When the guns have all been fired
And the ammunition's gone
And the corpses lie in bloody pools
To wait the break of dawn
There will be no mound of earth left
Which to raise your flag upon
When the guns have all been fired
And the ammunition's gone

When the bombs have all been dropped
And the cities all are dust
And the earth has just been ravaged
By the rich man's power lust
There will be no government left
In which to place your trust
When the bombs have all been dropped
And the cities all are dust

When the mines have all been tripped
And the people all have died
And the mothers all are dead
Lying in the tears they cried
There will be no one to take the blame
No punishment applied
When the mines have all been tripped
And the people all have died

When the wars are finally over
And the damage has been done
And the mushroom clouds have darkened out
The lifeblood of the sun
There will be no fucking countries
There will be no fucking one
When the wars are finally over
And the damage has been done
