lyrics

Sucking on poison, you want to see visions.
Devouring books, you're gonna find some religion.
Eye like an eagle, the eye of a judge.
When instead you want to be like the dove.

You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
You want to be like the dove.
You're just so full of love.

Look at your hands and you see power.
Look at your hands, you know you could kill.
Look all around you and you feel anger.
Look at your hands, you know you could kill.

But you want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
You want to be like the dove.
You're just so full of love.

Peace is kind and she wraps her loving arms around you.
But you shrug them off with so many things that you say and do.
And you return with nothing, dragging your feet with your head hung low
'Cause you know, you still have a ways to go.

Bury the hatchet, bury the past.
But we know you won't forget that fast.
Hang like a vulture when you smell blood.
Yet you say you want to be like the dove.

You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
You want to be like the dove.
You're just so full of love.
