What can one do to fight for peace?
Get out in the street, march with your feet.
What can you do if you oppose war?
Lay down your weapon and fight no more.

And if your politician is filled with hate,
vote for the other candidate.

For we really do have a choice
if we speak out and raise our voice
The sword will fall before the pen
if we stand together with a friend.

Fornicating for chastity
is like drinking for sobriety.
But fighting for peace is what we must do
if we want life on earth to continue.
