  • Please lay down your pistols and your rifles
    Please lay down your colours and your creeds
    Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
    Concentrate on what you ought to be

    Then lay down your bullshit and your protests
    Then lay down your governments of greed
    Take a look at what lies all around you
    Then pray God we can live in peace

    Everyone's a loner 'till he needs a helping hand
    Everyone is everybody else
    Everyone's a no-one 'till he wants to make a stand
    God alone knows how we will survive

    So please lay down your pistols and your rifles
    Please lay down your colors and your creeds
    Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
    Concentrate on what you ought to be

    Everyone's a loner 'till he needs a helping hand
    Everyone is everybody else
    Everyone's a no-one 'till he wants to make a stand
    God alone knows how we will survive Writer/s: JOHN LEES
