No war no greed
That would be something to see
I hope I live that long

No blood in the streets
Just a distant memory
The history books recount

Now were all free
Now were all free

No war no greed
That would be something to see
I hope I live that long

No want no need
The struggle to end poverty
Finally has been won

Now were all free
Now were all free

No war no greed
That would be something to see
I hope I live that long

Hold my constitution
And have the courage of heart and mind
To right what is wrong

Now were all free
Now were all free

But now you can't believe
What you're told
You can't believe what you hear
The speeches of the politicians
Ring untrue and insincere
You can't believe what you read
You can't believe what's said
They count the targets and the bombs
But do not count the dead
They do not count the dead

No war no greed
That would be something to see
I hope I live that long

Not lose my faith
In every word on the page
In the face of freedom

No war no greed
No war no greed
No war no greed
