I speak for a man who gave for this land
took a bullet in the back for his pay
spilled his blood in the dirt and the dust
and he's come back to say

That what he has seen is hard to believe
and it does no good just to pray
he asks of us to stand, and we must
end this war today

With his mind he's saying, no more
With his heart he's saying, no more
With his life he's saying, no more war

With his eyes he's saying, no more
With his body he's saying, no more
With his body he's saying, no more war

Nothing's too good for a Veteran
yeh, this is what they say
so nothing is what they will get
in this new American way

The lies that were told to get us to go
were criminal, let us be straight
let's get to the point where our voices are heard
behind the White House gate

With our minds we're saying, no more
With our hearts we're saying, no more
With our lives we're saying, no more war

With our eyes we're saying, no more
With our bodies we're saying, no more
With our voices we're saying, no more war

No more innocents dying
No more terrorizing
No more eulogizing
No more evangelizing
No more Presidents lying

No more War.

    General Commentsong written based on Ed's conversations with Thomas Young, a soldier who singed up the day after 9/11. he thought he was going to afghanistan but ended up in Iraq. he was paralyzed from the chest down in combat and is now an anti-war campaigner. A film called "Body Of War" has been released telling his story.

    General Commentthis is a great protest song...its straight to the point saying "No More War" directly...ed writes great protest songs...i must say that the first chorus it says body twice...the second body should be voice...just thought ide point that out
