lyrics

Peace is more powerful than violence
Silence is weightier than words
My contribution to the common cause
Is a quiet resolve to say nothing at all

Just ask the birds you don’t need words to understand
How the fishes all do sing
You don’t need wings to vocalize

& The difference between you and I reminds me
We are all strangely beautiful

The soldiers on the ground they said it was complicated
The Quakers are singing loud turned in their resignation
Everything that has breath and all things between
Gather round in praise tear down the machine

Just ask the way everything resonates his name
Yea just ask the way everything still sings

& The difference between you and I reminds me
We are all strangely beautiful
Just like blood from the quill
Just like a patchwork quilt
We are all strangely beautiful
