No Protest For Me Tonight!!!

I would normally be at the La Quinta peace vigil tonight ... but, my right arm is so achy that I won't be able to hold my protest sign ... so in lieu of the protest I'm going to post the lyrics to Michael Franti & Spearhead's song "Time to Go Home" (watch the video):

TIME TO GO HOME

Those who start wars, never fight them
And those who fight wars, they never like them
And those who write laws, they can't recite them
And those of us who just fight laws, we live and die them

But I know they never gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
Never ever gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
Never ever gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you liesIts time...it's time to go home

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no (it's time to go home)
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no

Those who build walls are pretending
That forever they can defend them
Those who dam streams can build fountains (yes they can)
But those of us who just let them run free...we can move mountains

But I know they never gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
Never ever gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you lies, no
Never ever gonna tell you why, no
They only wanna tell you lies
Its time...it's time to go home

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no (it's time to go home)
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no

It's time
It's time!
How many people were they runnin from and
How many people never saw it comin
How many people never heard the warning
How many people never stayed at home and
How many people never heard the call and
How many people never saw it all and
How many people did they spend it on and
How many people got to sing this song and
How many people never heard the cry and
How many people gotten pushed aside and
How many people never saw the doves fly
How many people never said goodbye and
How many people never saw the fall and
How many people til we end it all and
How many people never saw the wrong and
How many people did we drop the bomb on

Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away, no
Don't take our girls away, no
Don't take our boys away
It's time
It's time to go home

Away
Away, highway ridin'
Away, highway ridin'
Away
Away (Away)
Away (Away)
Away (Don't take our boys away)
Away
