Picture and Lyrics of the Week (Week 3)

Lately, I feel disheartened. I feel like no matter what I say or think, the currently regressive regime in the US will be heard. Their spin will be put on their stories. I feel like we have lost. I feel like that the days when Americans wanted Peace are over. I though that was the whole point to all of this...PEACE. Not CAPITAL gain. Why aren't we working for Peace?

Don't get me wrong, I will not be giving up. I will continue to work for peace. I will continue to expose the Bush regime for the criminals and assholes they are! We will win in time, but now, I want to refocus some energy on the struggle for Peace.

So, here's the lyrics of the week!


You do not speak for me
When you say let's go to war
You do not act for me
When you go to kill some more

All I want is peace
All I want is peace

It's time to evolve
As a species, as a family
It's time to resolve
Our conflicts peacefully

When will you speak for me
When will you work for peace
When will our hearts be free
Of all this tragedy

All we want is peace
All we want is peace

It's time to transform
Our warfare into healing
May peace now be born
May we open, may we feel it

May all hearts open now
And grow in understanding
And teach our children how
To live in harmony

All they'll know is peace
All they'll know is peace
