LOVE, ROT & RUST

 
LOVE ALONE’S JUST NOT ENOUGH
LOVE ALONE’S A BUST
LOVE ALONE CAN’T FIX
A WORLD OF ROT AND RUST

SOME PEOPLE LIVE WITH HATE
DEEP DOWN IN THEIR HEART
THEY’D RATHER ARGUE THAN TO LOVE
AND IT’S TORN THIS WORLD APART

HATE COMES IN SO MANY FORMS
NOT JUST BULLETS, BOMBS OR KNIVES
IT EXISTS FOR ONE SIMPLE TASK
TO BRING HELL INTO OUR LIVES

SO WHAT CAN WE DO TO CURE A WORLD
OF AGONY AND STRIFE
HOW CAN WE ENDURE ALL OF IT
HOW DO WE SAVE THIS LIFE

WE NEED TO GATHER LOVE’S ALLIES
PEACE AND UNITY, KINDNESS AND TRUST
THIS IS HOW WE CHIP AWAY
AT ALL THE ROT AND RUST

AND WHEN THEY LOOK AT YOU
WHEN THEY START TO JUDGE
SAY THIS IS WHO I AM
ON THAT I WILL NOT BUDGE

I’LL BRING LOVE AND HOPE TO ALL
EVERY SEX AND RACE
I’LL BRING THE LOVE TO THOSE
WHO CAN’T EVEN STAND MY FACE

SO WE NEED LOVE AND ALL ITS FRIENDS
TO LEAVE HATE DOWN IN OUR DUST
ONLY THEN WILL WE OVERCOME
ALL THE ROT AND RUST
