lyrics

Lyrics:

When I lift my rifle and take aim at you
The bullet is for me
Would there be armies teaching young soldiers to be cruel
And could a government start world war III
Knowing all that I do I do unto myself

We fight our neighbors, we say they're wrong, we're right
To justify our attack
We need to wake up and lay our judgement aside
Let's turn this ship around, let's leave destruction's track
Choose to be happy instead of being right

The same old story repeats itself
And here's what's going on
Our minds are stuck in constant warfare with ourselves
For thousands of years we've been singing the same old songs
Guess we all have to find us a brand new choir

We are all family and truth is only One
And love is what we are
And true forgiveness transmutes our past, it will be undone
And we'll be smiling again in the remembrance of who we are
We'll be living together in peace and harmony

It only takes one person creating world peace
This knowledge is profound
If I'm at peace the world around me will be at peace
It is not the other way around
Peace begins with me, peace within is world peace

Peace begins with me, peace within is world peace,
it has to start with me
Here's what I can do, to make a change come true,
start saying "I Love You"
