Excerpt from the lyrics:
Children of Darkness
Now is the time for your loving, dear,
And the time for your company,
Now when the light of reason fails
And fires burn on the sea;
Now in this age of confusion
I have need for your company.
For I am a wild and a lonely child
And the son of an angry man;
And now with the high wars raging
I would offer you my hand…
The Peace 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.
