Excerpt:

“Just my hands, can’t build a bridge of peace…
But if two & two & fifty make a million
We’ll see that day come round”

The verse above seems on topic, since it is directly related to peace. Though, working for peace includes working for justice. So, it is wonderful that the first verse is about tearing a prison down.

The Royal Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
