White People for Peace

East and west could not agree
So their generals gave a call and gathered troops at the border
With guns at ready, drawn and aimed
Each side was praying to a God to bless them with strength and courage

And it was in his name artillery lit the sky on fire
The people sang protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun
But the battle raged on

Sirens filled the air, and the ground shook with war
Civilian casualties has been a cost that was predetermined
When interviewed for report, victims pleaded in frustration
Their claim, that this was a war without reason

And bureaucrats engaged in debate to try and reach a resolution
The people sang protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun
But the battle raged on

Well, the broadcast, like their prayers, went unanswered and ignored
God, like the rest of the world, just watched in silence
There was purpose to be served, there was fortunes to be earned
Before a peace could be called to stop the fighting

They sang protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun
But the battle raged on
