Translations of "Favor"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? A big favor here. i really want to know the lylic of the song called "peaceful world by Kristian Mikal" I can't find any lyrics of it..can i ask you for a little lyrics as much as you want, not all is okay!! especially repeated lines plz🙏
A: I'm about 90% certain of these lyrics' accuracy. I mainly had trouble with the line "Lay our head downs and we know" because the proper plural would be "Lay our heads down", but I can't think of what else he could be saying. I'm also a little uncertain if he says "disintegrated" but it's my best guess. Everything else should be accurate.
