People Can't Give Their Conflicts Up


Why can't there always be a peace.
And why not..
Have it everywhere that we go.
And why not...
Drop every weapon we found to keep,
To bury in a ditch or a hole.

And why do...
People find the time to be bitter.
And why do...
People find the time to berate,
And hate.
And not admit they wish to escape.

And why is it,
People find no time for a peace.
And why not..
Have it released where they go.
And why not...
Drop every weapon they find to keep,
To bury in a ditch or a hole.

And why do...
People find the time to be bitter.
And why do...
People find the time to berate,
And hate.
And not admit they wish to escape.

And why do...
People find the time to be bitter.
And why do...
People find the time to berate,
And hate.
And not admit they wish to escape.

And why is it,
People find no time for a peace.
And why not..
Have it released where they go.
And why not...
Drop every weapon they find to keep,
To bury in a ditch or a hole.

And why is it,
People can't give their conflicts up.
And why is it,
People choose to be so corrupt.
And why is it,
People deny they cheat and lie...
And seem to love to dig deeper ruts.

And why is it,
People find no time for a peace.
And why not..
Have it released where they go.
And why not...
Drop every weapon they find to keep,
To bury in a ditch or a hole.

And why is it,
People can't give their conflicts up.
And why is it,
People choose to be so corrupt.
And why is it,
People deny they cheat and lie...
And seem to love to dig deeper ruts.

And why is it,
People can't give their conflicts up.
And why is it,
People choose to be so corrupt.
And why is it,
People deny they cheat and lie...
And seem to love to dig deeper ruts.
And why is it,
People can't give their conflicts up.
And why is it,
People love to dig deeper ruts.
And why is it,
People can't give their conflicts up.
And why is it,
People choose to be so corrupt.
And why is it,
People deny they cheat and lie...
And seem to love to sit on their butts!
