Peace Unknown By Man -Jeff Weaver, Jim Stack, Rarely Herd Music, BMI

 

 

Thunder in the regiment, no thoughts of coming things

Anticipating orders before the brass would ring.

Knowing well the cannons will spit blood out on the ground.

Flowing like a raging stream where mercy can't be found.


 

I'll pray this war would end

From the first stone thrown in Baltimore, till then

We can't seem to comfort where we stand

There's a peace unknown by man

a peace unknown by man



A soldier stood before me and I had him in my sights

I watched him fold before me with fear deep in his eyes.

Knowing I'd regret this deed before I sleep tonight

Soldier, please forgive me, for it was either you or I.


 

I'll pray this war would end

From the first stone thrown in Baltimore, till then

We can't seem to comfort where we stand

There's a peace unknown by man

a peace unknown by man

 

 

Lying on my back I wipe the sulphur smoke and tears

Powder and a lead ball mark the end to this worlds fears

Thru blinding light the soldier kneels and reaches for my hand

To let me walk beside him to a peace unknown by man



I'll pray this war would end

From the first stone thrown in Baltimore, till then

We can't seem to comfort where we stand

There's a peace unknown by man

a peace unknown by man
