Lyrics:

PEACEFUL DEEDS

They're bombing the streets of Boston
In Syria, more of the same
It's so easy to get lost in
The fear, vengeance and blame

A murder suicide in Brooklyn
Dozens killed by explosions in Iraq
No matter how far away we look, man
There's nothing gonna bring these people back

Chorus:
But on this same day, somewhere
On this very same day
A flower blooms
A mother smiles
A father comforts a crying child
Ordinary people
Doing what we need
For every act of violence
A hundred peaceful deeds

A hundred and sixty dead in Damascus
And that was only today
How I wish we could all get past this
Need to kill whatever stands in our way

[Chorus 2x ..A thousand peaceful deeds, ...A million peaceful deeds]
