Anti-Flag - 911 For Peace Lyrics




It's in the paper every day
I see it in the headlines and I feel so sick, yeah
Another life leaves this world (this world) so full of hate
But short
Short on compassion
Short on humanity
Asking myself in vain, shaken by the shock,
"do we even have a chance?"

I don't wanna die
(I don't wanna kill)
I don't wanna kill
(I don't wanna die)
We are all human.
It's time to prove it.

This is a plea for peace (world peace)
To the oppressors of the world and to
To the leaders of nations, corporate profit takers,
to the everday citizen
Greed, envy, fear, hate-- the competition has to stop.
When you see someone down, now's the time to pick them up
Set our differences aside and never look back, no

I don't wanna die
(I don't wanna kill)
I don't wanna kill
(I don't wanna die)
We are all human
It's time to prove it.

Isn't everybody tired of the fighting? (hey, hey)
Isn't everybody tired of the killing? (hey, hey)
Isn't everybody tired of the dying? (hey, hey)
Isn't everybody tired of the hatred? (hey, hey)
Violence.. fighting... killing...dying.. aaaaaah!!

[excerpt from Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech:]
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow,
I still have a dream
we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children,
black men and white men
Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join
hands and sing
"Free at last, free at last.
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."

I don't wanna die
(I don't wanna kill)
I don't wanna kill
(I don't wanna die)
We are all human
It's time to prove it.

We are all human
It's time to prove it.
We are all human...

    Kristin McConnell

    Especially with that Orange Cheetoh in office right now causing a race war that could have been avoided.
    "When you see someone down, now's the time to pick em up, Set our differences aside and never look back, No!"

    kurt mccarthy

    I'm guessing that's why Trump's up for the Nobel Peace Prize right now for mending relationships between North Korea and the rest of the world or because he bombed Syria's chemical plants that were used to launch a chemical attack on innocent men, women and children.

    TheGr8one1022

    @Kristin McConnell Orange Man Bad! Shut up you NPC loser. You're a fucking idiot who just cries "boo hoo waycism boo hoo" about everything. You lose every debate to the facts, however. Fucking loser.

    ScroogeTrading

    TheGr8one1022

    8th grade for me. Ironically got this album on my class Washington DC trip haha. I mean, now I'm older and realize that Anti-Flag are the biggest whiny pussies and total fags, but they were pretty cool when I was like 13 years old.

  21. Miss Lynn

    Yes. Just yes.

  22. SONIA

    I FUCKING LOVE ANTI FLAG

  23. Alberto Scatto

    9/11 = LIE

  24. mcx833

    My fav song..

  25. Janene Zapata

    In order to achieve peace, war is a must :) Always been an Anti-Flag fan. If anyone is to be anti-war, it's the guys who've been there...

    Winter Hisagi

    Janene Zapata I know this is a five year old comment, but it doesn't change the fact. War is not peace no matter how nice the suit and tie the person who said it was wearing at the time. Taking lives to save lives just doesn't make sense. War isn't about peace, it's about human nature. We are greedy, we are selfish, we are vile. We kill over land, religion, resources, etc. Hundreds of thousands of people died in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and instead of saying "hey, maybe we should stop this", we said "hey, let's make these bombs bigger and stronger". Unless we are able to set race, religion, sexual orientation, and all that aside and see that we all bleed red, we're going to continue fucking up our planet until there's nothing left of it. You don't have to go to war to be against it. Anyone can see that thousands to millions of people die from it and say "hey, that's shit".

  26. RedHannya

    Why doesn't music like this get played on the radio more? Ohh wait.....

  27. Nicholas Western

    This song needs to be shared all over the place at the moment!!! Put the word out WE WANT PEACE NOT WAR!

  45. punkCDsampler

    @Abercrombieand1Bitch Sure. Message me your email and I'll send it to you.

  46. flabbyballsack

    I love when people say Anti Flag "sold out" just because they got a little popular. They never changed their sound all that much, hate to tell ya but these guys were pop punk from the start. They just did pop punk right. Same with NOFX and 90% of the other groups on Fat.

    Devin MC

    flabbyballsack nofx weren’t pop punk at all

  47. Screaminglemon631

    My English teacher played this for us. I almost screamed when she told us she was going to play a song by Anti-Flag. She's an awesome old gal.
