"One Word" as written by and J. Cale B. Eno....
A man stands on the corner holding a sign
People yell at him as they drive by
I wonder what they read
That made them so upset
I looked at the sign and all it said was


One word
Peace, peace, peace, peace
In the neighborhood
One word
Peace, peace, peace, peace
In my own backyard

A man in a foreign land kneels to pray
Wonders where the bombs will fall today
My leaders tell me to fear him you see
But love conquers all
Is what I believe


Everybody's talkin' about it
Everybody's got to have their say
But to achieve it there is only one way
And it starts with me and the word
And the word is
