Lyrics
An op ed in the paper, some write a book, Song or a poem, yeh Berrigans took A hammer to a missile; ready to go to jail; Frances is looking for a fence to scale Civil disobedience, feel the marchin in our feet; Put a flower in the barrel of a gun in the street Pentagon papers to Wikileaks; Truth to power with the courage that you speak Honor the people who work for peace No more Pentagon palms to grease Images of war are all around A Peace Memorial, we need in this town. Witness in Nicaragua, Cuba too; At the Venezuelan Embassy the Brown Shirts after you March on the Pentagon and DNC At the SOA and the Company At the air force base, my truck is a stage Everybodys there, doesnt matter your age Wally and Nita say you dont gotta pay For bullets & bombs to blow us away. Honor the people who work for peace No more Pentagon palms to grease Images of war are all around A Peace Memorial, we need in this town. Catonsville, King of Prussia, any venue; Jeju Island, Raytheon, Menwith Hill, will do Kings Bay, Oak Ridge, Bath Shipyard, GE General Dynamics in Groton, CT No more war toys, make your home a DMZ Role model resistance - what you can be Resist with Code Pink, Global Network, VFP Resign your career with the military Honor the people who work for peace No more Pentagon palms to grease Images of war are all around A Peace Memorial, we need in this town. A Peace Memorial to Peace, we need in this town.
