Peace come and hold me now
Peace stand forever
Peace like a soft, cool breeze
Peace at the Wailing Wall
Peace come together
Peace to all nations' grief
Peace everlasting love
Peace reigns forever
Peace wouldn't crush the least

If this thing should spill
Would it cover us?

Peace ready overflow
Peace willing, waiting
Peace isn't contrite yet
Peace where there's room in us
Peace will we wake up?
Peace hold us up again

If this thing should spill
Would it cover us?

When it come a-covering
Up to our eyes
We will have the will to swim around
Around

    My OpinionI don't see how not a single one of these songs has a comment. The entire album is just so amazing! I love it. This is my favorite song, and I've never thought much on what it meant, but if I had to guess, the thing that is spilling would be the conflict of the world. Basically he's asking for peace, and then asks, "If everything doesn't go well, will the conflict consume us all?"

    Born in the Flood has a really hard to understand meaning in their lyrics, but nonetheless a sweet sound.
