the peace of all mankind.

A riff cuts the cloying air,

and the crowd comes alive,

as he talks through chords

driving the rhythm,

the crowd clapping in time,

as he tells them to rebell,

lets march on the evil that

holds us back,

lets have the dream again,

lets make thing right,

for the sake of our world and

all mankind, let us not sit and wait,

let us play our guitars,

bang our drums,

and march on all that blights our future,

yes for the sake, for the sake of all

mankind can we move on forward

and save our world;

the guitar trembled in his hand

as the riff distorted into haze,

and the sweat ran down his face

as he played on to save the earth.

 

Thanks to Albert Hammond for the use of the line: for the peace of all mankind.
