Sway

Thank God the soldiers are back
I don’t want to hear any more soldiers attacked
It’s time to open a new chapter
Click, click everybody pose then a flash
The war’s over it's all over, hugs n’kisses all over
I know the problem ain’t solved yet
But after the track we’ll be getting more closer

Ali

350 million dollars a day
A debt that are kids are going to have to repay
And the problem it isn’t really going away
It’s a crime, and a waste, what a shame

Don’t do that in my name
You don’t have my support
To play out your mindless war games
With the weapons that we bought
Now there’s a thought

Should we continue to contribute
To a cause that is obscene
You know our taxes are financing
This murdering machine
You know what I mean

Chorus

And the many lives that are taken away
We all gotta live with that from day to day
And the problem will never ever go away
It’s a crime, and a waste, what a shame

Sway

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
So if you ain’t got a plan and you’re thinking that crime can keep you fly
Don’t think you ain’t gotta land
If you get caught you’ll go to court
Then you’ll be living a long way from fam‘
You’ll be going on a long trip, come back to find out you ain’t got a town

Ali

So if you must vote for people
Who are hell bent on making war
Then don’t you be surprised when
They come knocking at your door to even score

Chorus 2x

The many lives that are taken away
We all gotta live with that from day to day
And the problem will never ever go away
It’s a crime, and a waste, what a shame

Sway

Everybody wanna be an mc, nobody wanna be an mp
Everybody wants to be a star, nobody wanna be the md
Everybody wants to be a fat cat
Nobody wants to be a civilian

Aim high and by the time you’ll be 40
You’ll be sitting on a million

As the world keeps spinning on it's axis
Governments keep all the taxes
They buy more guns than anyone
But they’re always trying to blame it on the rappers
Going to war is a crime, and I believe the culprits should get, get time

But most of the politcans ain’t working, they’re too busy spinning on red
Red wine
