A man stands on the corner holding a signPeople yell at him as they drive byI wonder what they read, made them so upsetI looked at the sign and all it said:One word: PeaceIn the Neighborhood, PeaceOne Word: PeaceIn my own backyard, PeaceA man in a foreign land kneels to prayAnd wonders where the bombs will fall todayOur leaders tell me to fear him you seeLove conquers all is what I believeOne word: PeaceIn the neighborhood, PeaceOne word: PeaceIn My Own backyard, PeaceEverybody's talking about itEverybody's got to have their sayBut to achieve it, there is only one wayAnd it starts with me and the word and the word is:PeaceIn the neighborhoodOne word: PeaceIn My Own backyardPeaceOne Word[Lead break]One word: PeaceIn the neighborhood, PeaceOne word: PeaceIn My Own backyard, Peace
