Lyrics

It is time! Let the white poppies bloom
and the blood of the past stain no more;
it is time… for the sowing of seed
that will outgrow the jungles of war,

and the soul of the world will be healed,
and the darkness give way to the sun,
and the terror of nuclear night will be gone
in a peace that will never be done!

It is time… that the white poppies grow
through the hatreds and hurts that survive,
it is time… for the tumbling of towers
and the building of trust kept alive:

and the soul of the world will be healed,
and the darkness give way to the sun,
and the terror of nuclear night will be gone
in a peace that will never be done!

It is time: let the white petals float
over countries and cultures and lands;
it is time…that the dreams that were lost
be reclaimed by our hearts and our hands,

and the soul of the world will be healed,
and the darkness give way to the sun,
and the terror of nuclear night will be gone
in a peace that will never be done!
