We didn’t need to lose John – 8/14/02

Whenever things are wrong
like most everyday and night they are
I close my eyes and stare and try
Try to remember the lost souls as I cry

The ones who had a flame and ran with it
Who saw past the reality of humanity
and I think to myself as time goes on…
We didn’t need to lose John

It wasn’t his time, but what time is?
When something is so right it must be stopped?
No one wants to be that one
The one beyond law and war
Beyond fights of hatred
The world had hope but now it’s gone
We didn’t need to lose John

When I go to sleep sometimes
I wish I never wake
What’s the point of getting up to waste another day
It seems we’ve shot all our chances
So things can stay the same
We’re all afraid of letting go and giving up the game

Imagine all the people, it’s easy if you try
Living life together without the wish to die
We had our heroes who had a dream
and now it seems we’ve all gone blind
Our heroes’ dreams are now all gone
We didn’t need to lose John
