Let Us Have Peace

Slow, hymn-like
let us have peace
When all mankind forgets
But that time's so far away
Death cries and epithets
and the meaning of war

But if we would all live as one
why do we hate?
We, unthinking, let politicians darken our fate

Then men in peace shall say
Peace without boundary lines
"I will love today; for I am alive"

But if we would all live as one
why do we hate?
We, unthinking, let politicians darken our fate

Why fool yourselves and comment:
"Wars will end on battlefields."
We can't, with guns and bombs,
Make love, not war!

Thousands of years have gone
(No excuses justify)
And not one thing's been done
The next to insure.

Let's play a game tonight
And pretend it's real, not play
We'll bet as we switch the light
We'll again see the day.

But if men would all live as one why do we fear?
Let's stop listening, let's start thinking
Let's stop listening, let's start thinking
Let's make it clear!

"Now break it up, you two!"
Will always work when children fight.
We've got growing up to do
Let us have peace!
