We used to live in a better world
 Where sky and water were free
We point the finger 
We point the gun
Is that the way it should be?

We rape the land
And we tear the skin
Burn the blood in the stone 
To fuel the fire of a selfish mind
Do you want to live here alone?

[Chorus]
Lay down your arms - surrender 
You know you'll never get out of here
Lay down your arms - remember 
No force - you'd better lay down your gun

Such are the sins of humanity 
Dark is the air that we breathe 
A war to hide in society 
Don't close your eyes to deceive 

Too many promises 
Too may tears  Where does the future lie
If we burn away the years 

We can make this a better world
 Where sky and water are free
So give the hand without the gun
That's the way it will be

[Chorus]
