I can't find no peace today no matter where I look
fighting and bickering the red phone is off the hook
I can't find no peace today not in the labs or nooks
no peace in the streets or palaces not even in the books

peace has to start with someone has to start right here with me
if I refuse to fight for your made up animosity
with hate and rhetoric maybe I can make it stick
don't need a violent end my friend it makes me sick

I don't need your war today its not what I covet most
I don't need your war today on any foreign coast
the oil of your prizes is not the enhancer of my dreams
and when tension rises and it all falls apart at the seems

I don't have no peace today because my family is dead
or being jailed because of wrong words because injustice rules instead
and war is just an excuse to rifle through the past
for treasures or a ruse to steal it all at last

Some cant find no food today because they've been robbed and controlled
we look the other way while they break the virtues they've extolled
there is poverty and disease world wide but we can only see our own holes
and our emptiness on the inside despite our wealth, we starve in our souls

I can't find no peace today no matter where I look
because my eyes are closed, Okay? and my words are being mistook
you refuse to see us all as one race and you wont concede right of place
and you would rather just erase all the good than admit to a mistake

peace has to start with someone has to start with me
if I refuse to fight for your made up animosity
with hate and rhetoric maybe I can make it stick
don't need a violent end my friend it makes me sick
