I SEE IT IN HER TEARFUL EYES
I SEE IT IN HER WAR-TORN FACE
I HEAR IT IN HER CHILDRENS’ CRIES
MAMA, CAN’T WE GO TO SOMEPLACE SAFE?

I SEE THE BOMBS FALLING FROM THE SKY
I HEAR IT EVERY NIGHT ON THE NEWS
I CAN’T IMAGINE THE REASON WHY
THIS IS THE PATH OF DESTRUCTION WE CHOOSE

HAVEN’T WE HAD ENOUGH BLOOD ON OUR HANDS?
HAVEN’T WE SEEN ENOUGH SUFFERING?
HAVEN’T WE GONE DOWN THE WRONG ROAD
LONG ENOUGH?
DON’T OUR CHILDREN DESERVE A WORLD FULL OF LOVE?

I SEE IT IN MUSLIM EYES
I HEAR AMERICAN VOICES TOO
WE’RE ALL SO SICK OF THE HATRED AND LIES
LET’S GET TOGETHER AND TRY SOMETHING NEW

WHATEVER NAME YOU USE FOR GOD
ALLAH, YAHWEH, OR SPIRIT TOO
WE ALL PRAY TO THE VERY SAME GOD
AND GOD LOVES MUSLIM, CHRISTIAN AND JEW

ANOTHER WAR OR TWO, THERE’LL BE NO MORE TO DO
EXCEPT TO WALK THROUGH THE RUIN
NO MORE HUMANITY, NO MORE WORLD TO SEE
THERE’LL BE NO HOPE FOR US SOON

GIVE ME A CHANCE TO PLEAD TO MY OWN
OUR SAVIOR TAUGHT US FORGIVENESS AND PEACE
JESUS CHRIST REFUSED TO TAKE UP A STONE
HE GAVE HIS LIFE SO THAT HATRED MAY CEASE

I SEE IT IN HER TEARFUL EYES
I SEE IT IN HER WAR-TORN FACE
I HEAR IT IN HER CHILDRENS’ CRIES
MAMA, CAN’T WE GO TO SOMEPLACE SAFE?

HAVEN’T WE HAD ENOUGH BLOOD ON OUR HANDS?
HAVEN’T WE SEEN ENOUGH SUFFERING?
HAVEN’T WE GONE DOWN THE WRONG ROAD
LONG ENOUGH?
DON’T OUR CHILDREN DESERVE A WORLD FULL OF LOVE?

HAVEN’T WE HAD ENOUGH BLOOD ON OUR HANDS?
HAVEN’T WE SEEN ENOUGH SUFFERING?
HAVEN’T WE GONE DOWN THE WRONG ROAD
LONG ENOUGH?
DON’T OUR CHILDREN DESERVE A WORLD FULL OF LOVE?
FULL OF LOVE? LOVE? LOVE?
OO-OH, OH-HOO-OH, OH-WOE-OH
