Peacemaker song lyrics by Green Day

Greenday Peacemaker song words

Peacemaker song lyrics by Green Day


Peacemaker is from Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown concept album which is the follow up to the hugely popular American Idiot.

The protagonist of the album Christian may have joined the Army as a peacemaker but he's realised he's just part of the war machine, the peacemaker is actually a weapon and it's being turned on the 'infidels', a curious use of the word depending on which side of the war and or religion your, or Christian are on. 

His feeling's about his place in the war were aptly summed up by the songwriter Billie-Joe in the smash hit single, 21 Guns.

Peacemaker song lyrics by Green Day

Well, I've got a fever
A non-believer
I'm in a state of grace
For I am the Caesar
I'm gonna seize the day
Well, call of the banshee hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
As God as my witness
The infidels are gonna pay

Well, call the assassin
The orgasm
A spasm of love and hate
For what will divide us?
The righteous and the meek
Well, call of the wild hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
Death to the girl at the end of the serenade

Vendetta, sweet vendetta
This Beretta of the night
This fire and the desire
Shots ringing out on a holy parasite

I am a killjoy from Detroit
I drink from a well of rage
I feed off the weakness with all my love
Call up the captain hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
Death to the lover that you were dreaming of

This is a stand off
A Molotov cocktail
On the house
You thought I was a write off
You better think again
Call the peacemaker hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey
I'm gonna send you back to the place where it all began

Vendetta, sweet vendetta
This Beretta of the night
This fire and the desire
Shots ringing out on a holy parasite

Well now the caretaker's the undertaker
Now I'm gonna go out and get the peacemaker
This is the neo St. Valentines Massacre
Well call up the Gaza hey hey
hey hey hey hey hey
Death to the ones at the end of the serenade
Well, death to the ones at the end of the serenade
Well, death to the ones at the end of the serenade
Well, death to the ones at the end of the serenade

  4. It's a good song and all, but to me is just seems like a sped-up, galloping version of a previous song off of Warning by the name of "Misery".

    This album has not impressed me very much yet. But I guess I am an old fan that simply doesn't like the direction the band is heading. I loved the experimental tinge that the nimrod album had, but then they just went overboard with pretty much everything after.

  5. just goes to show who listens to the music and who pays attention to the lyrics vs calling every song something that sounds like something else. get over yourself. the songs sounds like misery because of the chords used aside from that theres nothing similar.

  6. it has a mexican flavor, and i like that because we are seeing GD spreading out to many different audiences and i think thats a good thing. its still definitely rock, but i think that they are trying to reach more people with their message. I like it!

  9. It did remind me of Misery as well, but I think that's a good thing, as Misery is one of my favourite GD songs. It is different enough not to be annoying me^^

    And the Gaza reference was ace.
