Seeing Peace

Jack Rothman: Oh, say can you see Through dawn’s hazy light The missiles streaming in air Our nukes still there.

Oh, say can you see
Through dawn’s hazy light
The missiles streaming in air
Our nukes still there
Over 800 military bases
In seventy countries
Around the globe
Sea to shining sea

seeing peace

America, America
Padlock your bases
Return your brave soldiers
Snuff out imperialism’s great flare
Scrap the military-industrial mortuary
Forsake forever war
From the mountains to the prairies to the oceans

America, America
Pause
Recalculate
And over the ramparts
Release a million white doves

Maximum Wage
