If only love
Could end the confusion
(end the confusion)
Or is it just one more illusion
And is it pacem in terris
(or is it just)
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa
(one more illusion)

Well if you want to have great love
Youve got to have great anger
Well if you want to have great love
Youve got to have great anger
When I see innocent folks shot down
Should I just shake my head and frown
Oh, oh pacem in terris
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa

Well if you want to hit the target square
(well if you want to hit the target square)
You better not have
(you better not have)
Better not have thine anger
(thine anger)
Or else itll be just one more time
(well if you want to hit the target square)
Where the correction creates another crime
(you better)

Well if you want to hit the target square
(oh oh pacem in terris)
You better not have thine anger
(mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa)
Or else it will be just one more time
The correction creates another crime

(oh eve)

Oh eve

You tell adam
(oh eve)
Next time he asks you you say
(you tell adam)
Baby its cold outside
(next time he asks you you say)
Whats the password to come inside
(baby its cold outside)
You say oh oh pacem in terris
(whats the password to come inside)
Pacem in terris
(whats the password to come inside)
(you say oh oh pacem in terris)
(mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa)
(hey wa)
(hey wa)

Oh eve
Go tell adam
Weve got to build a new garden
Oh eve
Go tell adam
Weve got to build a new garden
Weve got to get working on a building
A decent home for all of gods children
Oh, oh pacem in terris
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa

Well if music could only bring peace
Well Id only be a musician
Yeah if music could only bring peace
Id only be a musician
Yeah if songs could do more than dull this pain
And oh melodys break these chains well
Yeah yeah pacem in terris
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa

Oh, oh pacem in terris
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa
Oh, oh pacem in terris
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa
Four thousand languages in this world
Well it means the same thing to every boy and girl
Oh, oh pacem in terris
Mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa

(love alone)
(could save the world from disaster)
(now if only love could end the confusion)
(well I said you)
(is it one more illusion now)
(oh, oh pacem in terris)
(mir, shanti, salaam, hey wa)
