Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

    God created us - we created religions. Now we are using the differences in the religions we created as an excuse to kill one another and destroy god's creation, us. Imaging if we went to bed tonight and woke up tomorrow morning with no memories of or hate against others because of their different religions!

    I think the meaning of this song is tell the world that we can make it better, we only have to believe in this . So is important that a famous person like John Lennon , has a song with this message.

    It's sad how all of you think this is for a pure anarchy or communist state
    But think. With no heaven or hell? What's the worry if you do something wrong?
    No countries no religion. So much less fighting and disagreement.
    No possession or greed? He's right, it's impossible. Humans feed off greed
    That's our nature. But what if we could all just relax and be a little more lenient

    If we try we can be as one. And this is John Lennon with the Plastic Ono band not the Beatles.

    i think it's about having everyone forget everything that seperates us and just come together and live in peace, with no seperations or groups of any kind.

    & Isn't this a John Lennon song? not the beatles
