Track Name: Not In Our Name
We’ve been marching in London - all coming down
A million people, makes quite a sound
Hear it in Westminster and Trafalgar Square
The voice of a nation, for peace everywhere

It’s all about oil, it’s all about greed
It’s all about power, but you’ve not deceived
The eyes of Man, the heart of us all
You can’t make peace fighting out a war

Not In Our Name, you won’t
Not In Our Name, you don’t
Not In Our Name, my friends
Sing it again

We’ve been marching in Paris, Viva la France
We’ve been marching in Italy, from Rome to Florence
And in Barcelona, they say ‘No a la guerra’
And in California, flowers in their hair

Blair and Bush sitting in a tree
K-I-S-S-I-N-G
Bush, Bush, we know this name
Because your father did the same

Not In Our Name, you won’t
Not In Our Name, you don’t
Not In Our Name, my friends
Sing it again

Track Name: Living Peace
I want peace from our leaders, let your people go free
Peace between races, let the colours meet
Peace between man and the ground on which he walks
Peace in our churches, god let's start to talk

War will never heal the wound, just you and me, living peace

I want peace in my family, let the blood be healed
Peace in our neighbourhoods, the common ground be revealed
Peace for our children, in times I’ll never know
Peace between all the lands broken long ago

War will never heal the wound, just you and me, living peace
Forgiveness is the key
War will never heal the wound, just you and me, living peace
