Oh, War…Tis senseless
To smash the skull of your brother in the name of God.
Oh, War…Tis corrupt
To make money out of arms destined for the front.
Oh, War…Tis Cruel
To make orphans out of families, widows out of wives.
Oh, War…Tis Out of Date
To ignore the plight of a brother on the other side of the world.
When will we stop the horror? When the killing ends.
When will we stop the destruction? When the bombs stop falling.
When will we come together? When we reconcile peace and anger.
Now is the time for a little bit of love to stop the cannon shell. When will this happen?
