Word We Don’t Need

The Ultimate Dream.  An anti-war song lyric by Vince.  Written in 1994 [in 20 minutes]

We are heading for a new age.
A time long overdue.
A dream for all our fathers.
And now it’s coming true.

Our forebears gave us hope.
We’ve taken their ideas.
We’ll see it lasts forever.
And live in peace for years.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

Together in our small world.
We’ve learnt to get on well.
It’s heaven on this planet.
We’ve eliminated hell.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

We can’t forget the old days.
That’s the secret of success.
To lose what we have built up.
Would leave us in a mess.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

With no more hunger left to feed.
With no more victims left to bleed.
With no more use for wanton greed.
War is a word that we don’t need.

War is a word that we don’t need.
(to fade)
