Words & music by Steve Thorngate

lyrics

Lost our way,
Our life as neighbors.
Needed someone
To end our strife,
One to blame,
One to bear it,
To be the victim
And bring us peace—
Bring back our peace.

Human one:
Walked among us,
Made us restless,
Disturbed the peace.
All our strife,
All our conflict,
All our violence:
We set it on him.
We put it on him.

You said no:
No to violence,
No to killing.
You showed us no.
Our way of death:
We do not need it.
You do not want it.
You just want peace,
A deeper peace.

All our strife,
All our violence—
Can you undo it
And give us peace,
Your truest peace?
