"Bomb the World" as written by Michael Franti, Carl Rogers Young and Woodrowe Jr. Farguhson....
please tell me the reason
behind the colors that you fly
love just one nation
and the whole world we divide
you say you're "sorry"
say, "there is no other choice"
but God bless the people them
who cannot raise their voice

(chorus)

we can chase down all our enemies
bring them to their knees
we can bomb the world to pieces
but we can't bomb it into peace
whoa we me even find a solution
to hunger and disease
we can bomb the world to pieces
but we can't bomb it into peace

violence brings one thing
more more of the same
military madness
the smell of flesh and burning pain
so I sing out to the masses
stand up if you're still sane !
to all of us gone crazy
I sing this one refrain

(chorus)

and I sing power to the peaceful
love to the people y'all
power to the peaceful
love to the people y'all

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG, PERIOD.
    Every word of every line and every guitar strum and drum line is so amazing, I can't get over it. This song, and "Oh My God" were the two songs that got me hooked.

    General CommentActually stealing one would be fine, but steal it from your local best buy, not your local independent record store!! If you do steal one make sure you support michael franti and spearhead by buying their merch or checking them out on tour!! Steal from the corporations not the artists!!
