Each nation used to provide it's country with security
With factories providing arms for their country

Now multi-national companies compete in the arms trade,
To serve any customer maximizing the money to be made

So just as farms compete to provide fruit for other countries,
So people can live to enjoy the taste of nature
National warehouses compete to provide arms around the world
To aid death and all hell unfurled.

Our gracious queen should grasp her crown
And take a good fucking swing at Blair and Brown
For leading her country into illegal warfare
And tryna pass it off that we're doing it because we care
'Now preemptive wars are a redemptive cause.'
I've never heard such nonsense under international laws

We think we have the right to enforce 'democracy'
When we're weakening ours everyday; what hypocrisy.

Fuck man
I just woke up to a land where killing is a part of everyday
And every mind of this intelligent species
Is led blinded into the battlefield
Like it's natural to break instead of build

Unity's intrinsic, the only cause worth fighting for
All religions colours and creeds

Now we are the world and we are the people
We are the world and we are the people
And we will be heard...

We'll be forever against this
We'll be together against this
