THE HANDS OF MAN  
     
  These are the hands that build cathedrals
These are the hands that feed the world
These are the hands that kill the ones we heal
These are the hands of man

These are the eyes that see the wonders
These are the eyes that greet the dawn
These are the eyes that see the glory of
The place that is our home

These are the wounds that tell of anger
These are the wounds that speak of hate
Yet there was one that gave his only son
And these are the wounds... of love

And we have crossed the oceans
We have followed the stars
We have learned to reason
And we have studied the heart
We can build cathedrals
We are part of the plan
We have sailed the skies
For we are man!

These are the days to live forever
These are the days of the human race
For there will come a time when we'll be gone
Gone without a trace

These are the dreams that take us forward
These are the dreams that walked the moon
These are the dreams that make us what we are
These are the dreams... of Man!

And we have crossed the oceans
We have followed the stars
We have learned to reason
And we have studied the heart
We can build cathedrals
We can sail the skies
We have energy hostage
Turning day into night
We are far from perfect
We are making mistakes
We can change direction
'Cos it's never too late
We can cross over bridges
We can open our hands
To a brand new world
We are man!

And we have crossed the oceans
We have followed the stars
We have learned to reason
And we have studied the heart
We can build cathedrals
We can sail the skies
We have energy hostage
Turning day into night
We are far from perfect
We are making mistakes
We can change direction
'Cos it's never too late
We can cross over bridges
We can open our hands
To a brand new world
We are man!
