The general said "You're young I guess you don't understand
we've got to have these things in case it gets out of hand."
I say "What if they are like you always got to be on top?
Isn't there some way to end it, isn't there someplace to stop?"
"What if everyone thought like you?" the general said to me
"Oh what a vulnerable country we would be.
What if everyone thought like you?" the general said to me
I say "There would be some peace..."

The broker said you're young I guess you don't comprehend
These people all walking around got to have some money to spend.
And how can there be any money if we don't sell the things we can build?"
I say "Why don't you build something else to use without having to kill?"
"What if everyone thought like you?" the broker said to me
"Oh what a poor nation this would be.
What if everyone thought like you?" the broker said to me
I say "There would be some peace..."

Stop the war, stop the war, stop the war within yourself
and you won't need to fight with someone else

The newsman said "You're young I guess you don't see the light.
It ain't what goes on during the day, it's what goes out to the people at night.
The poeple, they like a good show, how can you deny them their due?"
I say "What does that say about us and what does that say about you?"
"What if everyone thought like you?" the newsman said to me
"Oh what a boring world this would be.
What if everyone thought like you?" the newsman said to me
I say "There would be some peace..."
