    Lyrics

    [Written by Melanie Safka]

    Lay down lay down
    Lay it all down
    Let your white birds smile up
    At the ones who stand and frown
    Lay down lay down
    Lay it all down
    Let your white birds smile up
    At the ones who stand and frown

    We were so close there was no room
    We bled inside each others' wounds
    We all had caught the same disease
    And we all sang the songs of peace

    [Chorus:]
    Lay down lay down
    Lay it all down
    Let your white birds smile up
    At the ones who stand and frown
    Lay down lay down
    Lay it all down
    Let your white birds smile up
    At the ones who stand and frown

    What if I told you were stupid, destructive, soulless
    Callous, murderous, malignant, belligerent, ignorant
    Would you believe me would you like that
    Or would you prove me wrong and fight back
    I'd like to take the sunshine right from the sky
    And let it shine on you through my eyes
    You see we all in the same boat trying to float
    So everybody grab a oar we can make it to shore

    [Chorus]

    We were so close there was no room
    We bled inside each others' wounds
    We all had caught the same disease
    And we all sang the songs of peace

    Some came to sing
    Some came to pray
    Some came to keep the dark away
    So raise the candles high
    'Cause if you don't we could stay
    Black against the night
    So raise them higher again
    And if you do we could stay dry against the rain

    [Chorus (repeat)]
