I watch the world thru tainted glass

observing things I cannot grasp

as fear and violence fill the air

I offer up this little prayer

 

there will come a day

when the conflicts shall be ended

there will come a day

when the broken shall be mended

and man will realize

we must share what the earth provides

letís toss the yoke away

and start the day today

 

I hear hatred in religionís name

and people praising fleeting fame

folks crowing in their greedy pride

muffling hungry motherís cries

 

there will come a day

when poverty shall be ended

there will come a day

when the weak shall be defended

and man will realize

we must listen to the voice inside

letís toss the yoke away

and start the day today

 

who am I to say to you

I understand your point of view

when I cannot see beyond your skin

or the culture that you living in

 

there will come a day

when prejudice shall be ended

there will come a day

when creation shall be blended

and man will realize

truth is seeing through a childís eyes

letís toss the yoke away

tomorrow starts today

letís toss the yoke away

tomorrow starts today
