End the battle

It's time for the battle to end
Lay down your arms why can't we just be friends
Life wasn't meant to be this way
It's time for us to stop the fighting today
The young we bring into life must see
That peace is what we want to achieve

Its time for the battle to end
Lay down your arms why can't we just be friends
Life wasn't meant to be this way
It's time for us to stop the fighting today
The bloodshed has gone on to long
Why must the innocent be scorned
For what did they ever do wrong

It's time for the battle to end
Lay down your arms why can't we just be friends
Life wasn't meant to be this way
It's time for us to stop the fighting today
Open your eyes and look around
What have you achieved in this land
There's nothing but greed, misery and hate
Is this what we really want to relate

It's time for the battle to end 
Lay down your arms why can't we just be friends 
Life wasn't meant to be this way 
It's time for us to stop the fighting today
Now's the time to find a better way 
Restore the peace and hope we need
Just put an end to the fighting please

It's time for the battle to end
Lay down your arms why can't we just be friends 
Life wasn't meant to be this way
It's time for us to stop the fighting today
