Lyrics & Music by Rob Lincoln

"This song is the only song I have written thus far that uses a foreign phrase. "Shalom Achshav" means "Peace Now" in Hebrew and is the name of a peace organization in Israel.
Honestly, I do not really understand the complexities of Israeli/Palestinian politics. My friends and family in Israel all want peace but obviously it's not as easy as simply shouting "Peace Now". However, it can't hurt..".
No more eye for eye
No more tooth for tooth
No more tear for tear
Peace Now

No more broken hearts
No more scars on scars
No more lies on lies
Peace Now


Shalom Shalom Shalom – Achshav
Shalom Shalom Shalom – Achshav

No more crying child
No more dying hope
No more pointing fingers
Peace Now
Peace Now

No more looking back
No more tit for tat
No more standing pat
Peace Now

Shalom Shalom Shalom Achshav
Shalom Shalom Shalom Achshav

If not now then when?
This day won't come again
Yes we can begin
Peace Now

All over the world
If we look forward
Working towards the words
Peace Now

Shalom Shalom Shalom – Achshav
Shalom Shalom Shalom – Achshav
Peace Now
Please Now
Peace Now
Peace Now
