A bird of peace flies overhead Its gentle sounds bring harmony and hope to the people below A man with a grin turns away Fools all of them A tiny thing with frail wings is no match for hate Flying above with its message of peace The beautiful bird soars high People watch and suddenly cry It falls with agonising pain as the man with the gun shoots again Hope and peace are once more destroyed People turn away A silent gasp and a triumphal cry as the bird of peace takes to the sky Its wings and chest are held high Hope and peace are a magical thing and men with guns Don't understand a thing Only when the last human dies will darkness and despair cloud the skies.
