Teach Peace
— Thomas Alan Connor

It’s hard to place a value
On a setting sun
Or a healthy child walking
And learning how to run
Non-tangible are things
We hold so dear
Like love and hope and friends
Or the shedding of a tear

Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
You know that it’s true

No promises are kept
If we can’t commit
To the cause of oneness
A feeling of bliss
No axis has it’s center
If it can’t decide
Which direction it should go
Because of internal pride

Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
You know that it’s true

Maybe we can see through the lies
And break through the barriers
That cage our lives
It’s not the might of muscle
We need to choose
But more the might of mind
Or peace will lose

Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
Teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace
Teach peace
We’ve got to teach peace
Everybody we’ve got to teach peace

You know that it’s something we’ve got to do
We’ve got to see it through
