Lyrics

Oh Hiroshima, Oh Antietam, Oh Stalingrad, Oh 911,
Oh Yorktown, Oh Hastings, Nagasaki and Waterloo,

Oh Khe Sanh, Oh la Drang Valley, Oh Verdun, Oh Somme,
Oh Salamis, Oh Blitzkrieg, Watery graves and Abu Ghraib

Tell me
When will, when will peace come?
When will, when will peace come?
When will, when will peace come?
The Rivers of Blood keep on flowing through

Oh Peace Keepers, Firebombs, Oh Howitzers and suicide moms,
Oh Flamethrowers, Immolation, Body Counts and bags and Ypres (E–pres) gas

Oh Nazis, KKK, Oh CIA, Oh SS,
Oh KGB, NDVD, Oh Daesh

Tell me
When will, when will peace come?
When will, when will peace come?
When will, when will peace come?
The Rivers of Blood keep on flowing through

Oh Khmer Rouge, the Battle of the Bulge,
Dachau, Auschwitz and Buchenwald says it all.
Oh Trail of Tears and Cherokee, Wounded Knee in 73
Oh tanks, guns, bombs and planes, whips, knives, bayonets and chains
Lynching and screams, beating and bleeding
Ferguson, Baltimore, Orlando on TV

Tell me
When will, when will peace come?
When will, when will peace come?
When will, when will peace come?
The Rivers of Blood keep on flowing through
The Rivers of Blood keep on flowing through

Like the Ancient Wars, like the Picts, the Celts, the Mongols, the Three Kingdoms Wars
Oh refugees everywhere, I’m on my knees, I’m on my knees
Syria, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa, the Promised Land - Oh please tell me, when, when will peace come?
Remember World War 1, and World War 2, the Korean War, the African Holocaust, the Jewish Holocaust,
Please, please tell me
When

If not now
