how many homes
do we have to build
in the course of one life-time?

how many children
that will have to be killed
before we think it's a crime?

how many people
that will have to die
before we even try?


angry army soldiers sweeping over town in heavy boots
knocking down the doors
crowded ugly cemeteries getting fuller by the day
thirsty yet for more


yet you tell me Christmas time is here
and you dare to even call me dear


lonely men are flying hot balloons around a hot balloon
angry they had to pause
cruise missiles are landing near what used to be our home, real soon
only just because

yet you tell me that love is here
and ask me not to fear



i will only ask you this
i shall have to ask you this

how many homes do we have to build
in the course of one life-time?
