"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.
"I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in fields of gold..."
from "Fields of Gold" by Sting
Album: "Ten Summoner's Tales" - 1993
This song is about life: love, marriage and death.
"And so we're told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
On New Year's Day"
from "New Year's Day" by the U2
Album: "War" - 1983
The lyric had its origins in a love song from Bono to his wife, but was subsequently reshaped and inspired by the Polish Solidarity movement.
In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine placed the single at #427 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time"
There's a cure
And you have finally found it
Will shrink you 'til you're underground
And living down
But it's not going to stop
'Til you wise up..."
from "Wise up" by Aimee Mann
Album: "Magnolia: Music from the Motion Picture" (the soundtrack album to the Paul Thomas Anderson motion picture "Magnolia" - 1999)
