  • I'm living with war everyday
    I'm living with war in my heart everyday
    I'm living with war right now

    And when the dawn breaks
    I see my fellow man
    And on the flat-screen
    We kill and we're killed again
    And when the night falls
    I pray for peace
    Try to remember peace (visualize)

    I join the multitudes
    I raise my hand in peace
    I never bow to the laws
    Of the thought police
    I take a holy vow
    To never kill again
    To never kill again

    I'm living with war in my heart
    I'm living with war in my heart and my mind
    I'm living with war right now

    Don't take no tidal wave
    Don't take no mass grave
    Don't take no smokin' gun
    To show how the west was won
    But when the curtain falls
    I pray for peace
    Try to remember peace (visualize)

    In the crowded streets
    In the big hotels
    In the mosques
    And the doors of the old museum
    I take a holy vow
    To never kill again
    Try to remember peace

    The rocket's red glare
    Bombs bursting in air
    Give proof through the night
    That our flag is still there

    I'm living with war everyday
    I'm living with war in my heart everyday
    I'm living with war right now
    I'm living with war right now
    I'm living with war in my heart everyday
    I'm living with war right now Writer/s: NEIL YOUNG
