World peace

What we all want is world peace
we want our share, we want our piece
we see it in the old veterans face
we visit its grace in their final resting place
we glance at its prize, in a babies stare
we climb its jagged pass, up the mountain stairs
we are taught from start to finish we are nearly there
we look to the dry countries, a wasteland is theirs
In pools of blood and streams of hate
the bones of the innocent wait
a higher power we yearn to lift our cruel weight
on the tombstone of a once loved man
his remembrance so sure
we look to the children of tomorrow
they stand and wait for the call
they stand and wait on a peaceful shore

World peace
