every word you say
drops like a bomb
from your lips

when we go at it
the neighbors close their doors
and board their windows

because when we fight
we're likely to level the whole street

Why can't this be our Armistice day
why can't we just stop it
for one whole day
Why Can't this be our
Armistice Day

We need to think of the kids
This can't be good for them
to see their parents warring

because when we fight
we're likely to level the whole street

Why can't this be our Armistice day
why can't we just stop it
for one whole day
Why Can't this be our
Armistice Day

I can't live like this anymore
I don't want to be a solider in a war
so I'm done

I'm laying down my gun
I'm surrendering

this is our Armistice Day
we've finally stopped it
for all our days
this is our
Armistice Day

I know it won't be easy to rebuild
but reconstruction must be better
than all this destruction

this is our Armistice Day
we've finally stopped it
for all our days
this is our
Armistice day
