DC: War or peace, peace or war
Can’t have one without the other
Peace is what we’re fighting for
NA: Peace or war, war or peace
Counting scalps is no solution
Our suffering will not cease.

DC: You have been to battle
Yet you suggest surrender
NA: Not surrender, just accept
That we are too outnumbered
Everyday I watch more settlers
Cross that mountain pass
DC: If they set foot on Cherokee land
That step will be their last

BOTH: War or peace, peace or war
DC: Trespassers must be removed
Our dignity must be restored
BOTH: Peace or war, war or peace
NA: The only way we can survive
is to live in harmony

Admit the whites are here to stay
You cannot stop a flood
DC: They desecrate our sacred grounds
And they will pay in blood
Spirits of our fallen brothers
Wait to be avenged
NA: To stop this deadly cycle
We must stop seeking revenge

BOTH: War or peace, peace or war
NA: The future of our children’s children
Cannot be ignored
BOTH: Peace or war, war or peace
DC: I’d rather die that live with lies
Humiliation and defeat.
