10 000 Years (Peace Is Now) - Lyrics by Live


Lyrics
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 got 10,000 years

Devoted to nothing

But tomorrow and yesterday


If all of the ignorance in the world

Passes 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 separation 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


If all of the ignorance in the world

Passes a second ago

What would you say?

Who would you obey?
I am here to say that


Peace is now
