There’s so many things going on in the world
Babies dying
Mothers crying
How much oil is one human life worth
And what ever happened to peace on earth

We believe everything that they tell us
They’re gonna’ kill us
So we gotta’ kill them first
But I remember a commandment
Thou shall not kill
How much is that soldier’s life worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

(Bridge)
And the bewildered herd is still believing
Everything we’ve been told from our birth
Hell they won’t lie to me
Not on my own damn TV
But how much is a liar’s word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

So I guess it’s just
Do unto others before they do it to you
Let’s just kill em’ all and let God sort em’ out
Is this what God wants us to do

(Repeat Bridge)
And the bewildered herd is still believing
Everything we’ve been told from our birth
Hell they won’t lie to me
Not on my own damn TV
But how much is a liar’s word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

Now you probably won’t hear this on your radio
Probably not on your local TV
But if there’s a time, and if you’re ever so inclined
You can always hear it from me
How much is one picker’s word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth

But don’t confuse caring for weakness
You can’t put that label on me
The truth is my weapon of mass protection
And I believe truth sets you free

(Bridge)
And the bewildered herd is still believing
Everything we’ve been told from our birth
Hell they won’t lie to me
Not on my own damn TV
But how much is a liar’s word worth
And whatever happened to peace on earth
Willie Nelson

I remember that song. I have a long list of protest songs I love to sing to also. No body does it like Willy.

thanks Dandelion--humans+peace don't mix. Never have+never will such is our appalling stock unfortunately.

It turns out that conflict is far more profitable for the 1%, those who control the economy, our media, our governments and, far too often, in complicity with the major religions of the planet. Changing that requires a ground up revolution. Those how have tried to create such change have always been murdered. From the beginnings of recorded history to this very day. That's what happened. Will happen until the governed create and sustain a civilization in which no one will have anything that comes at a cost to another. We may have to wait a while. Longer.

Willie Nelson's version of "The harder they come" is great (I think so anyway) It's "My video" BTW...

Wait....Mother Earth can wait.....I think we'll do ourselves in at some point. As you say Gene, historically it does not look too promising.

Pride, hate, greed and arrogance plus deadly technology makes a terrible combination; yet there are so many sane and peaceful people, too. Some days hope seems so far away. As Willie points out, we must wake up, and not behave like sheep, if this Earth as we know it is to stand a chance. Thanks for posting this, Dandelion.

One cannot achieve peace by behaving aggressively. The United States believes in brute force and arrogance, as does the British Empire.
