The world is burning down
Can't you smell the smoke in the air?
War, disease and famine
This demon, she is everywhere

Poets and preachers and politicians
They've all had their say
And we got 10,000 years devoted to nothing
But tomorrow and yesterday, 10,000 years

If all of the ignorance in the world
Passes a second ago
What would you say?
And who would you obey?

I am here to say that
Peace is now, peace is now
Peace is now, peace is now

Mr. President, I hereby pardon you of all your crimes
For they are just as much mine
Selfishness and separation have led me
To believe that the world is not my problem

The world is not my problem
I am the world and you are the world
And I, yes I am the world
And you are the world

If all of the ignorance in the world
Passes a second ago
What would you say?
And who would you obey now?

I am here to say that
Peace is now, peace is now
Peace is now, peace must be now

Peace is now, peace is now
Peace is now, peace is now
Peace is now, peace is now
Peace is now, peace is now
Peace is now
