Purchased Are The Weapons

Are we in the same 'thang' to maintain gains,
Or...
Are we just,
Reaching for a peace.
But...
Seeking destruction.

On every shore and border where the water flows,
Do we...
Seek the peace,
Or...
Fake it just to make a destruction.

Everybody says they wish a peace to grow,
But...
Purchased are the weapons.

Everybody says they wish a peace to know,
But...
Purchased are the weapons.
And...
A feeding on deceptions.

Everybody says they wish a peace to grow.
And everybody says they wish a peace to know,
But...
Purchased are the weapons.

Everybody talks about a peace they wish.
And everybody talks about a peace they miss.
And everybody says that peace is on their list,
But...
Purchased are the weapons.

Are we in the same 'thang' to maintain gains,
Or...
Are we just,
Reaching for a peace.
But...
We-seek-destruction.

On every shore and border where the water flows,
Do we...
Seek the peace,
Or...
Fake it just to make a destruction.

Everybody talks about a peace they wish.
And everybody talks about a peace they miss.
And everybody says that peace is on their list,
But...
Purchased are the weapons.

Everybody talks about a peace they wish.
And everybody talks about a peace they miss.
And everybody says that peace is on their list,
But...
Purchased are the weapons.
