"tear hate down" transcender f/astrid young -

an anti war anthem played millions of times in dozens of countries, [ according to emule.com file share numbers.]...
12 - tear hate down

1v- in the confines of the compound, the children burned and died…
when the a g did her sound bite, she said she tried and tried…
well i watched the instant replays for 51 short days;
when the end came into focus, the children were betrayed…

c- turn the page of your history book…
fill the new page with truth love and pride…
stand against all that is wrong in this world…
if you make this promise, then i’ll stand by your side…

2v- it was noon in oklahoma, just like every other day;
and that was just the problem, it’s always been that way…
then a young man lit a truck bomb and the sparks began to fly…
it was time for t v questions; all john q could ask was “why” ?…
if you think about it deeply; unless you break the chain;
then reaction breeds reaction, and all that’s left is pain…
c-

3v- when the leaders cheat their subjects and lie and steal their rights,
then the next in line get ready and talk soon turns to fight…
even neil young’s deep in jingo, so i guess the end is near;
i can hear the “angels” trumpet, cause it’s blaring in my ears…
but solution isn’t easy, it should never seem to be…
it’s the hard won strength of conscience that will set you free…

c-

4v- hard times, airplane bombs; tall buildings come crumbling to the ground…
bloody nose, broken crest, in the bullies front yard the east comes to the west…
there’s a story to be told, [ by the have-nots, out in the cold.]…

c- tear hate down…tear hate down…tear hate down…

5v- farewell to what’s left of your rights,
the baby’s out with the bath water in the street...
status quo, oil is gold; a bigger gun makes a bigger man so you’re told;
and it’s all good if it sold; but there’s no place here for the old…
c-

6v- now if you’re poor, you’re gonna get raped,
can’t talk to your lawyer cause you both know you’re bein’ taped…
someday it’s all gonna end;
i hope my boy has the courage to transcend whatever’s comin’ around the bend…
c-
