We're gonna walk together arm in arm
with peace in our hearts. (repeat)

Gonna walk together arm in arm
so our sisters and brothers won't come to any harm.
We know we got peace in our hearts.

Gonna walk with every color and tribe
with peace in our hearts. (repeat)

Gonna walk with every color and tribe
cause we’re stronger together
when we’re on the same side.

We know we got peace in our hearts.

We're gonna stand for the earth and the children too
with peace in our hearts. (repeat)

Gonna stand for the earth and the children too
‘cause it will take everyone
to make this dream come true.
We know we got peace in our hearts.

We’re gonna stare into the face of the hateful mind
with peace in our hearts. (repeat)

We’re gonna stare into the face of the hateful mind.
All we gotta do is let our love light shine.
We know we got peace in our hearts.


We're gonna walk together arm in arm
with peace in our hearts. (repeat)

Gonna walk together arm in arm
so our sisters and brothers
won't come to any harm.
We know we got peace in our hearts.

I call bullshit. No one who has had to employ violence in the routine events of the day embraces the call to violence. You know who does though? People who have never been in a fight. They are the biggest faux - tough guys who talk shit but confine their protests to shit posting. Now make a donation to RP for your silly transgressions.


Might be useful to remember that Gandhi considered himself a "fighter" and worked to create "non-violent weapons." Determination to not allow evil to spread is critical. A violent response to that evil will certainly have some significant problems, however.
you see...the song title itself makes for a happy day
nice peace piece

thanks, Sis 
Lyrics good. Execution awful.

Maybe when we feel the need to over rule another’s perspective with our own, we might first put ourselves in the other’s shoes.. search our experience for and try to offer up some common ground to start? Having said that, Trump was and is a man of triggering extremes, particularly when it comes to truth and his lack thereof. Challenging times. Luckily, we have music to help allay our anxieties along the way.

Exactly.  They hate having to look into mirrors and seeing themselves.  Peace in our hearts while we burn down small businesses, yell at police and throw frozen bottles of water and fireworks at them, shoot lasers into their eyes, even end up killing people for wearing the wrong hat.
 
Peace in our hearts.  Right.  Hypocrites.


As opposed to the heavily armed assholes that stormed the Capital and were shocked it didn't overthrow the government...

The Surgeon General does not endorse, nor indeed recommend, putting peas in your heart.

That was my creed, but no longer.  I cannot stand by while people support this disgusting orange pig's asshole; this includes four of my brothers.  I will not stand idly by while this orange piece of shit and his idiot rubes destroy my country.  No more peaceful hippy; you want a fight, you got it!

It's not at all overwhelmingly clear to me that the OP was actually advocating real violence rather than (perhaps) more active resistance? Certainly triggered an interestingly harsh response.
11 plays in the last month. It's a good tune for our times. Keep spreading the word, Bill.

And this is actually your name and you really want to be associated with this dreadful era in American history? I feel something like pity. How many associates of Obama were convicted  on child pornography charges? Give me a number!
Eliza and her enormously talented kid brother Tony would make a killer duo, kind of like The White Stripes reimagined. All they would need is a rhythm section ... 
Please everyone, give peas a chance, and visualise whirled peas. 
It's a tricky problem, being a pacifist in a world of swirling hatred (see various comments below). I'm reminded of 'Fight Test' by The Flaming Lips, though accept that their lyrics referred to matters a little less existential than those discussed here. Maybe we just have to hope that the march of education will solve the world's problems one by one and that these setbacks will vanish in time.
Peace in one's heart doesn't mean to be easily fooled or to be reluctant to defend oneself. Peace in your heart means you know that you're right, and what's right.

That's us. See you at the barricades.
Great to hear from the new one from wonderful Eliza Gilkyson. Thank you, Bill and Rebecca! Great choice.
Honors the worthy sentiments in this song by refraining from partisan bickering in this comment section.

Thank you and good day.
Based on how things are going in this country, I'm assuming this song is ironic?

I call BS. No peaceful hippy goes rabid moron that easily.

There was never any peace in your heart. Ask your brothers.

But assholes like Trump want you to be full of hate; it's what fires them up. They want a Culture War. They want to destroy democracy and the rule of law. Don't let them steal your peace. Civil disobedience works. It's the only way to face a brutal dictator (look at Belarus right now). Hate and violence is not the way to find peace. Peace is.
 

You misspelled Obama.
A poignant message for our troubled times.

Love in my heart for Eliza.

Impressively deep family musical roots. Brother Tony gets major props for his work with Lone Justice and X.
Great message, but music doesn't hold up for me, unfortunately.
wild anyway silence screamer
age ?
Wow! Sentiments for all Sentients. May all beings be able to take this to heart.
I think it's written for all of us.
c.
written for the protesters?
Thanks Eliza! Timeless , talented, and topical!
