I was driving through the inner-city one afternoon and I saw...

people aching desperate streets walking no ghosts here reality
concrete raining merciless bitter

taste feel the chill agony fire no attempt scratch the earth above
the earth life struggle across the tower

outside the structure grotesque no crime no vindication doomed to
fate under thunder skies open you wait for

P e a c e
H o p e
L o v e
J e s u s C h r i s t

chosen futile no response from the masses enigma faceless
thousand destiny twisted speeding the process

P e a c e
H o p e
L o v e
J e s u s C h r i s t

prisoners of a genetic disorder eyes so bright in the shadows
fearing tomorrow when sunlight may kill but they have love

millions of people walk the cracks in the streets where we live
why can't we give something they're dying for?

P e a c e
H o p e
L o v e
J e s u s C h r i s t

I would die for...

P e a c e
H o p e
L o v e
J e s u s C h r i s t

I would live for...

    General CommentThis song is crazy! Powerful lyrics and very atmospheric. (There's also a great version of it on the Intense Presents: Mortal Live EP)...
    Essentially, who doesn't want peace, hope and love? They are sought after and (it would seem) hard to find today, but the writer is suggesting that we can find them in Jesus Christ. The final verse is also a cry- if Christians have these qualities, why can't they/ don't they share it more? Quite thought provoking...
