Lyrics
Sometimes I can’t help cryin’
People when I hear about the dying
Young men, women, children
By the violence they’ve endured
Just start
Yes, people we
We got to stop
My God, yeah,
Sisters and brothers
Do you hear me?

We got to stop killing one another
Sometimes I can’t help thinking
People when I’ve been sittin’ and drinkin’
While the powers of the world are struggling
The children of the world are starving
All the prayers of peace are rising

Don’t you know?
The sons of war are dying
Hey, don’t you see
We got to stop
Yes, people, we
We go to stop
My God yeah
Sisters and brothers
Do you hear me?
We got to stop
Killing one another

Sometimes I can’t help but wondering
Um, what in the world is happening?
While the white man’s power is ruling
The black man’s power is slipping
Ooh and while the dead mans power awakens

Hey, now,
Ever man’s power is growing
And growing
Hey, don’t you see
We got to stop
Yes, people we,
We got to stop
I got to, yeah
Sisters and brothers
Do you hear me?

We go to stop killing one another
Learn to take care of each other
Ooh, and try to love one another
People, don’t you think it’s time?
