Peace Has Broken Out

This song is by Shaun Groves and appears on the album White Flag (2005).

I woke up like every day before and read the news
It was there in black and white with all the what's and whos
A headline so hard to fathom it just might be true
It claimed on every thoroughfare and avenue

Peace has broken out
In every heart
In every house
Peace has broken out
It started small
It drew a crowd
Peace has broken out

Well, they say it all began right down on Fifth and Main
When somebody thought of pushing back but walked away
Somehow the people gathered 'round just weren't the same
And as the crowd dispersed somebody heard 'em say

We'll watch the lambs and lions play
We've got no more flags to wave
All our rockets aim for stars
And the way things always should have been
Is just the way things are

No one's sure what happened next but on and on it went
From cubicles and classrooms to the president
Headed west and east and on to every continent
The whole world woke up to read how things are different
(Since)
