Lyrics

What do we want?
Peace!
When do we want it?
Now!
What do we want?
Peace!
When do we want it?
Now!

I cranked up my radio to find out what's going on.
(And it's bad news)
I heard the man say that every hour of the day we're going to drop 500 bombs.
(It's giving me the blues.)
I got a sick feeling and I started to cry.
Threw my hands up to the sky,
Screaming "Why oh why oh why?"

What do we want?
Peace!
When do we want it?
Now!
What do we want?
Peace!
When do we want it?
Now!

The military salesman he says "Peace doesn't pay".
(He's had a slow day)
In search of enemies he calls the CIA.
(And what do they say?)
One of our puppets just aint towing the line.
So now it's killing time.
What an international crime.

Forget about your Hollywood movie scenes,
Misery and mass murder are what war always means.
They say the enemy don't do like we do,
But how would you like it if the bomb fell next to you?
Woah, oh, no no no!

What do we want?
Peace!
When do we want it?
Now!
What do we want?
Peace!
When do we want it?
Now!

They say the war will bring stability (Now that's a lie)
And help establish our credibility (As many people die)
Now let me give you a rough translation
Uncle Sam rules by death and devastation.
Using fear to achieve world domination.

(SPOKEN)
They're trying to drown us in an ocean of lies,
But I'm spinning you the truth although each time I do tears fill up my eyes
I know it's painful to listen to the tales I told ya
That's why it's finally time to end the story of the universal soldier
The warmakers want total control, but the path of most resistance is the road to liberate your soul
Now listen up and hear what I say:
The leaders are going to follow when the people lead the way.

So call up your congressman and the president too.
(Confront the government)
They work for us we've got to tell them what to do.
(Who do they represent?)
We're not going to let them start a nuclear shower.
Because the people of the world are the one true superpower.

Yeah, the people of the world are the one true superpower.
Yeah, the people of the world are the one true superpower.
Yeah, the people of the world are the one true superpower.
Yeah, the people of the world are the one true superpower.
