Everything we do on a personal scale
Taking 'we' to mean everyone who ever existed
Is the basis for everything wrong in this world
And of course everything are right as well
But the list of wrongs that offend the soul
Like the chance of being killed before we get old
Is far far longer than the list of right, yeah

Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop the war
But hating other people might start some more

You blame the politicians
For making all the wrong decisions
Which are just the same as ours
But we haven't got that power
That enforced domination
So we take out our frustration
On the weaker opposition
Reinforce our egotism
In our smale scale wars
On the disco floors
Against the man next door

Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop the war
But hating other people might start some more

You can blame the politicians - Small scale wars
You blame the television - Small scale wars
You can blame your education - Small scale wars
Cost of living and inflation - Small scale wars

But the basis for everything wrong in this world
Is the way that people behave
When you scorn the system but fight each other
You're behaving exactly the same
If you thought a bit more before starting the war
Then maybe the structure would change
Change! Sooner or later

Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop the war
But hating other people might start some more
Falling in love won't stop the war
Falling in love won't stop their war
But hating other people might start some more
