No one will win the war
See, families only die
And birds won't soar the sky
And there'll be no sun to shine
No country wins a war
The grass won't grow the same
The moon won't shine at night
And there's a losing fight
Nobody wins a war

Now what would you do, what would you say
If you heard a bomb was headed your way?
Where would you go, what would you bring
If you heard a bomb was headed your way?
Now what would you do, what would you say
If you heard a rocket was headed your way?
Where would you go, what would you bring?

No soldier wins a war
See, soldiers only die
And mamas only cry
Just for a conscious flag to fly, that's why
Nobody wins a war
No war is worth your life
See, that's a priceless pride
No war is worth your blood
Nobody wins a war

Now what would you do, what would you say
If you heard a bomb was headed your way?
Where would you go, what would you bring
If you heard a bomb was headed your way?
Now what would you do, what would you say
If you heard a rocket was headed your way?
Where would you go, what would you bring?
Tell me, who would you pray to?
Now what would you do, what would you say
If you heard a bomb was headed your way?
Where would you go, what would you bring
If you heard a bomb was headed your way?
Now what would you do, what would you say
If you heard a rocket was headed your way?
Where would you go, what would you bring?
No one wins a war

No one wins a war, no one wins
No one wins a war
No one wins a war, no one wins
No one wins a war
No one wins a war, no one wins
No one wins a war
No one wins a war, no one wins
No one wins a war
Nobody wins a war
Nobody wins a war

We the people speak, speak
We want to be free of this sick bureaucracy
No more death tolls with our morning coffee
Oh, government, you have lost your feeling for life
It is war that you reap
But the loss is too great and the pain is too deep
The scars do not heal
Your system is thoughtless and your vision is weak
Your actions are hurtful
You never find what you seek
You make the sky a storm
You destroy the earth, make possibilities bleak
Your lies are your destruction
Your justice stinks
Your pride is maniacal
You are the bearer of grief
Your win is shallow
Your truth is oblique
Your patriotism is garbage
It rots and it reeks of death in the wind
The foul stench of men basking in their cruelty
Rejoicing in their sin
You give up and give over so easily to the darker side
Because of your pride
You risk all of humanity
You send my children to murder human beings
Families they do not yet know
People they have never seen
You send my children to war
Without exasperating dialogue to get to the meat
An equal understanding, as if there isn't even a possibility for peace
But there is always a possibility for peace
As un-perfect as we are, we should in all ways reach deep
Deep down in our beings
Oh, this wicked, wicked system of things
As our grandmothers say
Will soon be no more
Will soon be no more
Because nobody no one ever wins a war
