60. Let's Stop Making Weapons

1 Suffering 'round the world, carnage and so much fear
Coming from something ugly, something that we make here
It's not our movies or veggies, or cars we proudly display
Or anything we are making in a ""Love Thy Neighbor"" way
We hide it cuz it's shameful, but we make them ev'ryday.

The world can have our movies, our veggies and our cars
But let's stop making weapons, 'cuz that's not who we are

2 Conflicts can be resolved, and in a healing way
Simply ask any teacher, they do it ev'ryday
Or ask the auto mechanic, the veggie farmer and son
And others that we look up to, who refuse to own a gun
A diff'rent way of thinking, but the thinking must get done . [Refrain]
