"Peace Sign" as written by David Thomson, Valerie Poxleitner and Beatrice Martin....
If they take my hand will it be to burn me or to say amen
We beckon so we can make amends
And with the same flip of the hand we curse our friends
Where it's all a blur, you are the hard line
In the disorder, you are the peace sign

It's getting hard to know
If I'm on the tracks or off the beaten road
When no truth ever easily shows
So I'll follow you no matter where you go

And when it's all a blur, you ore the hard line
In the disorder, you are the peace sign
And when the riots stir, you are the sound mind
And in the disorder, you are the peace sign

I can't tell if they're laughing at me or with me
All these hints and subtleties they got me on
My knees begging for serenity
And when it's all a blur, you are the hard line

In the disorder, you are the peace sign
And when the riots stir, you are the sound mind
And in the disorder, you are the peace sign
And when it's all a blur, you ore the peace sign
And in the disorder, you ore the peace sign

    General CommentThe song is about having that stable, guiding 'thing' in your life. That 'thing' can be faith, a person, a lover, an ideal, etc. When everything and/or everyone around you is going crazy, it's the one thing you can hold on to that won't change.

    General CommentI understand how people might generally jump to the fact that this song is about God. But to someone who doesn't have that faith in God, this song may mean something different. I for one believe that this song can be about anyone you have faith in and who's there for you no matter what :) Of course, I'm also not saying that this isn't about God; because He may be the one who you have faith in and who'll look out for you no matter what :D

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious this song is about God. We live in a messed up world where it's hard to trust people, even our selves, but He is "the hard line", "the sound mind", and "the peace sign".

    Song MeaningThe song is about the G20 riots in Toronto. The first line in the song "If they take my hand will it be to burn me or to say amen" is a reference to what was going on with the police at the time - there were peaceful protesters and there were violent protestors and the police were grabbing anyone on the streets they could, getting them out of the way or arresting them. Lights was living in Toronto at the time.

    General CommentI completely agree with ilovecalcifer. To me, it seems like she's saying that God is not only the peace sign and the one who makes sense of everything, but also the one who puts love inside our hearts so that we can put aside our anger and forgive.
