People causing wars
Taking lives in hand 
Killing all who disagree
That live throughout the land
Peace has gone away
No more to be seen
War spread across the land
From sea to shining sea

Men who would be leaders
Would be leaders of men
Rouse up the dissidents
From children of this land
Preach a new ideology
Raise the blood of ire
Teach them hatred every man
To kill what they don’t admire

Blacksmith take your plowshare
Forge them into swords
Make us instruments of war
More powerful than words
Farmer grant us pardon
For the food we do take
There’s no time to tend the land
A new life we will make

This will be a land of plenty
If you do as we decree
Peace will be all you see
Peace all you need
The streets will be paved with gold
The sky in silver filigree
The land will flourish as we speak
The animals bow at our feet

The land will be restored
After this mighty war
There will be prosperity
On this mighty shore
No more poverty
No more living in the streets
All will be made whole
From the mighty to the meek

We will be your leaders
Into the great unknown
Into a time we dreamed about
When as children we did roam
Towers built to signify
That we are gods
Statues and monuments
To worship midst the mobs

We must forge new ideals
To manifest on Earth
That all who live and breath today
Will bow and give birth
Unto a mighty nation
One world wrapped in unity
One made for such a time as this
Our one true destiny
