There’s a cloud that lingers in our heads and we don’t see,
The fog that it brings, the shadowed memory.
I can only tell you what it means to me,
The walls that were built, all through history.

If we would only learn from all that we have known
If we could only see all that we’ve been shown
Out of hate and fear we surely should have grown
And try to treat each other as if they were our own

Don’t lie don’t hurt don’t cheat don’t steal don’t kill

Through the many circles of the centuries
We’ve all been here before at least to some degree
Now right and wrong should be plain for everyone to see
I don’t know why it’s so hard just to let it be

If we would only learn from all that we have known
If we could only see all that we’ve been shown
Out of hate and fear we surely should have grown
And try to treat each other as if they were our own

Don’t lie don’t hurt don’t cheat don’t steal don’t kill

It’s the world we want to live in
It’s the world we want to see
Everybody has to start giving
To live in ecstasy

Don’t lie don’t hurt don’t cheat don’t steal don’t kill

I am hoping that someday we all will come around
Realize the good that’s there and hope that it gets found
There can be Peace in our time if we turn around
Look each other in the eye and stand on equal ground

Then we will have learned from all that we have known
And we would truly see all that we’ve been shown
Out of hate and fear we surely will have grown
And we can treat each other as if they were our own

Don’t lie don’t hurt don’t cheat don’t steal don’t kill
