The vocalist sings of love,
between husband and wife,
love between nations and
dreams of peace
He sings his heart out
black mascara like tears on his cheeks
the stage is hot, he sweats
He is blinded by lights
but he sings for peace and love
hoping someone would listen

later
it is night
he walks home
people do not understand why an artist
chooses to be differnt
they circle around him
call him Satan worshiper
they throw stones at him

he refuses to fight back
He wishes peace upon them
He wishes love to surround them
