(Sylvester / Clarke)
I look to the east and I look to the west
Trying to find a place where there's rest
You know where I go, you know it's the same show
People turning their backs, not wanting to know

Look there son, you'll find hungry mouths
Saying please feed me well I'm only a child
All around you'll find fallow ground
But you can't plow a field with a hundred missiles

You know the score
You know it's war
Death and destruction
We gotta change it now
Lord only knows how
To turn it into more

Where have all the rainbows gone
Where where where
My, oh God, says he's seen better days
Where, where, where

Speak to me, Lord Speak to me, Lord
Come on down with Your fiery sword
Rid this place of all it's hate
Show Your face before it's too late

You know the score
You know it's war
Death and destruction
Death and destruction

Death and destruction
We gotta change it now
Lord only knows how
