  • Baltimore

    Nobody got in nobody's way
    So I guess you could say it was a good day
    At least a little better than the day in Baltimore
    Does anybody hear us pray
    For Michael Brown or Freddie Gray?
    Peace is more than the absence of war

    Absence of war
    Are we gonna see another bloody day?
    We're tired of the crying and people dying
    Let's take all the guns away

    Absence of war, you and me
    Maybe we can finally say
    Enough is enough, it's time for love
    It's time to hear
    It's time to hear the guitar play,
    Guitar play

    Baltimore
    Ever more

    If there ain't no justice, then there ain't no peace
    If there ain't no justice, then there ain't no peace
    If there ain't no justice, then there ain't no peace
    If there ain't no justice, then there ain't no peace

    Baltimore
    Baltimore
    Peace is, peace is more than the absence of war

    Are we gonna see another bloody day? (No, no no no)
    We're tired of the crying and people dying (oh oh)
    Let's take all the guns away

    There ain't no peace
    If there ain't no justice, then there ain't no peace
    If there ain't no justice, then there ain't no peace (Baltimore, oh)

    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh (Absence of war)
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh
    We have to interrupt the regular scheduled programming
    To bring you up to date on a developing situation in Los Angeles Writer/s: PRINCE ROGERS NELSON
