On battlelines they fire bullets
And I don’t know why they do it
‘Cos I can’t see what has ever been gained
It seems to me through all this fighting
That more’s achieved by words and writing
Than any bullet fired through war or in rage

So what if we believe it’s all magical?
If it was up to me, watch the mighty fall
We would all stand back and just laugh at war

I understand, though I don’t like it
That we were made and built for fighting
But can’t we put those tanks and bullets away?

(x2) So what if we believe it’s all magical?
If it was up to me, watch the mighty fall
We would all stand back and just laugh at war

For if we need to express our anger well
We can shout, but to talk’s much better
Than taking all control and blowing away

So what if we believe it’s all magical?
If it was up to me, watch the mighty fall
We would all stand back and just laugh at war

On battlelines they fire bullets
On battlelines they fire bullets
