"Lay Down Your Swords, Boys"

Well lay down your swords, boys, lay down your guns
A new days a comin first sight of the sun Itll shine like a beacon on whoever shall love While sweet baby Jesus rides the wing of a dove
Now our color filled country is a giant strip mall Its a joke in the mens room misspelled on the stall
But when its all over, aint no colors anyway Like an old silent movie, only black, white and gray
Lay down your swords, boys, lay down your guns A new days a comin first sight of the sun
Itll shine like a beacon on whoever shall love While sweet baby Jesus rides the wings of a dove
Well the bad guys are gone, boys,
we run most of them down
when we flattened the hillsides
and we pummeled the ground
And speaking on bombs, boys,
you'd better believe
That its better to give boys,
than it is to receive
Lay down your swords, boys,
lay down your guns
A new days a comin first sight of the sun
Itll shine like a beacon on whoever shall love
While sweet baby Jesus rides the wings of a dove
Now Old Glorys still flyin, just like before
And your kids aint believin in nothin no more
And you cant really blame em,
same shit we were fed
From the pages of schoolbooks
to the Bibles we read
Lay down your swords, boys, lay down your guns
A new days a comin first sight of the sun
And itll shine like a beacon
On whoever shall love
While sweet baby Jesus rides the wings of a dove
