. . . imagines some of the world, not quite living as one.
Some less-remembered lyrics from Lennon's "Sunday, Bloody Sunday", recorded a year or so after "Imagine" and not too long after "Give Peace A Chance". (And no, he didn't mean these words ironically):
They've got a lot to learn
-- John Lennon, "Sunday, Bloody Sunday"
Perhaps he and Yoko were undergoing tribal scream therapy.
Anyway, what else to expect from a guy who turned the Communist Manifesto into a piano sing-a-long ("Imagine")?
Nevertheless, he could still consistently manage some rather good tunes and memorable lyrics. So Rest in Peace, John Lennon, even if you were not quite the Man of Peace the fans like to celebrate.
