Each nation used to provide its country with security
with factories providing arms for their country
Now multinational companies compete in the arms trade
to serve any customer, maximizing the money to be made

So just as farms compete to provide fruit for other countries
so people can live to enjoy the taste of nature
National warehouses compete to provide arms around the world
to aid death
and all hell unfolds.

Our gracious queen
should grasp her crown
and take a good fucking swing at Blair and Brown
for leading her countries to illegal warfare
and trying to pass it off that we're doing 'cause we care.

Now prudence of wars are a redemptive cause
I've never heard such nonsense under international laws
We think we have the right to enforce democracy
when we're weakening ours everyday
What hypocrisy.

We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this
We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this

Fuck man
I just woke up to a land where killing is part of every day
and every mind in this intelligent species
is then blinded into the battlefield
like it's natural for us to break instead of build

Unities intrinsic the only cause worth fighting for,
all religions, colours and creeds

Now we are the world and we are the people
We are the world and we are the people
and we will be heard.

We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this
We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this

We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this
We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this

We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this
We'll be together against this
We'll be forever against this
