Track Name: Love Holds The Weapon
Nothing is serious
Love holds the weapon
A dead man is waking
The maid makes his bed

Children are laughing
But no one is clapping
Alone in a house
A mother is crying

No need to wait up
Our hearts have all gave up
The beds have been made
Flowers placed on the grave

I feel for my brothers
I long for my sister
I nursed from the mother
Old father of time

We sing for our shelter
We sing for old sorrow
We dance with the shadows
Of a yesterday gone-by
Track Name: Maria
Maria - you shine like the blade
Mi amigo - that carved out my name
Mi amour - the gardener of my heart
Senorita - la de da da da

We'll make our graves
Where ever we want to
and We'll sing out praise
To the Goddess of love

Maria - you're sharp as a whip
Mi amour - let us sink our ship

We'll make our graves
Where ever we want to
and We'll sing out praise
To the Goddess of love
Track Name: The War
It's another kind of war we're livin'
We'll use our tired voices just for singin'
A soldier's song of peace and lovin'
The one where everyone is winnin'

The graveyards hum
Lay down your guns
The graveyards hum
War can't be won

It's another kind of peace we're givin'
We'll use our tired voices just for singin'
A soldier's song of peace and lovin'
The one where everyone is winnin'

The graveyards hum
Lay down your guns
The graveyards hum
War can't be won
