Declaring Peace - Lyrics by Chumbawamba


Lyrics

Whisper the words of wisdom no more
Speak the words of wisdom no more
Shout the words of wisdom no more
The governments of the world agree
That people need bombs and banks and barriers
Harriers, tanks, and aircraft carriers to carry us to war
To drop it at my front door
But if no one pulled a trigger then no one would get shot
If no one made the bombs, no one would get blown up
If nobody believed in stinking countries
There wouldn't be any territories to fight over
If nobody held money as sacred
There'd be food for all, not just those who can't afford it
And if nobody voted for a government
They wouldn't have the right to make people fight
But first they treat us like we're nobody, no one
Then it's "join britain's fight, be someone--bomb someone"
But dead we're no more than dust on the floor
Of the next generation
Who are marching as to war
But no more war, we won't go away
'cause no more war is something we've got to say
No more war, we can try to make the fighting cease
No more war, advertise for peace
No more war, i know it's easier said than done
But we can make a start by declaring peace
No more war, look i know it's easier said than done
But we can make a start by declaring peace
By declaring peace
Just remember in 1982 when the falklands war was happening
The new musical express didn't say a word about it
