disaster's rife upon the air
Hitler, Stalin, what were they for
If not to warn against more war?
I, for one, can't take much more -
All the hurt, all the crying.
I can't watch, I won't stand by
And watch graves rise up against the sky
Or make more friends and watch them die
It's got to be worth trying.
Tell Blair and Bush to leave Iraq
Release our troops - we want them back
No one wants a world as black
As the one they've created.
So come on friends, we must all go
And join our voices to shout out NO!
We will not brawl, we've more to show;
We're more educated.
We know better, we're not blind,
We'll not put our fists before our minds
Better to leave war behind
And trust diplomacy
May every path that humans walk
Join together so we may talk
And find a way to make it work
And finally be free.
