LIFE IS SO PRECIOUS

They tell you the things your ears want to hear,
But the truth and the facts will not disappear.
For regardless of reason war is not the right way,
Regardless of what political leaders might say.

Countless in history is the sacrificed young men,
The innocent people and those we condemn.
The hate, the slaughter the revenge and the rage,
History is written in blood on every foul page.

Life is so precious yet we maim and we kill,
Still primitive in thought and primitive in will.
For when that day comes when there is no more war,
There won’t be anyone living on the Earth anymore
