Same Tree

Kill each other over our religions
End other lives for what we believe  
We have taken men    
Hung them right up there  
For the color of their skin  
Right up in our tree  
That tree we carved our names into  
Heart with an arrow  
Shot clean through  
I can't forget him  
I can't forget them  
I hope you never will  
Hate them for what they believe in  
Hates me back for the very same  
Take these guns onto the fields  
Our blood runs onto its leaves  
Those leaves that fell so beautifully in autumn  
This cool crisp morning won't let us be  
Live and die  
Love or hate  
Our leaves fall from the same damn tree!
