words and music by Roy Zimmerman
We used to take a nonviolent stance
In Nehru jackets and bell-bottom pants
We even used to sing, "Give peace a chance"
God, we must have been joking

We used to slander the words of our prez
And praise whatever the Tao Te Ching says
We used to wanna sing like Joan Baez
Jesus, what we were smoking?

Now when someone says, "Hell no, we won't go"
What they mean is "to Berkeley"

Peace is out, love is out
No one wants to hear about
Peace and love anymore
Now we're fighting
In a war against homelessness, a war against drugs
'Cause it's in to be in a war

We used to traipse around in tie-dye tights
Dropping daisies in enemy sights
Now we're fighting for property rights
Must have come to our senses

We used to say all we needed was love
Olive branches and sign of the dove
Now we're looking for something above
90K plus expenses

Now when someone says, "What the world needs now"
It's a private police force

Peace is out, love is out
No one wants to hear about
Peace and love anymore
Now we're fighting
In a war against joblessness, a war against crime
'Cause it's in to be in a war

All we wanna say
Is peace... ain't PC, it's passé

Now when someone says, "We shall overcome"
They mean, "We'll be right over"

Peace is out, love is out
No one gives a rat's ass about
Peace and love anymore
Now we're fighting
In a war against violence, a war against poverty
A war against ignorance, a war against obesity
A war against censorship, a war against cavities
'Cause it's in to be in...
