Battle within, always fighting inside
Outrage, chaos, never ending rampage
Mercy saves my foolish heart, saves my pride
Perhaps with peace we can escape this rage

Which wrong, which right, which warfare must we fight
Waste blood, waste time. crying, trying to breathe
Oh peace, will you let me find joy tonight
Comfort my heart so I unclench my teeth

You hide from sight, unveil yourself I ask
Hold me through this painful night, bring me ease
My eyes do search for you needing one task
Carry my strain today, I beg you please

If one thing I ask, let it be my peace
One I could trust to bring this war to cease.
