We Can’t Have Both

Do we want peace, or do we want war?
We can’t sit on the fence anymore;
Put them on a ballot, and cast a vote;
We can have one, but we can’t have both.

Do we want to be chained, or to be free?
The body keeps us bound, as we can see;
Put them on a ballot, and cast a vote;
We can have one, but we can’t have both.

Do we want the truth, or do we want lies?
We can be honest, or wear a disguise;
Put them on a ballot, and cast a vote;
We can have one, but we can’t have both.

Do we believe in holiness, or in guilt?
By attacking innocence, this world was built;
Put them on a ballot, and cast a vote;
We can have one, but we can’t have both.

Do we want to spread fear, or extend love?
Will we receive the warm light from above?
Put them on a ballot, and cast a vote;
We can have one, but we can’t have both.

If we don’t keep these ideas apart,
We can make an easy choice from the heart;
But if our mind chooses to remain split,
Chaos and confusion is what we’ll get.

Each moment, we choose what our lives will be;
If we change our minds, then we’ll truly see;
If we bring the darkness to the light,
We can, in this way, abolish the night.

But if we try to live in two different ways,
We’ll just continue in a cloudy haze;
So let’s not keep opposites separated,
For when they’re compared, one must be negated.

Do we want freedom or chains, peace or war?
This is a choice that we cannot ignore;
If we want truth, love, and innocence now,
Then fear and guilt we must disavow.
