In the name of Love

In the name of Love I sue for peace.

I reach out with branch of olive.

Sign your treaties that fighting may cease.

Open wide the cage and free the dove.

Remove iron fist from silken glove.

From servitude and bondage release.

Be the Leaders we are worthy of.

In the name of Love I sue for peace.

How many palms do I have to grease?

Sandbox antics, games of push and shove.

Be ruled not by chaos and caprice.

I reach out with branch of olive.

Singing in a different octave.

Place your armor on the mantelpiece.

By whatever God here in above.

Sign your treaties that fighting may cease.

Or find your fate as did Sparta of Greece.

In a goblet of blood and foxgloveThe future of human-kind you lease.

Open wide the cage and free the dove.

Turn other cheek when push comes to shove.

There is no golden fleece, no golden geese.

Be the Leaders we are worthy of.

Melt down all weapons, sign armistice.

In the name of Love.
