The world is burning down
Can't you smell the smoke in the air?
War, disease, and famine
This demon, she is everywhere
.
Poets and preachers and politicians
They've all had their say
And we got 10,000 years
Devoted to nothing
But tomorrow and yesterday
.
If all of the ignorance in the world
Passes a second ago
What would you say?
Who would you obey?
I am here to say that
.
Peace is now
.
Mr. President
I hereby pardon you of all your crimes
For they are just as much mine
.
Selfishness and separation have led me
To believe that the world is not my problem
The world is not my problem
I am the world
And you are the world
.
If all of the ignorance in the world
Passes a second ago
What would you say?
Who would you obey?
I am here to say that
.
Peace is now
