"That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained
Now everywhere is war - war..."
from "War" by Bob Marley & The Wailers
Album: "Rastaman Vibration" - 1976
The lyrics are almost literally derived from a speech made by Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I before the United Nations General Assembly in 1963.
"Ebony And Ivory Live Together In Perfect Harmony
Side By Side On My Piano Keyboard, Oh Lord, Why Don't We?
We All Know That People Are The Same Where Ever We Go
There Is Good And Bad In Ev'ryone,
We Learn To Live, We Learn To Give
Each Other What We Need To Survive Together Alive..."
"If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true
from "If I Can Dream" by Elvis Presley
This song was written by Walter Earl Brown and notable for its direct quotations of Martin Luther King, Jr.
It was recorded by Presley in June 1968, two months after Martin Luther King's assassination.
