1983
B side of the EP She can dance
Life is just illusions
It's all been dreamed before
Some are marching for the peace
While others march to war
Some they live for hatred
Some they live for love
Some they live for nothing
They can't see what's above

They've built a wall around us
But every wall must end
It never worked in China
It kept nothing out or in
Do they know they can't divide us?
Like East and West Berlin?
For every hand that builds a wall
are ten to tear it down again

I'm talking now of Africa
USR's and USA's
and the whole world caught between them
and the dangerous games they play
Central, South America
Asia and The Middle East
You may think I'm crazy
You may think I'm naive
We don't want a world in pieces
Just a world that's left in peace

I'm tired of the violence
And belief that might is right
And the death squads who arrest you
In the middle of the night
I'm sickened by the hunger
The torture and the screams
While children they are starving
To feed the war machine

I'm angry at the weapons
The threats upon our lives
And those who hold the triggers
You know they have no right
While children they go hungry
And people die in jails
As long as there's one soul not free
I think the system's failed

To the shakers and the movers
And war philosophers
And all the pirate weapons
Manufacturers
And to the rich industrialists
Your houses built of greed
Take a look around you
See the forest from the trees

How much until you're satisfied
When will you have enough
Till the mountains are just stacks of bones
and the waters turn to blood
You've got weapons in the oceans
You got weapons in the air
In the mountains, up in outer space
You got weapons everywhere

I'm talking now of Africa
USR's and USA's
and the whole world caught between them
and the dangerous games they play
Central, South America
Asia and The Middle East
You may think I'm crazy
You may think I'm naive
We don't want a world in pieces
Just a world that's left in peace

Now half the world is sleeping
Half the world just cries
Half the world is in prison
Or fighting for their lives
We can turn our backs away
We can play it safe
But if we don't take our chance to speak
No one will escape

I'm looking to the future
I'm looking to the past
I'm looking to my enemies
I wanna make this moment last
There's truth within the ocean
There's truth within the stars
But there's no truth to ever match
The truth within our heart

I'm talking now of Africa
USR's and USA's
and the whole world caught between them
and the dangerous games they play
Central, South America
Asia and The Middle East
You may think I'm crazy
You may think I'm naive
We don't want a world in pieces
Just a world that's left in peace
