Everyone Is Crying Out For Peace
None Is Crying Out For Justice ;
Everybody Want To Go Up To Heaven
But None Of Them Want To Die ;
What Is Due To Caesar
You Better Give It All To Caesar
And What Belong To I And I
You Better Give It Up To I ;
Everyone Is Heading For The Top
But Tell Me How Far Is It From The Bottom?
It feels wrong to abbreviate and, by doing so, distort Peter Tosh’s beautiful lyrics and phrasing in this, one of his greatest works, but blog space is more bounded than it sometimes seems.

I suspect this song, my talisman and touchstone, means something different to me than it did to Peter Tosh, but Peter wrote it for everyone and gave it word, sound and power.
I DON’T WANT NO PEACE
I NEED EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE.
