"Peace - An End" as written by Peter John Sinfield and Robert Fripp....
Peace is a word
Of the sea and the wind
Peace is a bird who sings
As you smile
Peace is the love
Of a foe as a friend
Peace is the love you bring
To a child

Searching for me
You look everywhere
Except beside you
Searching for you
You look everywhere
But not inside you

Peace is a stream
From the heart of a man
Peace is a man, whose breath
Is the dawn
Peace is a dawn
On a day without end
Peace is the end, like death
Of the war

    General CommentThese lyrics are so good, like most of Sinfield's lyrics - thick with imagery and metaphors, just beautiful.

    I think the throughout the entire theme, peace is being conveyed as totally pure.

    Nature, forgiveness, acceptance and innocence.

    It's all there. Sublime.

    Song MeaningThis song says a powerful thing to the pomposity of the intellectual

    "Searching for me
    You look everywhere
    Except beside you
    Searching for you
    You look everywhere
    But not inside you"

    For me these lyrics and this section of the song - is the song. In the Wake of Poseidon closes shrewdly on this note. The lyrics mean that peace has no cardinality. It is not an object that may be defined by postulates and formulas, nor a subject of extreme contemplation or calculation. Peace is an essence that you feel; if you must rationalize peace then you are empty. Peace is simple and primordial for those who can feel.
