Heaven on earth
I'm sick of all of this
Sick of sorrow
Sick of hearing again and again
Peace on earth
Where I grew up
Where there was we'd tear them down
They say that what you mock
And you become a monster

Who said if you go in hard

To throw a drowning man a line?
Tell the ones who hear no sound
Peace on earth
No-one cries like a mother cries
She never got to say goodbye
Now he's in the dirt

All the folks the rest of us won't get to know
Their lives are bigger than any big idea
Jesus, can you take the time
Peace on earth
Whose sons are living in the ground

The words are sticking in my throat
Hear it every Christmas time
So what's it worth?

Peace on earth
