Peace on Your Plate

The presents are open, foods being shared
The bubbly’s poured, the table prepared
Children are playing by the fireside
There’s magic at yuletide
But in a distant land it’s a different scene
In a factory shed the animals scream
Thousands packed into dark tiny spaces
Hidden from view, you can’t see their faces

But we can be the change
So put peace on your plate this Christmas Day

Wishing good will to all men
But what about the animals we’re slaughtering?
And the planet that we’re living on?
If we don’t change we face oblivion
It’s time to feed the world
To bring peace on earth
Let our love shine through
For them, for me, for us, for you

And we can be the change
So put peace on your plate this Christmas Day

It’s a time of giving not taking
A time for loving not hating
So let’s celebrate life
Don’t carve it up with a knife
Let’s celebrate life

So put peace on your plate this Christmas Day
