lyrics

Peace! (Give the people the power back)
Music & lyrics: J.C. Schütz.
J.C. Schütz.


Enough now, we've had enough
I don't know your rules, but I can tell a bluff
From what's true, from what's real
To us your game has absolutely no appeal
Whatsoever, what's so clever
About never being honest in a deal?
It's time to stop now, it's time to stop
It's time to stop now, it's time to stop

Give the people the power back
We're tired of your greed
Give the people the power back
It's peace we really need
Peace!

To be honest, and we need to be straight with eachother
Not a good thing ever came out of hate
A selfish mind is like barren soil
The seed is there, but we need to toil
But we want everything to come for free
And our self is all we ever try to see
It's time to change now, it's time to change
It's time to change now, it's time to change

Give the people the power back
We're tired of your greed
Give the people the power back
It's peace we really need
Peace!

We treat our planet with disrespect
We live a lifetime but we never once reflect
What goes around sure comes around
We're on a route that's been ruthlessly unbound
"Free the market, free the world, no state control"
Please your ego, get your fill and sell your soul
It's time to stop now, it's time to stop
It's time to stop now, it's time to stop

Give the people the power back
We're tired of your greed
Give the people the power back
It's peace we really need
– Everybody now!
Give the people the power back
We're tired of your greed
Give the people the power back
It's peace we really need
Peace!
