Greater Good

Here we are, unfathomable miracles of existence

Killing each other in another military offence
Squabbling over territory like all the dumb beasts
Our weapons cooking up a storm for the Reaper’s feast

The beauty of life is forgotten for greed
To have it all is such an ill need
If we shared everything then nobody would fight
Work together and share our insights

For the greater good of all it’s time to
Lay down the instruments of war
Erect a collective initiative
Even peace is not worth fighting for

For millennia fighting made our people more strong
But times have changed so much, today it’s only wrong
The age of reason must come in and prevail
It’s time to free ourselves from our own violent jail

The beauty of life is forgotten for greed
To have it all is such an ill need
If we shared everything then nobody would fight
Work together and share our insights

For the greater good of all it’s time to
Lay down the instruments of war
Erect a collective initiative
Even peace is not worth fighting for

We are ailing of a spiritual disease
We must heal together to set the darkness free
Mother Earth is dying so let us not forget
Or our kids will be the ones who live to regret

  1. "Mother Earth is dying so let us not forget
    Or our kids will be the ones who live to regret" If everybody thinks this atleast once in his lifetime, half of the fights from this world would vanish...
