  • Holy war
    Genocide
    Suicide
    Hate and cruelty...
    How can this be holy?
    If I had a heart I'd cry.

    These ancient tales...
    The good go to heaven
    And the wicked ones burn in hell...
    Ring the funeral bells!
    If I had a heart I'd cry.

    There's just too many people now
    Too little land
    Much too much desire
    You feel so feeble now
    It's so out of hand
    Big bombs and barbed wire
    We've set our lovely sky
    Our lovely sky
    On fire!

    There's just too many people now
    And too little land
    Too much rage and desire
    It makes you feel so feeble now
    It's so out of hand-
    Big bombs and barbed wire...
    Can't you see
    Our destiny?
    We are making this Earth
    Our funeral pyre!

    Holy Earth
    How can we heal you?
    We cover you like a blight...
    Strange birds of appetite...
    If I had a heart I'd cry.
    If I had a heart I'd cry.
    If I had a heart I'd cry.Writer/s: JONI MITCHELL
