Magna Charter Lyrics

Write the rules for the games we play
Carved in stone for a future time
Broken pieces thrown away
Broken pieces that are mine
Hope in words so nearly true
Peaceful times are long unseen
Promises I give to you
Only I know what they mean
Charter for a freedom lost
Made by man who knows not why
Leaving youth to count the cost
They only suffer times gone by
It would never be the same
If ruler lived beyond his past
He would have to live his game
And speed of truth is never fast
Should there ever be a charter
With words to change the course of man
To give us peace and hope and understanding
And take us back to where it all began
The sword is still the only answer
The loudest sound that can be heard
The scream of silence as the fear grows stronger
Hear the people
Cry to no-one
No-one hears their words
And so
Time moves on
A war
Waged in words
With Kings and Church and common man
But no winner
Or beginner
Can understand the battle plan
But the battle never lasts long
Even though it is an old song
And the singer never sings the same old verse
Turn the melody to war chant
Change the flowers into warplants
Kill them all
Just to swell the purse
Pray to the Father
Peace ever after
Only love
Up above
Glory to the war

So for peace we wage a war
As in war we fight for peace
Death to all, be rich or poor
Comes in such a bloody feast
Will they meet in a future time?
Will it happen yet again?
Only God knows the truth they say
Only He is ahead of our time
Where is the charter made for love?
Where is the charter for killing war?
Sadly hidden in the warrior's glove
Making light for ever more
Magna Charter shows a path
Over which no truth can stray
Floating as a neutral craft along its way
Should there ever be a charter
With words to change the course of man
To give us peace and hope and understanding
And take us back to where it all began
The sword is still the only answer
The loudest sound that can be heard
The screams of silence as the fear grows stronger
Hear the people
Cry to no-one
No-one hears their words
