One Hundred Years from Now Submit Correct Lyrics

Tell me, how do we begin this tragic tale
When centuries of fear and hate have left a bloody trail?
And will there come a time we'll live to see
The sins of our fathers and mothers will cease to be?

And can we find a way to live and let live
When we know the hardest part is learning to forgive?
And who will be the first and who will be last
To admit that the future can never be lived in the past?

So pray tonight, pray we must
But prayers alone cannot build the trust
For all those people whose
Vengeance is their vow

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth
Who among us will speak the truth?
So our children's children
Will live in peace somehow
One hundred years from now

And how do we repair the damage done?
To all of those who've known the loss
Of daughters and of sons
And can we really feel another's pain?
While the killing continues
From Adam and Abel to Cain

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth
Who among us will speak the truth?
So our children's children
Will live in peace somehow
One hundred years from now

So pray tonight, we kill the beast
That lives among us from west to east
And to all those people whose
Vengeance is their vow

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth
Who among us will speak the truth?
So our children's children
Will live in peace somehow
One hundred years from now
One hundred years from now
