(keith emerson/greg lake)

In this our life on earth
Another dawn we face
Is this the moment of truth
For the whole human race
Is that the last man down
Is that the last life laid to waste
Can we find in our hearts
Each and every dream we've misplaced
Before heaven cries tears
On the mountain we climb

Farewell to arms
Rest in peace
May the rain of freedom be released
Farewell to arms
We just can't walk away
We're all sharing this earth at the end of the day

So when the cold wind bites
And the mad dogs speak
However dark is your night
Just keep turning your cheek
'cause when the last shot's fired
It is then the world will be free
And still we are asking
Just how long will it be
Though we're blown by the crosswinds
We stand like a tree

Farewell to arms
Rest in peace
May the rain of freedom be released
Farewell to arms
We just can't walk away
We're all sharing this earth at the end of the day

Down this road we've wandered for so many years
With every step we take
We can tear down all frontiers
Make no mistake

Farewell to arms
Rest in peace
May the rain of freedom be released
