"Peace And Love" as written by and Marti Pellow Adam Levy....
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby
Peace and love

Riding around in a Volkswagen van
Thinking 'bout the people upside-down in Japan
Staring at the stars in a distant galaxy
Wondering if there's someone out there staring back at me singing

Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby
Peace and love

Lying on the floor just playing my guitar
Trying to find the chords for "Just The Way You Are"
Plane crash flashing on my TV
Well it could have been you, baby
It could have been me

We'll never live forever
But baby things could be worse
Cause when we get together we are one with the Universe

Sometimes I think I might just move up to Vermont
Open a bookstore or a vegan restaurant
Got crazy karma, never harmed a single soul
So if you want to join me then together we'll grow old singing

Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby
Peace and love

    Song MeaningThis song is essentially "Go Hippie 2". FOW made fun of hippies in "Go Hippie" off their previous album. "Peace and Love" carries on that theme, this time shifting the narrative to first-person.

    It captures the ignorant smugness ("Got crazy karma, never harmed a single soul"), the stuck-in-the-past aesthetic ("trying to learn the chords to 'Just the Way You Are'), the obliviousness of living in a self-made little so-called utopian bubble ("Plane crash flashing on my TV" -- but he doesn't care because everything is all rainbows and sunshine in HIS world), and the pseudo-deep-but-actually-shallow New Age ponderings ("We are one with the Universe" becomes just a meaningless catch-phrase with this type of person).

    FOW sure knows how to skewer a target.

    General CommentThis is my boyfriend and my Volkswagen van song. He has one, and this the song we blared from it going across a huge bridge. . or rather, we WILL do. When it's done. But he loves the song too.

    And I agree with the Bush comment. . . .THE ONLY BUSH I TRUST IS MY OWN!

    General CommentI think this song is about a boy with a history of violence trying to convince the girl he likes that no no, he's fine, just fine, see how calm he is? But at the same time he's trying to convince himself that it's true, that 'peace and love' is all he's thinking about.
