The O.C. Supertones Album: Revenge of The O.C. Supertones Track: Prince of Peace
Prince of Peace Lyrics
Does the world ever seem like a nightmare Some suffer but the other ones don't care What does it matter if it's going on elsewhere Like it doesn't happen if it's not happening here There's a girl with only a mother and her dad just won't seem to bother No love so she finds a lover Now she has a child who doesn't have a father
Chorus Whoa O O I hope the Prince of peace is coming soon Whoa O O Yeah I hope the Prince of peace is coming soon Whoa O O We'll learn to make a plowshare from a gun Cause we won't need them when the kingdom comes.
When the Communists turn into the terrorists But the axis came before the Soviets And before that came the Confederates We'll always have a war to fight You can count on this
With every cure there comes another sickness The earth dies with every bit of progress We've gone deaf to the cries of oppressed What we need is Jesus to redeem us
Now the world doesn't work cause we've broken it And we need dope or Prozac just to cope with it Now the beast speaks its peace the Congress Plans to Propagate Proposition 666 Hitler's still alive in the knives of abortionists And the news twist the truth like contortionists And they wonder what happened to humanity You say peace but we're headed for calamity
We long for the day when we will see the heavens and the earth as they should be.
Song Description: 'Everything and everyone was originally created to be in relationship with each other. But we are fallen, and our falleness manifests itself in a division of self-seeking glory. Instead of all things uniting to bring glory to God, we arrive against one another trying to glorify ourselves. Man against earth, man against God and man against man. The results are murder, war, divorce, classism, racism...(etc.). Even our hearts and minds fight against one another. Everything is at war! But Christ is the prince of peace and his gospel is reconciliation. In the kingdom what is divided and broken will be made new, and we will see what the heavens and the earth were meant to be.' - Matt Morginsky (The O.C. Supertones)
