The page contains the lyrics of the song "Why Go to War" by William Onyeabor.

Lyrics

Why go to war, why not find peace?
In this world
All blacks and whites all over the world, I’m asking
All blacks and whites all over the world answer me
Why go to war when you know there should be peace
Why go to war when you know you need peace
You just want another guy to stop a bullet for you
But you’ll never, never want to stop a bullet for another guy
Why go to war, why not find peace
All blacks and whites all over the world, I’m calling on you
Leaders, all nations, super powers
Tell me… why you like to go to war
Every time war
You want small boys to die for you
Innocent souls are killed every day
Tell me why you like war
You want another guy to stop a bullet for you
But you’ll never like to stop a bullet
For another guy
Why go to war why not find peace?
