Track Name: AK47
AK 47
after decades of war and misery
after death and destruction in our families
we are ready to move on
we are ready to move on

we need hope, a sign of community
turn our weapons into art and give them dignity
we are ready to move on
we are ready to move on

AK 47s heal the heart
when you turn them into art

equal opportunity
even though we've seen each other as the enemy
we are ready to move on
we are ready to move on

we need hope, a sign of community
turn our weapons into art and give them dignity
we are ready to move on
we are ready to move on
Track Name: Superstar
SUPERSTAR
In the streets of downtown Beijing
there is a story going ‘round
About a man who fought an army
He’s all the people talk about,
They sing

Tankman the greatest hero by far
Tankman the superstar

No one knows what he was doing
it is a worldwide mystery.
He stood his ground facing an army
with nothing but his groceries
We sing

Tankman the greatest hero by far
Tankman the superstar

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday night
we watching tankman on the TV till the end of the day
Track Name: Come On
COME ON
Brother where’s your dignity?
Standing here in front of me
Parted by our points of view
I still love all that is you

Come on
You’re so far away
And yet you’ve never been this close (before)

In your hand a loaded gun
In my hand a fragile flower;
No match for destructive power
(But) i don’t know what else to do.
Track Name: Samantha Smith
SAMANTHA SMITH
Back in ‘82 there was a 10-year-old girl with a message to the world.
Her voice was heard. Her question, plain and simple:
If everybody is the same
And no one likes a war
then who will be the one to start it all?

Listen listen listen come to your senses
Listen listen listen stop building fences
Listen listen listen we’ve been here before

Listen listen listen she brought the wall down
Listen listen listen she brought them all down
Listen listen listen we don’t want no war

Oh Samantha Smith, everybody loved her,
everybody mourned her.
When the Berlin wall came down
She may have been watching from above.
Track Name: Tiananmen Square
TIANANMEN SQUARE
Does it bother you,
Square of heavenly peace?
They have defiled your name
Blood stains on the porcelain.

They have buried the truth
but you’re covered in blood.
Won’t you tell us the truth?
Tiananmen square?

The crowd was singing songs
their hopes were running high
Why did you keep quiet?
When soldiers came to break their faith.
Track Name: Hold Your Ground
HOLD YOUR GROUND
Let’s demonstrate
Let’s demonstrate democracy
Cause we’ve fallen in Love
With the idea of being free

So get up like the tankman
Hold your ground peacefully
Get up like the tankman
Raise your arms peacefully
Oh oh oh oh oh like the tankman
Oh oh oh oh oh like a better man.
Oh oh oh oh oh

Let’s not forget
Let’s not forget L.O.V.E
Cause we’ve fallen in love
With the idea of being free
Track Name: Alright Now
ALRIGHT NOW
I won’t walk away
the images of yesterday
the voices of the crowd
are burning in my mind.

It’s all right now
It’s all right now
it’s all right now
we won’t be led astray.

I won’t walk away
I can feel a hand in mine
All my fear is gone
You whisper in my ear:

It’s all right now
it’s all right now
it’s all right now
we won’t be led astray.
Track Name: Turn Around
TURN AROUND
turn around
take it slow

All our hopes were laid out on the streets
As they came to celebrate.
He just stood there and stopped their cruel parade
And so he saved us, he really saved us.

he doesn't want to be found
until the battle is over.

We rushed out and dragged him off the street
And so we saved him, we really saved him.
Track Name: After The Bombs (ft Karim Wasfi)
AFTER THE BOMBS
Step outside into an empty town
After the bombs stop falling down
After the bombs stop falling down
Put a chair right on the scalded ground
Take a deep breath and just sit down
Take a deep breath and just sit down

Yeah, this is where we play
This is where we sing
It will heal the land

Raise your hand, pick up the cello’s bow
Wherever you play the flowers grow
Wherever you play the flowers grow

Yeah, this is were we play
This is were we sing
It will heal the land
Track Name: Power To The People (Bonus Track)
POWER TO THE PEOPLE
We're marching to, marching to Tia-nan-men
The square of peace, the place to be, so gather around.
We'll sing the songs
songs that might be forbidden
but we don't care
(power to the people)

No, we won't fight; violence, out of the question.
Democracy is only won through the people.
That’s why we plea; you and me: equality
That's why we scream:
(power to the people)
Track Name: Party (Bonus Track)
PARTY

We're gonna party the rest of the day
Until tomorrow comes, sorrow comes.

Welcome
Leave your sorrows at the door and stay today, till the morning light.
