Story

I work and communicate with people from every nation on the planet, those who know history always understand the ideas in this song and agree.  Those who don't need to be told.

Lyrics

History

© Roman Rhodes, 2015

 

We all gotta study history

if we want to reach the deep agree.

Only then can we really see

that we are all the same everyone.

 

Every race has practiced slavery.

Every culture has caused misery.

Every nation is guilty

of everything under the sun.

 

As long as you don’t see this truth,

you’ll carry on the cycle of abuse

Because you think that there is some use

in revenge for what’s been done.

 

Bridge:                        Oh!---I feel your pain. 

                        Enough to drive you insane.

                        But if you chase your tears and fears and the rain

                        You’re going to hit the ground again and again.

 

Chorus:   Sometimes you gotta fight, to put things right

               But use your brain if you want to survive!

               If we don’t get along, things will go so wrong

               There will be no one left alive.

               With the nuclear bombs it will be our last song

               The end of history and you and me and all that’s good and light---!

 

Now many of the crimes seem unforgivable

But it we don’t forgive, this life’s not livable.

And the cycle of vengeance makes all miserable.

There’s only one door out is to forgive and be done.

 

There’s only one true enemy,

The few who run the wars for greed.

They exist every single country.

They want to own or destroy everything under the sun.            Repeat Bridge

 

The great masses are not so bad

But stupidly they can be had

And led to fight each other for the cads

Who despise all life and every one.

 

So refuse to be a soldier man

Refuse to fight for the psychopaths

Join all together and lets us last

To see the sun rise again on everyone.                                     Repeat Chorus
