lyrics

There’s violence in the air tonight, it’s brewing up a storm
In the cold, we stand united, trying to keep eachother warm
The truncheons give percussion, but their beat’s not one of peace
It’s a hard macabre march advancing down these crowded streets
And arm in arm, we sing our anthems; arm in arm we cry
That we have won this war already because love is on our side
Though we know that love has never won a war before
If we stand strong and tall, we may just have something worth standing for

We prayed to any god who’d listen
“Help us find the peace we’re missing, please”
So sick of living on our knees

There’s violence in the air tonight, a riot on the streets
We’re spitting blood and desperate words through a cage of broken teeth
We’re all in love and all in war, all with our beliefs
So beautiful, so passionate, such a primitive release
And as the riot vans come rolling, and we scatter like leaves
The sirens sing a symphony to bring about the “peace”
Sixty sticks and shields against protesting pacifists
Just pleading for a respite from the riot police

We prayed to any god who’d listen
“Help us find the peace we’re missing”
We never had an answer given
‘Til we stood up and found a reason for
Love to win the war
