HOLD YOUR PEACE

hold your peace, hold your fire
stand by lakes, electric wires
sun go down, just got tired
silent night, chords and choirs
broken hands, hands for hire
one small rock, world entire
some in coffins, some on pyres
barely gone, thought required
drunken priest, sober squire
you told truth, you're a liar
hold your peace, hold your fire 3xs

hold your peace, hold your fire
disarm now, drop your swords
hidden closet, open doors
you just moved in, but its not yours
useless struggle, pointless words
got no money, can't afford
can't break even?, ask the Lord
manna manna, moving toward
come in droves, come in hordes
heal the people, birds that soar
hold your peace, hold your fire 3xs

hold your peace, hold your fire
Elija's coming, he's right downstairs
is anybody ready, does anybody care
hey every body, please be ware
you saw signs, then you got scared
but no way, can you prepare
don't act different, wear what you wear
be who you are, it'll all be fair
I look at you, I don't mean to stare
all stars are numbered, every hair
hold your peace, hold your fire 3xs

hold your peace, hold your fire
jump in rivers, walk for miles
walk in deserts, clean your files
find the patience, it'll be a while
it'll be tomorrow, end of trial
verdict given, stacked in pile
wolves and jackles, poison reptiles
will sleep with lambs, and with the child
let go of reigns, take off bridle
you feel calm, you feel wild
hold your peace, hold your fire.....
