Rumors of war
In a distance there are rumors of a war that is brewing
People do not understand what it is their leaders are doing
So when the bombs are falling and the mortar shells are flying
Many who are not prepared will be among those who are dying.
Sometimes the news is disheartening and the media clips so sad
Why must we continue this violence that is created by the very bad?
Must it always be through the blood shed and the destruction of the other
What has happened to the theory that everyone is my sister and brother?
So we're returning to the flaunting of muscles and of our military power
The end result will never be so glorious when hatred begins to flower
For in destruction there's never a positive and unbeautiful is the end
When war becomes the answer and fiery responses is what we send.
