10,000 years (peace is now)

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 ten thousand years devoted to nothing but tomorrow and yesterday / ten thousand years

if all of the ignorance in the world / passed a second ago / what would you say? / and who would you obey?

i am here to say that peace is now

mr. president, i pardon you for all your crimes / for they are just as much mine / for selfishness and separation have led me to believe that the world is not my problem / i am the world / and you are the world / and i, yes i, am the world / and you are the world

if all of the ignorance in the world / passed a second ago / what would you say? / and who would you obey now?

i am here to say that peace is now . . . peace must be now. 

peace is now

10, 000 years (peace is now), live

The world IS our problem.

WE are the world.
