The world is burning down
Can't you smell the smoke in the air?
War, disease and famine
This demon, she is everywhere

Poets and preachers and politicians
They've all had their say
And we've got 10,000 years
Devoted to nothing
But tommorow and yesterday

If all of the ignorance in the world
Passed a second ago
What would you say?
Who would you obey?
I am here to say that

Peace is now

Mr. president?
I hereby pardon you of all your crimes
For they are just as much mine

Selfishness and seperation have led me
To believe that the world is not my problem
The world is not my problem
I am the world
And you are the world

Peace is now
