  • Each nation used to provide its country with security
    with factories providing arms for their country
    Now multinational companies compete in the arms trade
    to serve any customer, maximizing the money to be made

    So just as farms compete to provide fruit for other countries
    so people can live to enjoy the taste of nature
    National warehouses compete to provide arms around the world
    to aid death
    and all hell unfolds.

    Our gracious queen
    should grasp her crown
    and take a good fucking swing at Blair and Brown
    for leading her countries to illegal warfare
    and trying to pass it off that we're doing 'cause we care.

    Now prudence of wars are a redemptive cause
    I've never heard such nonsense under international laws
    We think we have the right to enforce democracy
    when we're weakening ours everyday
    What hypocrisy.

    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this
    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this

    Fuck man
    I just woke up to a land where killing is part of every day
    and every mind in this intelligent species
    is then blinded into the battlefield
    like it's natural for us to break instead of build

    Unities intrinsic the only cause worth fighting for,
    all religions, colours and creeds

    Now we are the world and we are the people
    We are the world and we are the people
    and we will be heard.

    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this
    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this

    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this
    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this

    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this
    We'll be together against this
    We'll be forever against this Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
