Peace Now! (x4) We are gathered here, we come from so many different places, from different identities, different cultures, different backrounds, different religions, and yet we can gather under the god of - Peace Now! (x2) We say no to war, peace up, war down. (x2) We made it, we're here, we're here right now and we're not leaving. We had more reports that more and more people are just taking on-ramps onto the bridge, and they're just taking it over, it's, it's just, i mean, i just, ahhh. This is what democracy looks like, this is what democracy sounds like (x2) Reports from protests in Aman Jordan, and Amsterdam, Berut Lebanon, Nili East-Timor, Florence Italy, London, Milano Italy, Paris France. In dozens of cities, in Spain, reports in Athens Georgia, and Austin Texas, Waxford Virginia, Charleston South Carolina, Colorado Springs, and Defiance Ohio, Denver Colorado as well as Durango, Geneva New York, and Houston Texas, Hyannis Massachusetts, in Hawaii as well, Lorence Kansas, Los Angeles California, and I am only naming a few. Peace Now! (x2) And as Eleanor Roosevelt said, "It isn't enough to talk about peace, one must believe in it. It isn't enough to believe in it, one must work at it. And we here today are working at it." No blood for oil. We will not be silent. No blood for oil. We will not go to war for a selected President who wasnt even elected. We must stand unbroken, unvowed, and unattained. We need health care, we need education, we need FREEDOM IN THIS NATION (x4) Thousands of people have taken over 3rd Avenue and are marching north. The crowd stretches at least 15 blocks from 44th Street to 59th Street. The police have just simply given up. This is what democracy looks like, this is what democracy sounds like (x2) Peace Now! (x2) We will not sell-out, we will not back down, we will not compromise, we will go forward until peace is on the World agenda. We say no to war, NO WAR! (x3) -
