A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O. Douglas

Bomb the World - Spearhead

Bomb the World
Michael Franti & Spearhead

Please tell me the reason
behind the colors that you fly.
Love just one nation
and the whole world we divide.
You say you're, "sorry"
You say, "there is no other choice"
- but God bless the people - them
who cannot raise their voice

(chorus)

We can chase down all our enemies,
bring them to their knees.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.
Whoa we may even find a solution
to hunger and disease.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.

Violence brings one thing;
more more of the same,
military madness,
the smell of flesh and burning pain.
So I sing out to the masses;
stand up if you're still sane!
To all of us gone crazy;
I sing this one refrain,

(chorus)

We can chase down all our enemies,
bring them to their knees.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.
Whoa we may even find a solution
to hunger and disease.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.


And I sing, power to the peaceful
love to the people y'all.
Power to the peaceful
love to the people y'all.

Bomb the World
(Armageddon version)

I don't understand the whole reason why
You tellin' us all that we need to unify
Rally round the flag
And beat the drums of war
Sing the same old songs
Ya know we heard 'em all before
You tellin' me it's unpatriotic
But i call it what i see it
When I see it's idiotic
The tears of one mother
Are the same as any other
Drop food on the kids
While you're murderin' their fathers
But don't bother to show it on CNN
Brothers and sisters don't believe them
It's not a war against evil
It's really just revenge
Engaged on the poorest by the same rich men
Fight terrorists wherever they be found
But why you not bombing tim mcveigh's hometown
You can say what you want propaganda television
But all bombing is terrorism

We can chase down all our enemies,
bring them to their knees.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.
Whoa we may even find a solution
to hunger and disease.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace..

911
Fire in the skies
Many people died
And no one even really knows why
They tellin' lies of division and fear
We yelled and cried
No one listened for years
But like, "who put us here?"
And who's responsible?
Well, there's no debatin'
Cause if they ask me i say
It's big corporations
World trade organization
Tri-lateral action
International sanctions, satan
Seems like it'll be an endless price tag
Of wars tremendous
And most disturbingly
The death toll is so horrendous
So i send this to those
Who say they defend us
Send us into harm's way
We should all make a rememberence that
This is bigger than terrorism
Blood is blood is blood and um
Love is true vision
Who will listen?
How many songs it takes for you to see
You can bomb the world to pieces
You can't bomb it into peace

We can chase down all our enemies,
bring them to their knees.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.
Whoa we may even find a solution
to hunger and disease.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.

Power to the peaceful
And I say, love to the people y'all
Power to the peaceful
And I say, love to the people y'all

We can chase down all our enemies,
bring them to their knees.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.
Whoa we may even find a solution
to hunger and disease.
We can bomb the world to pieces,
but we can't bomb it into peace.

"Bombing the world into peace" - great paraphrase of that well thought out doctrine of "preemptive war..." I mean, logically, what could be a better way to have a peaceful planet than to start wars.

History will show that the greatness of Bush Inc. and Co. resided in its intellect as well as moral fiber.

Great montage. Where'd all the pics come from?

Much love (and peace) to you,

Beav'

I see the path of peace is long journey...Are we at the beggining of the road or at least somewhere just near that road

I echo that last sentiment...one day of peace! Then another....and another.
