Ave Maria
Where is the justice in this world
The wicked make so much noise, mother
The righteous stay oddly still
With no wisdom all of the riches in the world
Leave us poor tonight

And strength is naught without humility
Is weakness an untreatable disease
And war is always the choice
Of the chosen who will not have to fight
Ave Maria

Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus tecum

Strength is naught without humility
It’s weakness, a treatable disease
And war is always the choice
Of the chosen who will not have to fight

Ave Maria
