Bunny Wailer - War

WAR - and rumours of war.
WAR - and rumours of war.

For until philosophy,
Which hold one race superior and another,
It is finally, and permanently,
Discredited and abandoned.
Everywhere will be war.
Rumours of wars..

For until there no longer,
Any first class and second class,
Citizens of any nation.
That until the colour of a man's skin,
Is of no more, significance,
Than the colour of his eyes.
I say war!

That until the basic human rights,
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race.
I said war.

War in the east!
War in the west!
War up north!
War down south!
Everywhere is war,
And rumours of war.

And until that day,
The dream of lasting peace,
And world citizenship,
And rule of international, morality.
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion,
To be pursued, but never attained.
Everywhere will be war.
And rumours of war!

And until, the ignoble and unhappy regimes,
That hold our Idrens in Angola,
Ina Mozambique, oh yeah,
Ina South Africa,
Sub-human bondage,
Have been toppled, hey,
And utterly destroyed.

And until ?? and prejuicides,
And malaciosu envy human self interest,
Have been replaced by understanding,
Tolerance and good will.
Until all Africans stand and speak,
As free beings, equal in the eyes of all man.
And a Zion. I said war.
And until that day,
The African continent,
Will not know peace,
But the Africans will fight, If we find it necessary,
'Cause we know we shall win,
'Cause we are confident,
Of the victory.

Of good over evil.
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil.
