I dream of peace
make a blessed world where i can be a child
do you dream of peace?
open up your morning light
and say a little prayer for I
I don't want to wait
for our lives to be over
in these garden of white crosses
we are children of poverty trying to make a stand
I will risk my life 'cause it's all I have to lose
19 of us died, none of our bodies hit the floor
I ended up in California in an unknown grave
in these gardens of white crosses

Cover our eyes with clear blue skies,
Her head has been shaven,
She touches the number tattooed on her wrist,
“You won't survive”
Blood in all the streets, running like a flood,
So open up your morning light, and say a little prayer for I,
This one's for the Godfather, Duke, Ella, and the Count,
We are the children of poverty trying to make a stand,
Vanish just like smoke in autumn wind,
When footsteps from that Sunday march faded out into the dark,
No coloreds allowed unless you're playing in the show,
We are the children of poverty trying to make a stand,
Vanish just like smoke in autumn wind.

Hannah is dreaming
The mat on the floor says welcome, the sign on the door says no
If I'm lucky I will make it to a train
I will do the jobs Americans won't do
This train is bound for glory

Blood in all the streets, running like a flood
You say she's a Jew as though being born were a sin.
She's a pretty girl, do you hate her
Cause she's pieces of you?
War's a wicked bird that never comes to rest
I'll stand up on this stage as if it was my altar
I will risk my life cause it's all I have to lose
In these gardens of white crosses growing in the California sand.

This train is bond for glory,
there is one hundred people
gypsies, queers, and David's Stars.
She is an ugly girl does it make you want to kill her?
she's a pretty girl, does she make you want think nasty thoughts?
You say he's a fagot, does it make you want to hurt him?
You say he's a Jew as though being born were a sin.
Hannah is dreaming,
she stands with her brother
Her head has been shaved
by a block uniform
As she touches the number
tattooed to her wrist.
Blood in the streets, running like a flood
There's no where to hide, no where that I can go
Hiding from the planes and from the bombing
Fire from the sky, burning down my life
Can't you stop the war, bring it to a close
You are tall and strong and I am just a child
Say I'm good enough to play but not good enough to stay,
As I read the sign on your door it read,
No coloreds allowed unless you're playing in the show.
Had to finish their show and leave just because their skin was black.
In these gardens of white crosses
Growing in the California sand,
In the these gardens of white crosses
we are the children of poverty trying to make a stan

Gypsies, queers, and David's stars
Oh Jew, oh Jew, do you hate him
In the doors of the chambers
I dream of peace
Believe me I know the feeling
The melody blows in to ease the pain
In these gardens of white crosses
Growing in the California sand
I ended up in California in an unknown grave

This train is bound for glory
Hannah is dreaming
She stands with her brother
With thousands of men
Here is potential gone for good
Hoping I can find some work or possibly a friend
There are others who have made it here
I will gladly pick your peaches or clean your hotel
This train is bound for glory
In these gardens of white crosses growing in the California sand
Doctor doctor
Are you unkind

In our world, no one is treated the same
In our world, people that are different, are forced to hold their heads down in shame
People fear what they can't understand
They hurt the ones who are not the same way as others
Why should people have to live in fear?
We might be different, but we're meant to be here

Can't you stop the war?
Can't we live in peace?

When I see this kind of hatred
I die a little inside

Can't you stop the fighting?
Can't we live in peace?

There is a teacher who has no face
There is a builder who has no back
There is a runner who has no feet
There is a writer who has no voice

There is potential gone for good.

Can't you stop the hatred?
Can't we live in peace?

In an ocean of fire
Bombs are raining down

Can't you stop the prejudice?
Can't we live in peace?

War's a wicked bird
That never comes to rest

Open up your eyes and give up peace.

She stands with her brother
And took her first steps into this corridor of death
She reached out her hand, touching death itself
She saw a runner who has no feet
Wearing shrapnel in his skin
Razor and wire
He's wearing that anguish again
Doctor doctor
You said he's a faggot. Are you afraid you're the same?
Doctor doctor,
she's a pretty girl, do you want to tie her down?
Cause they're pieces of you
Fire from the sky, burning down their lives
She saw a teacher who had no face
There's no where to hide, no where that they can go
When I close my eyes I dream of peace
But when I see this hatred, I die a little inside
Here is a dancer, a healer, a thinker, a builder
Stacked like wood
Again she can't breathe

Hannah is sleeping
she's dreaming of a nice place
But when she wakes up she see's death staring right in her face.
The Nazi's are rounding up people fast
there's know where to run
but soon it will be me
ended up in an unknown grave
