Dall'album "Sun" del 2012. Ma francamente non sono sicuro che sia una canzone contro la guerra: decidete voi.

[...] Which brings us back to “Peace and Love.” If the Internet line didn’t tip you off that this wasn’t one of Marshall’s offcuts, “99 percent, y’all” should, as would the constant references to poverty that make so much more sense in the early 2000s than 2010s. You could call it a protest song — really, you could say the same of any closing cut called “Peace and Love” with a na-na-na chorus — but all she’s protesting for is her own continued relevance. “I’m in it to win,” she sings, and she means only herself, and she means there’s a loser; she knows there are stakes. Her “rap” is too brusque, and that would-be anthemic chorus is too pressed and dips into too sardonic an alto to galvanize anyone else.

Everybody got shit to pay
Can’t go lala with fafa hu-rah-rah
Gotta go dealing with Dada for nada
It ain’t appropriate that I’m stocked that I get
A hundred-thousand hits on the internet
But that don't mean a shit
Even if you're legitimate
I want to feel honey now, like I got money now
But that don't mean a shit
Even if you're legitimate

I used to have scrounge money, on the ground money
Choosing Black Flag was choosing a race
They had a name for us, it was despicable
So disrespectable, we're like the dirty chemical
We were so attracted to mappable
People just wanted us to blend in and fade
Oh you're a horror now, a visual foul
When I was a teen, I had incredible dreams
99% y'all, it's in the wall y'all
Constitution's fine you’re choosing a school
So your kids who’s spinnin’ the globe

Peace and love is a famous generation
I'm a lover but I'm in it to win
Peace and love is a famous generation
I'm a lover but I'm in it to win
Peace and love is a famous generation
I may be a lover, but I'm in it to win
Peace and love is a famous generation
I'm a lover but I'm in it to win
