  PEACE ON EARTH

Well now, goodbye my friend, it was good to know you
I hope you understand
Twenty-one years and I ain't got nothing
But I'm sitting here wondering if I can

Wishing and dreaming
Hoping and reaching
For things I was never meant to have
If my foolish life's a product of my gross misconceptions
Who's gonna give a damn?

I don't want peace on earth
I just wanna go—
I just wanna go home

Well, I know I never was much more than you expected
I expect now I won't disappoint
But my dreams are not as hollow as the empty world I saw
Though I guess I never did get the point
Life cannot just be the only option left
The only thing you can count on in this world is regret

I don't want peace on earth
I just wanna go—
I just wanna go home

Right world, wrong time
They say to me, "Hang cool teddy bear" …

Best thing to do is just feed them fear
Get them thinking about there, and forget about here
Don't try to fight, don't try to win
When they knock you down you gotta get back up again

I don't wanna be an end
To break this back and bleed these hands
To take my strength and all I am
To steal my soul for all your plans
I, I don't wanna be
But I'm not so self-righteous to think that I would not take 100,000 lives
To see, oh, my mother's eyes
And trace that southern smile
I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die
I dont want much more than a working man deserves:
Just a life worth living
And a death worth dying for, oh

I don't want peace on earth
I so want peace on earth
I don't want peace on earth
Oh, I so want peace on earth

And I just wanna go home
I just wanna go home

I just wanna go home
I just wanna go home
I just wanna go home
I just wanna go home

I don't want peace on earth.
