John Lennon – Imagine lyrics

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

    No heaven no hell - It's here and now. Living for today
    No countries (governments) no relegion. Nothing to kill or die for - we could actually live in peace
    No possesions no greed - no more keeping up with the Jones. We can help our fellow man, rather than put ourselves above them because of the how much we have.
    This is not communism. You need a government to take care of you.
    This is an ideal of people living with people and accepting all people as equals.
    Since we live our lives in our minds, this is all very do able. All we have to do is think it so.

    A very creative and "imaginative" song. Imagination has power to motivate and inspire, but not to, in itself, change reality. If someone had the incredible power to build a Utopian society, would he need to force people into compliance, or maybe eliminate unbelievers? Then where's freedom? Problem unsolved. There is a real answer to the problems of war, oppression, cruelty, prejudice, greed. More thoughts at Cheers, friends.
