God don't let them 
go to war again 
all sides calling 
your name in vain 
3rd commandment offense 
vain and war is vain 
oh insane, insane 
acid burning bellies 
food burning poisons 
metals in the water 
drowning in oil 
who can survive 
when the flowers die 
when the children die 
no reason left 
when all is war 
killing millions 
orgasmically declaring 
"ours is the only way" 
"we have the only truth" 
truth of what??? 
where to go when dead? 
eternal damnation's fire? 
was there not fire enough 
in Hiroshima? 
what earthly father 
damns his children? 
what earthly mother 
sours her milk willfully? 
listen listen & remember 
"A child will lead them" 
we must follow 
they know the way 
thru the needle's eye 
& you & i 
must find our own child lost 
reach out our heart 
to the Unknown Deity 
undescribed by greed 
& work & pray 
pray & work 
for Mother Earth 
& please, o please 
don't let them go to war 
 no more, no more.
