The Illusive Dream

The illusive dream that started so long ago
Long before our forfathers journeyed far
Searching for the illusive dream,
A dream of a perfect world for you and me
A land of the free

Where is this world that they had found?
A peaceful land of the free, for you and me?
Is the answer like Dylan once said'still blowing in the wind?
The message of peace must be conveyed again
There must be hope for our childrens, childrens, children
Greedy politicians around the world who will not listen

Is peace just an illusion of mankind?
In a world where man can be so unkind
Our very young men given a gun
who were once our newborn sons
Now fighting a war with no purpose
except to feed the need for greed

Let's stop this insanity
For the sake of humanity
Let's stop the war
The angels are crying
As our young men lay dying
When the rose of sharon blooms in the desert of Israel
The white wings of the dove of peace shall flail

Then God will come and kill the beast
The beast of war
and God will come to gather his flock
then there shall be peace at last
but not in this world,
but in a place where love will reign
in the illusive dream that can finally be found
