about

“PEACE!” is a Hip Hop anthem breaking down layers of systemic violence. With a catchy violin riff, crowd participation, energetic rapping, and an infectious beat with a polyrhythmic bass line, it has been one of our most requested songs at live shows. Now the studio version is ready to be unveiled during the longest uprising against racist police violence in U.S. history. We want to add this song to the national/global conversation around policing and what kind of society we want to live in.

lyrics

(We Need) PEACE!

my people at war but they
don’t even know it so the poet’s got some more to say
this is a propaganda battle comin for your brain
cuz that’s the war terrain, we bout to storm it, rain,
cuz the perfect slavery’s chainless / the perfect traitor is blameless
the perfect racist ain’t hatred / it’s mind enslavement: the matrix
oppression came with and stays in the USA’s DNA
we gotta name it to change it but corporations are faceless
we gotta wake up the nation / mental emancipation
collective poeducation / infectious loving vibration
we need a visualization of life with no exploitation
human communication / we’re talkin real reparations! We need

PEACE! What’s that? That’s a lot to ask
when every piece of our society’s a robbery act,
where violence is the normal way of life, a common fact,
and then on top of that, our nature’s not in tact, we want

PEACE! What’s peace? Just a lack of war?
but what’s that even mean when we know what that’s actually for
is just to capture more, get a high capital score,
so the elite keep getting richer while they tax the poor, Hey,
ain’t THAT the War? Cuz that’s the bigger violence.
and isn’t the one biggest war the bigger silence
while they spout their lies to keep us all reliant,
they keep closing public schools, that’s more massive firings,
That’s WAR. And war is when there’s folks on the street,
on every block holdin a cup cuz they got nothing to eat
when there are women, children lyin, dyin, tryin to sleep
when people keep gettin beat, locked up and killed by police, we need

PEACE! I mean we need a whole new game
where everybody gets to eat and gets a home to stay in,
we can finally distribute water, clothes, education,
health care and make these basic needs society’s basis, that’s

PEACE, we’re talking Revolution now,
cuz that seems to be the one solution, how
else are we gonna feed the people who computers ousted
from their food and housing, are we human now? We want

PEACE! That means we need justice too,
that means democracy for everyone not just a few,
so we can turn our selfish culture into something new
I wonder could you trust in me, if I could trust in you? cuz that’s

PEACE, and that’s the overwhelming need,
not just lack of war but actually a mental leap
to finally becoming that which we were meant to be
we’re talking death and rebirth, you best believe, we need

PEACE! Yea / We want PEACE! Yea / We need
PEACE! Yea / We seek PEACE! Yea / We breathe
PEACE! Yea / We are PEACE!

PEACE!
PEACE!
PEACE!

PEACE!
