Peace

Every day another mans’ war
Since the day I was born
And every day before

It does not matter the uniform worn
No soldier ever started one
Just following the orders to which he was sworn

With spear sword and the gun
Or the madness of a terrorists’ bomb
The genocide of the innocent is done

Where has all this hate come from
How can we become so divided
Endless terror that will never be gone

Words of the dead misused creating hatred
Hypnotists of say turn dividing us more
How can it be this to which we are fated

Greed the blind madness of war
Excuses of hypocrites the only word
Justifying what children are dying for

Every day another mans’ tongue and sword
Since I was born another war
How can I believe another word

Every day another mans’ war
Since the day that you were born
And every day what was it for ?
