Mason Jennings Emperor Ashoka Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2012 11:00:00 AM

Conquering the kingdom of Kalinga
In the Indian state of Orissa
Brought the death of so many men
Ashoka vowed to never fight again.

And all across the land, them emperor's power grew
Love before violence, all conflicts with silence

Remember Ashoka Maurya
Remember Ashoka Maurya
Remember Ashoka Maurya
Era of imperialist Buddhist rule

From every corner of his empire
Had overseers of the law
Teach the brand new policies
Befriending all of his enemies

And from every house
All the people sang
Lets raise up the things that fill us
Put down the weapons that kill us

I ain't gonna study this world no more
I ain't gonna study this world no more
I'm gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside

May your body be strong
May your heart be full
And may you live to be 100 years

Oh don't cry don't cry no more
Babies gonna sleep at night
Oh don't cry don't cry no more
Everybody knows, everybody knows

I ain't gonna study this world no more, please don't cry
I ain't gonna study this world no more, years gone by
