"They printed out the lyrics 'Monday morning, eighteen years of dawning/I said how long' as 'Monday morning, knitting years of gold' — which is much better!" — Bono, describing a foreign translation of his "Out Of Control" lyrics

Until the philosophy which holds one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Oh, everywhere is war, say war

is war
Children

Until there are no longer first class
Second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Everywhere is war, war
Everywhere is war

Killing the brother, war
Destroying the country, war
For nothing, war
For nothing, war
They going to take care of another brother
We don't need no more war

Some winning, some losing
Some dying, some crying
Some singing
We don't need no more trouble
We don't need no more trouble
We don't need no more trouble
Oh no, oh no no no
We don't need no more trouble

We don't need no more trouble
We don't need no more trouble
Oh no, oh no

What we need is love to guide and protect us on
If you help me down from above
Help from where we get from
Oh, you got to stop the war

We don't need no more trouble
We don't need no more trouble
