I think Watching the wheels is John answer on his later song "Help" is that quite right? :)

Among my many favourites of his is another one about America: when asked what he thought about it he said, "It's like Britain, only with buttons" (don't know what he meant, it just sounds so funny).
It's the start of a journey
To a much better place
And this wasn't bad
So a much better place
Would have to be special...

Lennon said:
I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?

This quote makes me laugh, 'cause it seems to me that John was so fond of fighting and insulting that he hardly has any right to teach others about peace and love. He's the greatest hypocrite I've ever heard of. Julian once said that himself.
Besides. I would like to hear him saying "war is over if you want it" after living in Israel for a while.
Same goes to "Give Peace a Chance".

If all the people wh oare fighting in the world just stopped for a minute and thought about "war is over if you want it", there'd be a bigger chance of peace in the world. If everybody wanted it, there would be peace. That's not hypocrisy, though quite just a dream that's unlikely to ever come true. Still, if that song made at least some people do something for peace as they coudl, it was worth it.
one sweet dream came true today!!!!!
