A critical look at Canada’s “peacekeeping” missions in Afghanistan, Haiti, Somalia, and here at home with the First Nations.
Keepin’ the peace, keepin’ the peace
We’re keepin, the peace
Keepin’ the peace, we got you down on your knees
By keepin’ the peace

Its operation peacemaker, it’s not a war
Can’t you see it’s peace they’re fighting and they’re killing for
We’ll stay there to the end
It’s the white man’s burden
Keepin’ the peace

Keepin’ the peace, keepin’ the peace
We’re keepin, the peace
Keepin’ the peace, we got you down on your knees
By keepin’ the peace

It’s our responsibility, we guarantee,
We’ll protect the unelected from democracy
So say no more, my friend
It will not end, until we save them from themselves,
By keepin’ the peace

Keepin’ the peace, keepin’ the peace
We’re keepin, the peace
Keepin’ the peace, we got you down on your knees
By keepin’ the peace

And if you want to know what it means
Just ask the Somalians and the first Nations,
The Afghans and the Haitians
And the Japanese in the 1940s
About keepin’ the peace

I say you got to ask Somalians and the first Nations,
The Afghans and the Haitians
And the Muslim men left to rot in prison
About keepin’ the peace

Keepin’ the peace, keepin’ the peace
We’re keepin, the peace
Keepin’ the peace, we got you down on your knees
By keepin’ the peace

And now we’re at it again
We’re killing in the name of peace all over again
It’s never going to end
Until we get a taste of what we’re offering
Close our eyes and just keep on talking
All the while pretending, we’re keeping the peace
