Chet Powers

Love's is but the song we sing and fear's the way we die.
You can make the mountains ring or make the angels cry.
Know the dove is on the wing and you need not know why.

Chorus:
C'mon, people. Smile on your brother. Hey, let's get together and love one another right now.

Some may come and some may go and we shall surely pass.
When the one who left us here returns for us at last.
We are just a moment's sunlight, fading on the grass.

(Chorus)

If you hear the song I sing, then you must understand,
You hold the key to love and fear. It's in your tremb'ling hand.
One key unlocks them both, you know, and it's at your command.

(Chorus, repeat 1st verse and chorus)

    Bill hicks' classic show-ender certainly pays recognition to the choice in question in "lrt's get together," and vividly applies color to its relevance and deeper implications to our ability to recognize why there is a discrepancy between love and fear. His quote, version from "revelations" follows:

    "the world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round; it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun... For a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: "is this real, or is this just a ride? " and other people have remembered, and they come back to us, and they say, "hey - don't worry, don't be afraid -ever- because, this is just a ride. " and we... Kill those people hahaha! "shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride - shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry! Look at my big bank account, and my family! This just has to be real! "... But it's just a ride. And we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok? Jesus - murdered; martin luther king - murdered; malcolm x - murdered; gandhi - murdered; john lennon - murdered; reagan... Wounded haha! But it doesn't matter because: it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride: take all that money that we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace. "
