"Hearts on Fire" as written by James Douglas Vallance and Bryan Adams....
Shattered lives and broken worlds
Pieces of life scattered all around
The art of politicians spread their
Canvas all over town
Thick lines of red
All the lies and promises
The images won't leave their minds
The witnesses can't leave it all behind

Hearts on fire burning hot
Searching for more blood to feed them
With their desire they'd rather not look
For peace while their hatred's breeding

Destroy! Rebuild!
It won't bring it back
All the life we've killed!

Back through time in and out of days
Fragmented lives seem to waste away
The monsters have once again made their mark
They paint with thick lines of red
All the lies and promises
The images won't leave their mind
The witnesses can't leave it all behind

Hearts on fire burning hot
Searching for more blood to feed them
With their desire they'd rather not look
For peace while their hatred's breeding
And this will never end until their weapons melt
And we will never see or fell what they felt

(It is the people's unlimited responsibility to choose and to act in accordance with that which is helpful to all living things! How much more so must this be the case for our leaders?)

We've got the numbers but we're running out of time
One voice united we echo through these lines
We've got the numbers
Running out of time

Free at last is what we saw
But tonight we had it all
Free at last is what we saw
But tonight we had it all

Destroy! Rebuild!
It won't bring it back
All the life we've killed!

Destroy! Rebuild!
All the life we've killed!
