Go ahead and march if you want to
But you'd better be sure that it's right
So, strap on the breastplate of righteousness now
And consider the cause of your fight
If you make your next move with eyes closed and blind
Then you take to the battle on the side we despise
In the ranks of a dark force and not as an army of light

There's a line in the sand of the desert
Which no one has yet to ever cross
So, before you mount up and descend on the foe
Please, stop and consider the cost
Cause there's than we see that stands to be lost
Like the weight of the death of just one albatross
As it hangs like a sword, over your head and questions your cause

We're supposed to be free
But I don't know what to believe
Cause every image I see
Is of people destroying each other, shamelessly
Like the world was a body
And war was the cancer it feeds

But you tell us it's in our best interest
To strike back before it's too late
Our country may suffer another attack
Undefended, if we hesitate
But if we're to believe that our country's so great
Then, beware, lest an unjust war should seal our fate
As an impatient nation whose strength is mistaken for hate

I watched it on my television
The night sky, lit up with your bombs
It's as if you desired the darkness to hide
The shame, soon revealed by the dawn
And it seems a disgrace to disturb nature's calm
So, I'll stand by your flag if it's peace that you want
But don't try to tell me a war is a giving of alms

We're supposed to be free
But I don't know what to believe
Cause every image I see
Is of people destroying each other, shamelessly
Like the world was a body
And war was the cancer it feeds

We're supposed to be free
I don't know what to believe
Cause every image I see
Is anger and fire and hell's fury, unleashed
On a world which delights in making itself bleed
And the need for a sound resolution of peace
Is, indeed, more important than what was foreseen
Now, security seems so far out of reach
Is when we must draw close and resolve to be free

We're supposed to be free
But I don't know what to believe
Cause every image I see
Is of people destroying each other, shamelessly
Like the world was a body
And war was the cancer it feeds

We're supposed to be free
But I don't know what to believe
Cause every image I see
Is of people destroying each other, shamelessly
Like the world was a body
And war was the cancer it feeds
Like the world was a body
And war was the cancer it feeds
