Seek The Peace


Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
And wants you more to be defeated,
Than to bring you victory.

Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
And wants you more to be defeated,
Than to bring you victory.

Rip your conflicts apart.
Diminish them from your heart.
And...
Seek the peace.
Peace you'll keep.
Only peace can defeat that beast.

Rip your conflicts apart.
Diminish them from your heart.
And...
Seek the peace.
Seek the peace.
Seek the peace.
Peace you'll keep!
Only peace can defeat that beast.
Only peace can defeat that beast.
Only peace can defeat that beast.

Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
Unleash that beast that you keep.
It wants to knock you off your feet.
And...
Seek the peace.
Seek the peace.
Only peace can defeat that beast.

    It is easy to say, Brother Lawrence. the beast in the people can't be controlled unless they are physically ill and chemically dozed...spiritually strong is still a question? (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
