what are we fighting for lyrics – tyrone wells

people get ready
there’s something in the air
creeping in slow so we don’t even notice
brothers and sisters beware

people get ready
open up your eyes
hatred and violence, millions fall silent
we don’t even hear their cries

it’s time to love one another, we’re sisters and brothers
what are we fighting for?
too many backs that are breaking, lives being taken
what are we killing for?
i think it’s time for forgiveness, to rise up and end this
what are we waiting for?
love teach us the way, to overcome hate
and weapons of war

people get ready
what’s your loaded gun?
silent indifference
hunger for vengeance
or words from a wicked tongue

people get ready
only you can choose
what you will do
when it comes down to you
no one else can walk in your shoes

it’s time to love one another, we’re sisters and brothers
what are we fighting for?
too many backs that are breaking, lives being taken
what are we killing for?
i think it’s time for forgiveness, to rise up and end this
what are we waiting for?
love teach us the way, to overcome hate
and weapons of war

oh my lord
i have a dream
oh my lord
one day we’ll see
oh my lord
all men be free
oh my lord
i still believe

people let’s love one another, we’re sisters and brothers
what are we fighting for?
too many backs that are breaking, lives being taken
what are we killing for?
i think it’s time for forgiveness, to rise up and end this
what are we waiting for?
love teach us the way, to overcome hate
and weapons of war
