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

About IMAGINE PEACE TOWER


IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of John Lennon. It is situated on Viðey Island in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The artwork was dedicated to John by Yoko at its unveiling on October 9th 2007, John Lennon’s 67th birthday.

IMAGINE PEACE TOWER symbolizes Lennon’s and Ono’s continuing campaign for world peace – which began in the sixties, was sealed by their marriage in 1969 and will continue forever.

The words IMAGINE PEACE are inscribed on the Wishing Well of IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in 24 different languages.

IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is composed of a tall shimmering tower of light that appears every year and is visible from October 9th (John’s birthday) until December 8th (the anniversary of his death).

In addition, the Tower will illuminate from Winter Solstice (December 21st) to New Year’s Eve (December 31st) and the first week of spring (March 21st – 28th) John & Yoko’s Honeymoon & Bed-In in Amsterdam.

It is lit from 2 hours after sunset until midnight, and until dawn on John & Yoko’s birthdays and New Year’s Eve.

In tribute to Yoko, the City of Reykjavik lights IMAGINE PEACE TOWER on her birthday February 18th from 7pm until 9am the following day.

One of the mesmerising features of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is that the strength, intensity and brilliance of its light continually changes with the prevailing weather and atmospheric conditions unique to Iceland – creating a clear pillar of light on a cloudless night, beams irridescing with rainbow refractions in rain or snowfall, and brilliantly reflecting off and through any moving layers of cloud.

Watch a live feed on the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER website at these times: Reykjavik 8pm-12pm = London & Liverpool 9pm-1am = New York 4pm-8pm = Los Angeles 1pm-5pm = Tokyo 5am-9am.
