Army Of Lovers

Maybe in the next world!

 

Army Of Lovers (soon to be a song…)

What we need is an army of lovers
instead of armies of soldiers

Please please before it’s too late
oh no not another corrupted state
why do humans want to destroy
make love not war

Let’s embrace with weapons of love
whatever your culture dictates

Wipe out aggression and hate
with a sexual passion to create
a world of peace and harmony
make love not war

What we need is an army of lovers
instead of armies of soldiers

There’s too much political control and greed
dictators sowing their destructive seed
leading the world into the abyss
make love not war

Why do humans detest and terrorise each other
causing pain and death to sister and brother

Is it because of religious and racial hate
or the rich power hungry forcing fate
the antidote is sexual intimacy
make love not war

Composed by Clive Franklin
