[music video] Michael Franti: Bomb the World (“Power to the Peaceful!”)

Michael Franti – Bomb the World

Please tell me the reason
Behind the colors that you fly
Love just one nation
And the whole world we divide

You won’t say you’re “sorry”
“There is no other choice”
God bless the people them
Who cannot raise their voice

We can chase down all our enemies
Bring them to their knees
We can bomb the world to pieces
But we can’t bomb it into peace

Power to the peaceful
Love to the peaceful
.

=

[God’s] love to the peaceful.

=

Blessed are the peacemakers
for they shall be called the children of God.”

– Jesus

=

God resists the proud [Americans],
but GIVES GRACE to the humble.”

– Jesus’ brother, James

Who would Jesus bomb —
or have us bomb?

“Love your neighbor as yourself.”
