Lyrics
it's a matter of opinion,a choice to choose
was the war worth winning more than the lives you would lose, revenge for terror,evil to foil, a fight for freedom or a thirsr for oil,
for innocents suffered,our own had to die, was the peace we recovered worth the tears that we cried? chorus
one day there'll be peace,hope and understanding,
wisdom and love,the powers we're commanding
repeat
was it worth all the stories,the white lies and spin,
convincing the people a war we must win,
like guns against arrows,or bombs against bows, superior weapons destroyed our foes,
but innocents suffered,our own had to die, was the peace we recovered worth the tears that we cried?
chorus
one day there'll be peace, hope and understanding,
wisdom and love, the powers we're commanding
repeat
