Peace Not Greed Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

A lonely teenage daydream,
Of things that just might be,
A surreal kind of thinking,
Keeps on drifting in on me,
My twisted body is lifeless,
Not so their twisted minds,
Peace through power their motto,
Power through peace their crime,

Product of our environment (x8),

Maybe one day they will legalize weed,
In the year TWO "G" the planet could be deceased,
We plead to the police while we're beggin' on our knees,
In our hometown Cali with bears and green trees,
Birds and the bees, hot sand on the beach,
Shells in the sea and I'm living in peace,
Like a dog on a leash locked up with no key,
I gotta smoke under cover, Motherfuck the police,

Yeah, see the magic hand pull a rabbit from the hat,
The laws an illusion to symbolize that,
Putting us in jail fucking with us with their tax,
I can see the wires in the levitating act,
I can hear the lies and they're calling them facts,
I can see the bars and they're lookin all cracked,
I read between the lines but the lines are all crap,
I can feel the knife turning in my back,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

You are a sacred being of light,
Projected into reality for a purpose,
Demand the right to your moment,
In this holographic gift with no rules, no borders,
Except for those who you choose to accept and live by,

Abolish government means nothing to me,
Forget about god, he's not here to see,
We live by a system, a perfect mold,
People perfect people who are poor and old,
Lives were spent on a ladder of descent,
Working for nothing in this, in this world has meant
Presidents are named,
Presidents are labeled highest man on the government table,

America, land of the free,
Free to the power of the people in uniform (x2),

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

Society, fuck it!
I've had enough!
The system's full of crooks, straight up corrupt,
You look like a decoy bobbing like a duck,
And your money keeps em smokin on a BC Bluff,
You're caught up in the headlights of my V-Dub bus,
TSOL and the Kings about to even things up,
Your birds will take all the air out the sky,
Bring em down to our level,
You can run, can't hide,

Product of our environment (x8)

A lonely teenage daydream,
Of things that just might be,
A surreal kind of thinking,
Keeps on drifting in on me,
My twisted body is lifeless,
Not so their twisted minds,
Peace through power their motto,
Power through peace their crime,

The government keeps tight control over the population,
While the schools teach the kids restricted education,
Murder, rapes, thefts, and underage prostitution,
They got the war on pot, they got the wrong solution,

I wake and I bake, nowhere to escape,
Livin' life in a tank they invade my space,
Betrayed full of hate while they're shootin' all blanks,
Society's lost in a paranoid state,

It's the illusion of ownership, It's take what you can get,
The banks are the loan sharks and everyone's in debt,
And if you get ahead how quickly you forget,
You're hanging from a burning rope without a safety net,
They tax you when you sell,
They tax you when you buy,
They take half when you live,
They take half when you die,
These are the lies that they're stating as facts,
I can see the wires of the levitating act,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed,
See, it's hell,
Living in a cell,
Legalize the plant only time will tell,

I'm glad that I can read,
I'm glad that I can write,
I read their fuckin bullshit,
Every single night,
When off in my head went a little fuckin light,
It told me what was wrong it told me what was right,
World bank-Power and control,
Issuing the money and they're dollin' out the roles,
Charging what they want to with the money, the control,
Living in their nightmare, giving them your soul!
