What if your enemy ceased to exist?
One day the battle wasn't there
Nothing lurking in the morning mist
No missiles aimed into the air

What's to be done with soldiers you enlist?
Who sharpen arrows in daily grind
In rusted armor, stand to be dismissed
They wait for you to change your mind

What am I without you to oppose?
Who am I without my foe?
Clear the air like scattering crows
Time for peace now; Let it go; Let it go; Let it go

Claiming lands with flags unfurled
Which is yours and which is mine?
Where are the keys to liberate the world?
In your pocket all the time

What does it look like to live and let live?
Why ask why it's just as well
What does it feel like to truly forgive?
Heaven knows war is hell

What am I without you to oppose?
Who am I without my foe?
Clear the air like scattering crows
Time for peace now; Let it go; Let it go; Let it go

Disagreements written in the sand
Long forgotten what for
Loosen your grip and open your hands
Shake off the dream of endless war

Deep inside you a place of peace
Never injured by the fray
Where only love exists, only release
Let the dark birds fly away

What am I without you to oppose?
Who am I without my foe?
Clear the air like scattering crows
Time for peace now; Let it go; Let it go; Let it go

Peacetime now, Peacetime now, Peacetime now....
