Melissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter and activist. more »

A mother was grieving her loss
Her soldier the ultimate cost
She went to the man
Who has been told he's a king
Waited outside of his compound
To ask him a few things

Ya-I-ya-a-wayy

She said "for what noble cause
Did my son have to die?
Tell me where are there weapons?
Why did you have to lie?"

Imagine that

A lieutenant in the army
In his heart and his soul he believes
In the land of the free
And the home of the brave
Now he's standing on trial
For he will not behave
As they wish

Ya-I-ya-a-wayy

He said "I believe the constitution
To defend it and uphold
I will not fight your war for profit
No sir I will not go"

Imagine that

A scientist and his machine
The smallest of life he has seen
Inside matter inside atoms
As far as you can go
He saw the strings of life that vibrate
With the universal flow

Ya-I-ya-a-wayy

He said "I have seen the spirit
And all its creation
Its in each and every thought
And all our intentions"

Imagine that
Imagine that
Imagine that
Imagine that
