"I wrote this song just before the War in Iraq. I was reading the Old Testament book of Isaiah, in particular the passage in the second chapter verse 4."
Beat your swords into the plowshares
Put down your bayonets of fear
Yet no one listened to the prophets then
And now we're destined for tears.

Sons of darkness, children of light
The teacher of war lingers on
There'll be blood on the altar of the citadels -
All in the name of God !

You diplomats and bureaucrats
Ministers of hate, power and lust
You tell your truth with a wink and smile
But you're losin' everyone's trust

From the sands of Mecca to the shores of New York
They spill the blood of Holy War
The mullahs lie as they twist the prophet's words
The Jihad to fight is the one in your soul

Don't learn war any more
Don't learn war war war
Don't learn war anymore, anymore..

You call me a traitor and a pacifist,
brother you don't have a clue
I'm willing to fight and die for my rights
Only in a cause that's true
The soldiers on the line are brave and strong
They're you sons and your daughters, your neighbors and friends
I say bring 'em all home, send politicians instead,
preferably Republicans…

Jesus Christ the prince of peace
Stands bewildered in dread, shock and awe
If you live by the sword you'll die by the same
Don't spill innocent blood in my name

And no one can tell me I don't love this land
By her I always will stand
We must learn the song of peace in our hearts
For the world's future lies in our hands..

Don't learn war any more
Don't learn war war war
Don't learn war anymore, anymore..


The battle to fight is to learn what is right
Love your brothers and sisters with deeds
God doesn't want the sacrifice of blood and war
The real sacrifice is to all live in peace.

Don't learn war - any more
Don't learn war war war
Don't learn war - anymore, anymore..
