Peace is in that banner unfurled
Shouting out your battle cry:
Love and live and don't deny...
Worldly weapons you never see
No bulky tanks or artillery
But rather lyrics from your song
Are the rounds you bring along.
While armies scamper here and there
You are seen to kneel in prayer
Peace on earth: good will to man
You plead, you bargain best you can
All the world could stop the hate
And stay the hands that are irate
But we are selfish, full of greed
We're not wanting to bend or cede
Remove the blinders from our eyes
And use the wisdom from the skies
To change the patterns of our ways
And move the darkness from our days.
