Album Cover


“This song was inspired by the Greg Allen Interview discussing the Earth’s need for renewable energy.
I guess when you really start thinking about the world it’s like ripples on a pond and war and destruction of any kind goes hand in hand with ripping up rainforests to make more junk mail.

peace


Pro peace, pro planet, pro humanity song, or wishful thinking...”
I’m holdin’ the post
and I’m runnin’ for freedom
No political road, no
Just a hunch of a feelin’
Too old is the war
Too young our redemption
Too sorry the state of the world
and it’s too sorry to mention

Where there were those that would stand up and count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
by the hands that fight to own more

I’m nobody’s choice
and I’m nobody’s monkey
But I have a voice
And I know you don’t want me
I’ll say what I will
and I’ll sing with conviction
There’s a flag on the hill
“Peace wins the Election”

Where there were those that would stand up and count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
by the hands that fight to own more..

I won’t sit on the fence
I won’t call for no plannin’
This world should be friends
and stand up for the planet
I won’t tire of the toil
I won’t swing on the glory
Between humans and soil
There’s a beautiful story

Where there were those that would stand up and count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
by the hands that fight to own more

Where there were those that would stand up and count
Count themselves in for the haul
Now only rivers of money are washed
by the hands that fight to own more..

Oh we’re in for the long haul
Pull up a chair
We’re in for the long haul
We all gotta pull
We’re in for the long haul yeah
Peace wins the election ..
