Three Minutes Silences

Robb Johnson
Language: English



They said we ought to have 3 minutes silence.
I thought: The dead from 2 world wars only rate 2 minutes.
But most of them didn't speak american.

So I tried hard to have 3 minutes silence,
But all I could hear was all these voices,
Screaming,
But most of them didn't speak american.

I heard ghost voices from Hanoi, ghost voices from Hiroshima,
Ghost voices from Beirut, ghost voices from Baghdad,
And the Secretary of State says: This is a price worth paying.
Half a million children in Iraq, this is a price worth paying?

I don't believe it helps much, all this arithmetic,
An eye for an eye for an eye for an eye
just makes the whole world blind.
They said we ought to have 3 minutes silence.
I think we ought to have a different kind of justice,
Not more bombs and silences.

No more bombs and silences.
