Pitfalls
Song Lyrics and Sound Clips
Words and Music by: Two of a Kind 
Commissioned by Peacemakers: The New Generation


This song is available as an individual download.

(Verse 1:)
It had been a bad day, and nothing was right
Then you were rude to me, and we started to fight
I shoved you and began to shout
You hit me back, then someone said “Time out!”

(Chorus:)
Pitfall, pitfall - what a mistake
Pitfall, pitfall - time to take a break
We’ve got to talk to each other, so the fighting will cease
It’s time to step into the Circle of Peace

(Verse 2:)
You called me a snob, so I said, “That’s a lie!”
You said, “You better stop, or I’ll make you cry!”
“It’s all your fault that we’re in this mess”
“That’s not true - we should both confess”

(Chorus)

(Verse 3:)
You wouldn’t listen to me when I tried to explain
But it seemed quite clear that we both were to blame
If we don’t interrupt, we can each have our say
We’ll talk it out and have a better day (and find a better way)

(Chorus)

(Bridge – chant:)
P: pushing, hitting – causing violence and fear
I: interrupting – so that no one can hear
T is threatening – to make people scared
F: failing to listen to the feelings that are shared
A: avoiding taking due responsibility
L: labeling or calling names – it hurts you and me
L: lying or exaggerating – truth cannot come out
S: screaming doesn’t help – let’s talk instead of shout

(Chorus)
It’s time to step into the Circle of Peace.
