"If you have some peace songs or something" the voice on the telephone said to me
"Maybe you could play them at our multicultural gathering.
We'll have some food and speakers and lots of flags," they said to me
"Hanging from the port-a-staging, rimming the perimeter of our
Temporary, multicultural, pluralistic harmony
Everyone can come along, so will you be there to sing with me?"

But I don't know any peace songs sister, all of these words come from war
And I can't sing any love songs brother, I never saw anything they were good for
So how do we go on?

How can we sing peace songs when there is no peace?
Can we just campaign on the weekends for their release?

I heard some people talking 'bout a rally to save some old-growth trees
They couldn't organize, I guess there's just a lot more breeze
So play us a peace song or something bound to make these voices sing
All the way on home, driving fast as they can away from their
Temporary, multicultural, pluralistic society
"Everyone can come along so will you be there to sing with me?"

But I don't know any peace songs sister, all of these words come from war
And I can't sing any love songs brother, I can't sing love songs anymore
So how do we go on?

How can we sing peace songs when there is no peace?
Can we just campaign on the weekends for their release?
How can we sing peace songs when there is no peace?
Call me when the killing and the fighting cease

"If you have some peace songs or something," the voice on the telephone said to me
"Everyone can come alongÂ…."
