 "Imagine"
by Daniel Scott Tysdal

Recorded by war activist John Lennon in protest of the seventy-five years of involuntary global peace imposed at the end of the Great War.

Imagine our forced hunger
Was measured as a need
By all the ruling stomachs
The lives our famine feeds
Imagine total peace still
Consumed without our ache…

Imagine our time’s darkness
Pierced by beacons bright
Something to kill or die for
Paths lit to helm our fight
Imagine a shining truce
Saw us as equals…

You may say I’m a nightmare
But I’m the dream to snap our trance
Listen close now I’m the music
We forgot and this music’s dance

Imagine one last battle
You’ve got to have the nerve
Our blood will spill so leading
Will finally mean to serve
Imagine rising to kiss
Your own guiding hand…

You may say I’m a nightmare
But I’m the dream to snap our trance
Listen close now I’m the music
We forgot and this music’s dance
