Come down baby from the mountain top
It's time for you to let this go
There's things out there you just can't stop
There's things out there you just don't know
There's nowhere left for you to run

And all these books and all these words
Incompatible, absurd
You're watching on your TV set
'Til the world's a burning wreck
'Til you can hate someone you've never met..

Well all I see is hate and greed
People fighting in the streets
And all these tears are washing me away...
And Intolerance and genocide
And your book says that mine's a lie
If God's on your side... then who's on mine?

I woke up sleeping in a dream
All the boys had come back home
Your family's dancing in the streets
Your cousin's on the telephone
There's no need left for you to roam..

Jesus, Buddha, Zeus and Jah
Apollo, Vishnu, and Allah
Bullets rain while children play
Do you watch or look away?
Tell me who decides, who will choose,
who will win, who will lose?

When all I see is hate and greed
People fighting in the streets
And all these tears are wearing us away...

And Intolerance and genocide
And your book says that mine's a lie
If God's on your side, then who's on mine?

You knelt there in a pew
And you said a prayer or two..

Lit a candle for luck
Put your money in the cup..

You quote chapter and verse
And how your God got here first..
In a stem cell Petrie dish
there's a Darwin bumper fish...

Come down, baby from the mountaintop (Come down, baby)
Take a breath and let it go (Come down, baby)
There's things out there you just can't stop (Come down, baby)
There's things out there you'll never know (Come down, baby)
There's no need left for you to run....

All I see is hate and greed
People fighting in the streets
And all these tears are wasting us away
And when we wake up in this war
but no one knows what it was for
Was God on my side...or was he on yours?
If God's on your side...then who's on mine?
