Fighting is not my natural state.
I’m not prone to starting debates.
Peace is a deeply held conviction.

Lovingkindness is my predilection.
I’m very apt to seek compromise.
Avoiding war seems far more wise.

I don’t care who’s right or wrong.
I’d rather sit here and sing a song.
We can all agree to disagree.
Strike a truce so we can be free.

Surrender to our better nature.
Aim higher than the legislature.
Build humanity’s sanctuary.
Only fight for justice is necessary.
