peace and love

© words and music :   garnett betts

thought you had the right to be wrong

have you been away so long

so, you’re only human after all

but there’s a language we expect

lines of baggage to inspect

lives to be listened to

are you just a patriot

coming home?

don’t be taken aback

we could all be attacked

it’s a brave new world from here on

but what goes on underground

stays underground

and who steps around

gets around what you thought

was written down in stone!

 chorus :

   we’re busy making paradise

   at twice the price

   so we can sell you

   peace and love at home

              peace and love at home

though every detoured founding sentence

still wrings out some repentance

protest is admired but not condoned

but we’re all in this together

so you’ll never be alone

there’s a roof above us all

thank God for peace and love at home

chorus :

   we’re busy making paradise

   at twice the price

   so we can sell you

   peace and love at home

              peace and love at home

 bridge :

     we all have our own lives to lead

     liberty to dream the dream

     still we believe

     this world can be a better place

    someday we’ll know no more

    a child left behind

    a veteran asking why

    kids’ll ask “what’s a refugee

    a roadside device?

    what did you use war for?”

     chorus :

   we’re busy making paradise

   at twice the price

   so we can sell you

   peace and love at home

              peace and love at home

   peace and love

   peace and love at home
