Yoko Ono at Bowery Ballroom 2013

For #PEACEDAY, here is my new song CHESHIRE CAT CRY.
I revised the lyrics for the version performed on September 15th at my Bowery Ballroom Concert.
I love you!

CHESHIRE CAT CRY

I’m rolling in your dreams
Listening to your screams
Cheshire Cat Cry
The River is dry

We the expendable people of the United States
Digging our own ditches
While the Dead in the trenches
Are covered with sand
Covered with sand

Stop the violence
Stop all wars
Stop the violence
Stop all wars

We the expendable people of the United States
Ask to stop the violence
Stop all wars

The sand is still moving
They can’t die
Cheshire Cat Cry
Cheshire Cat Cry

We the expendable people of the United States
Ask to stop the violence
Stop all wars

“Ma, they told us that
Our blood money will give us
Independence, freedom and power

This is my blood money
30 thousand dollars!
I want you to have it
And I want you to quit your job
All these years,
You’re standing on your feet all day
Don’t worry, I’ll be back
I’ll be back soon.
to take care of you”

He came back with no arms no legs

A guy with fat hands
fat fingers
Counting my money
Over my dead body

Cheshire Cat Cry
Cheshire Cat Cry

We the expendable people of the United States
Ask to stop the violence
Stop all wars

We don’t need it
Who needs it
Who needs it
Who needs it

Cheshire Cat Cry
Our Hearts are Dry
