Livtar Singh – When the Killing Ends (hearnow.com)

中英對照歌詞如下:

When the Killing Ends (We Are Life)
殺戮終止時 (你我皆生靈)

1. The superpowers play a dangerous game 世界強權玩著危險的遊戲
the East against the West 東方與西方相互對抗
Is it too much to ask after all these wars 停止一切戰爭,讓世界喘口氣
to give the world a rest 這要求是否太過?
Missiles and guns don’t bring us peace 飛彈槍炮無法帶來和平
Somebody’s lying to us 有人正在欺騙我們
Have you ever seen a dollar bill 你可曾見過一元鈔票寫著:
that said, “In Bombs We Trust”? “有了炸彈我們還能信任”?

合唱
We are life and we come from tomorrow 你我皆生靈,我們來自明日
We won’t stand around while the world burns down 當世界焚盡,我們也不復存在
We’ve already seen enough sorrow 我們已經見到夠多傷痛
We are life and we just want to know when 你我皆生靈,我們只想知道何時
When can the killing end, and the living begin? 何時能停下殺戮,讓生活可以開始?
2. We’ll send a mighty message 我們將傳達強有力的訊息
and life will be our song 我們將歌頌生命
We’ll join our voices together 我們將攜手一同發聲
’till we’re a hundred million strong 直到有百萬倍聲量
Somebody has to offer peace Somebody has to start 得有人提供和平,得有人開始
Silence the beat of the drums of war 讓戰鼓的敲擊聲安靜下來,
and follow the beat of the heart 跟隨內在的心跳聲
3. For all the clear and starry nights 為所有繁星閃耀的明亮夜晚
for all the deep blue seas 為所有深藍的海洋
For all the children playing 為所有嬉鬧玩耍的孩童
for all the birds flying free 為所有自由飛翔的鳥兒
For the dreams and babies yet unborn, 為夢想與還未出世的嬰兒
for the heroes and lovers yet unsung 為默默無聞的英雄與愛人們
Let’s find a way to stop this madness today 讓我們尋找出路,今天就停下這瘋狂

最後合唱
We are life and we come from tomorrow 你我皆生靈,我們來自明日
We won’t stand around while they burn our world down 當世界焚盡,我們也不復存在
We’ve already seen enough sorrow 我們已經見到夠多傷痛
We are life and we have a message to send 你我皆生靈,我們有個訊息要傳達
When the killing ends, the living can begin 當殺戮終止時,生活才能開始

過渡樂段
In the days to come the Truth it will be known 那一天將到來,真理會被知悉
The world is round we don’t live alone 地球是圓的,我們並非獨自存在
And every missile we send, will come back on the wind 每顆發射的飛彈,將隨風回來
It’s better to love the Earth, it must not end 最好珍愛地球,這絕不能是終點
