Lyrics

(Source: Bagism)

We're playing those mind games together,
Pushing the barriers, planting seeds,
Playing the mi-i-i-ind guerrilla,
Chanting the mantra, "peace on earth."
We all been playing those mind games forever,
Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil.
Doing the mi-i-i-ind guerrilla.
Some call it magic, the search for the grail.
Love is the answer, and you know that, for sure.
Love is a the flower--you got to let it, you got to let it grow.
So keep on playing those mind games together,
Faith in the future, outta the now.
You just can't beat on those mi-i-i-ind guerrillas,
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind,
Yeah, we're playing those mind games forever,
Projecting our images in space and in time.
Yes is the answer, and you know that, for sure.
Yes is surrender--you got to let it, you got to let it go.
So keep on playing those mind games together,
Doing the ritual dance in the sun.
Millions of mi-i-i-ind guerrillas
Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel.
Keep on playing those mind games forever.
Raising the spirit of peace and love.
Love...
(I want you to make love, not war. I know you've heard it before.)
Let's make love, not war, not war.
I want to make love, ooh, ooh.
Make love, not war, not war.
I meant to make love, not war, not war.
