Lyrics
:

("Colours. Causes of the major disturbance in peoples lives, yet you pour bleach on them and they **** both need to have a colour no more. Now what you fighting over?")

When both sides are right and no one will admit to wrong
And they stand and face each other to the death like fighting cocks
All reason stays lost, buried in our history's fog
Our innocence gunned down in the street like a pistol shot

And everybody's talking saying nothing much
All angry men who concede no ground and give nothing up
As the green shoots of hope are trampled into the mud
And blindly we run head on into the great cut up

Tell me who (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace
Me or you (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace
Tell me who (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace
Who's gonna make the first move (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace?

And the politicians bleat and bray on the right side of wrong
While their brown tongues extend from Whitehall to Washington
And the sexual revolution puts the church to bed
With a gay priest who prays aloud while the last rites are read

Tell me who (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace
Me or you (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace
Ah tell me who (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace
Who's gonna make the first move (who!)
Who's gonna make the peace?

(Who's gonna make the peace?)
(Who's gonna make the peace?)

Who's gonna make the peace?

Ah tell me who?
Tell me who?
Who's gonna make the peace?
(Who's gonna make the peace?)
Ah tell me who?
Tell me who?
Who's gonna make the peace?
Who's gonna make the peace?
Who's gonna make the peace?

Who's gonna, who's gonna, who's gonna 
Who's gonna make the peace?

Who's gonna make the peace?
Who's gonna, who's gonna, who's gonna, who's gonna
Who's gonna make the peace?

(Who's gonna make the peace?)

Mike Peters Notes
:”We live in the age of communication; the era of the information superhighway, yet we find ourselves in the midst of communication breakdown. The more ways we find to communicate, the harder we find the means to express ourselves. British Telecom ‘It’s good to talk.’ ‘Some crazy shit is going on, let me tell you.’ This song is a direct result of our polarised society: a mix of primary colour rock ‘n roll; the urban tones of ghetto technology; sound-bytes, samples, loops and a frantic orchestral string arrangement.”
(21st Century Fanzine #2)
