WAR IS GONE

By Jim Belleau

(original version)

They fighting here, they fighting there
The oldest story from everywhere


It seem that it could never cease
Your war interferes with your peace
I will accept nothing but release
Prisoner of war don't you be
All them chains unlock with just one key

[CHORUS]
For I and I, You and You
Simple people and countries too
War needs you to live
So don't you give
Your mind to war
And it will be no more


This key I see I feel and know
Remark-ability!
This key you can see and feel and know
Remark-ability!
Some use their minds in the reverse
They hold on tight to what's perverse
Stiff-necked and proud of their
Intractability!

(Intentionally
disharmonious
stanza, - as war is.)
The weight of war seem like a ton
The heaviest thing under the sun
The truth I tell for all and one
You can change your Mind and here comes the fun


The weight it lifts, this a tremendous gift
The power of your Mind only you can refine
The day of war is passing now
Nation to nation, You and You
I'm here to stay, This Way How!

[CHORUS]

You listened to me all these years
My music has never left your ears
In all countries they listen to me
I achieved one goal toward unity

This next big step is the news I tell
The power it holds will de -stroy hell
War is bad everyone agrees
War is gone -could this be?
This step I say when you're ready to take
Will bring a new level to all who see

War is gone you just not see
How easily this could be
Hold my hand to take this step
The power of your Mind is Jah and I

War is gone we can succeed
For when it's yours no more where can it be?
War needs you to live
So don't you give
Your Mind to war and it will be no more

WAR IS GONE

(released version lyrics re-written by Maroghini)

CEASE FIRE, HOLD YOUR FIRE
THAT'S WHAT WE REQUIRE

FROM THE DAYS OF OLD
STORIES HAVE BEEN TOLD OF WARS IN EVERY GENERATION
BUT DON'T YOU FRET
AND LET'S NOT FORGET
IN OUR MINDS THERE IS A SOLUTION

PRISONERS OF WAR
THAT'S WHAT WE ARE
NATION FIGHTING AGAINST NATION
BUT IN OUR MINDS WE CAN FIND
FIND A SOLUTION
OH YES WE CAN

[CHORUS]
I AND I YOU AND YOU
SIMPLE PEOPLE AND COUNTRIES TOO
DESIRE PEACE AND WAR WILL CEASE
AND WE SHALL SING SING SING
WAR IS GONE
NEVER TO COME BACK AGAIN
WAR IS GONE
AND WE ALL CAN LIVE AS FRIENDS
THIS KEY YOU AND I CAN SEE AND FEEL AND KNOW


THE POWER OF THE MIND IS A TREMENDOUS GIFT
NO MATTER HOW HEAVY THE BURDEN IT WILL LIFT
SOME USE THEIR MINDS IN REVERSE
HOLDING ON TO WHAT'S PERVERSE
THE NEXT BIG STEP IS THE NEWS I TELL
THE POWER IT HOLDS WILL DE-STROY HELL
AND BRING A NEW LEVEL TO ALL WHO SEEK
BREAKING THE CHAINS TO SET US FREE

[CHORUS]
