I can't believe the news today I can't close my eyes And make it go away How long...How long must we sing this song?
And it's true we are immune When fact is fiction and TV reality And today the millions cry We eat and drink while tomorrow they die - Sunday Bloody Sunday, U2
More pain and misery in the history of mankind Sometimes it seems more like The blind leading the blind It brings upon us more of famine, death and war You know religion has a lot to answer for
And all because of it you’d think That we would learn But still the body count the city fires burn Somewhere there's someone dying In a foreign land Meanwhile the world is crying stupidity of man Tell me why, tell me why... - For the Greater Good of God, Iron Maiden
Why can't we treat our fellow men With more respect and a shake of their hands But anger and loathing is rife The death on all sides is becoming a way of life
But some are just not wanting peace Their whole life is death and misery The only thing that they know Fight fire with fire life is cheap
But if they do stop to think That man is teetering right on the brink But do you think that they care They benefit from death and pain and despair - The Legacy, Iron Maiden
The world is a dangerous place to live, not just because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it. - Albert Einstein
