Imagine We Keep the Lyrics in Mind

A lyrics refresher for all those athletes dressed in their national costumes and waving flags as Peter Gabriel sang "Imagine" during the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics:

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
I think the costumes are great, actually. And I have no problem with flags. But I have trouble believing that was what John Lennon had in mind when he wrote "Imagine there's no countries / It isn't hard to do."
