    Lyrics

    Heaven on Earth
    We need it now
    I'm sick of all of this
    Hanging around
    Sick of sorrow
    Sick of pain
    Sick of hearing again and again
    That there's gonna be
    Peace on Earth

    Where I grew up
    There weren't many trees
    Where there was we'd tear them down
    And use them on our enemies
    They say that what you mock
    Will surely overtake you
    And you become a monster
    So the monster will not break you

    And it's already gone too far
    Who said that if you go in hard
    You won't get hurt

    Jesus could you take the time
    To throw a drowning man a line
    Peace on Earth
    Tell the ones who hear no sound
    Whose sons are living in the ground
    Peace on Earth
    No whos or whys
    No-one cries like a mother cries
    For peace on Earth
    She never got to say goodbye
    To see the color in his eyes
    Now he's in the dirt
    That's peace on Earth

    They're reading names out over the radio
    All the folks the rest of us won't get to know
    Sean and Julia, Gareth, Anne and Breda
    Their lives are bigger, than any big idea

    Jesus can you take the time
    To throw a drowning man a line
    Peace on Earth
    To tell the ones who hear no sound
    Whose sons are living in the ground
    Peace on Earth

    Jesus this song you wrote
    The words are sticking in my throat
    Peace on Earth
    Hear it every Christmas time
    But hope and history won't rhyme
    So what's it worth?
    This peace on Earth

    Peace on Earth
    Peace on Earth
    Peace on Earth
