What should we use to wash away
The traces left by war
A once great land is now left with nothing but devastation
What should we use to wash away
The marks left by violence
A once-glorious homeland has been razed to the ground

You turned all the people who loved you into killing robots
Make them slaughter each other so you can conquer more territory
To pompously satisfy your bottomless selfish desires
Violence has been labeled as war to uphold your so-called justice

When your beloved loses both legs on the battlefield
When he’s unable to sleep at night, shouting and crying in pain
When you fearfully wait for news and it finally becomes a death notification
Then victory in war is mockery aimed directly at you

When you’re still diligently pondering your life’s potential
When the bomb drops a second before you receive blessings
This isn’t the heavens making a senseless joke at your expense
You must start praying for the lifetime of suffering you will receive

Your people are drifting in misery, homeless and destitute
Your people are desperately searching for a way to survive
You’ve already gotten what you were striving for
But you paid a painful price in bloodshed

Your power is pushing you towards the path of no return
Your power will not allow your soul to be redeemed
Yet even if you are hacked to pieces, it won’t wash away your sins
Violence has completely turned into a berserker demon

What should we use to resist
The merciless destruction of bullets
You use the bodies of warriors to build the facade of war victory
What should we use to rouse
The deeply slumbering power
The firepower of war cannot withstand the longing for peace in people's hearts

What should we use to liberate
The power of love and peace
So that it can heal the desolation of time
To allow happiness to grow like crazy
No more casualties
No more casualties
No more people will be hurt by this

Chinese lyrics

我们该用什么来清洗
战争留下的痕迹
曾经大好的河山现在只剩下满目疮痍
我们该用什么来清洗
伤害留下的痕迹
曾经美好的家园都已经被夷为一片平地

你将爱你的人民全都变成杀人机器
让他们互相残杀为你争夺更多的土地
为了冠冕堂皇地满足你贪得无厌的私欲
暴力被冠以战争之名去主持你所谓的正义

当你心爱的人在战场上失去双脚
当他在夜里无法入睡,痛苦地大声哭嚎
当你战战兢兢等待的消息最终变成噩耗
那么战争的胜利就是对你最直接的嘲笑

当你还在为人生的前途用力地思考
当炸弹掉落在你迎接幸福之前那一秒
这不是老天对你开的无聊玩笑
你要为从此迎接苦难的一生开始祷告

你的人民在颠沛流离居无定所
你的人民在为了生活苦苦求索
你已经得到了一切你想得到的结果
却为此付出惨痛的代价血流成河

你的权力在把你推向一条不归的路
你的权力在让自己的灵魂得不到救赎
可是就算将你千刀万剐也洗不去你犯下的罪恶
暴力已经完全变成一个丧心病狂的恶魔

我们该用什么来抵挡
子弹无情的扫荡
你用战士的尸体堆积成战争胜利的假象
我们该用什么来唤起
还在沉睡的力量
战争的炮火敌不过人民心中对和平的渴望

我们该用什么来解放
爱与和平的力量
让它能治愈时间的荒凉
让快乐疯狂生长
不再受伤
不再受伤
不会再有人为此受伤
