"Profit in Peace" is a rock song by Ocean Colour Scene (OCS).

The song was released in 1999 and reached number 13 in the UK Singles Chart. It is taken from their 1999 album One From The Modern and was the first single to be released from the album.

The song title came from a phrase drummer Oscar Harrison often used, "There's no profit in Peace". Simon Fowler then took that title and wrote the song about the war at the current time and the message is saying because there is no profit in peace - war will not stop.
