"Love Is... (The Only Weapon With Which I Got To Fight)" as written by and Brian Edwards....
If by any chance you would make a mistake to try to come in and take any one of us
We will not let you, you will die, you will have to take anybody over all our dead bodies

Love's the only weapon...Shit! Bullshit! Martin Luther King died with love!
Kennedy died talking about something he didn't understand,
Some kind of generalized love and he never backed it up! He fucked up! Bullshit!
Love is the only weapon with which I got to fight
I got a hell of a lot of weapons to fight
I got my cars, I got compasses, I got guns, I got dynamite!
I got a hell of a lot to fight
I'll fight! I'll fight! I'll...
I will fight! I will fight! I will fight! I will fight!

Let them do it in the night
Let the night roar...
Let the night roar, because they can hear us!
They know we mean it!
We'll kill them if they come

    Lyric CorrectionNot only is the above commenter right about the lyric being "I got my claws, I got cutlasses", but the lyric certainly isn't "He fucked up!", it's "he was shot down". The speech is being delivered by Jim Jones of the Jonestown Massacre. He was trying to say that MLK, Jr. and Kennedy died because they espoused love.

    By the same token, the lyric is not "Let them do it in the night". It is "Let them hear it in the night". He is referring to those who had surround the Jonestown compound in order to capture Jones due to human right issues and murders, notably of the US Congressman Leo Ryan.

    Also, for what it's worth, the definitive book about the whole Jonestown incident came out in 1982 and is entitled, "Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People". The name of this Odawas album is "Raven and the White Night". Truly a wonderfully chilling and haunting album.
