What would it have to take
for us all to see
what together our dreams would make
where do you think we'd be
if we all sang in harmony
to burn a flame in a candlelight
and know what we are doing is not right

When we look at another just to fight
do you think to **** another
will heal the heart of a mother
to say it's all for the love of God's glory
and was written in His final chapter
at the end of His story
when there's nothing left for us to wake

Do you believe it will make it alright
when you got a life in your control
or do you care to even know
that it could be your sister or brother
looking through a barrel of a loaded gun
to know he's going to die young
where you pull the trigger on the run

Do you believe this is where we belong
under a blood sky bleeding the sun
what is it in the end you will say
when our children all die young
afraid to look and face another day
when violence is only heard in a song
in places where they all use to play

We all speak the word of Peace
but for a life we'll take it please
it will be our pleasure to watch you bleed
to know you'll beg just to die young
where the Angels have already sung
with the hatred already planting the seed
