Eye for Eye





Listen to the music - MIDI version


"Eye for eye and tooth for tooth"
Is not the way, and if you want proof
Look what constant fighting leaves behind
You've got to talk when you're seeking peace
It's hard to talk when you've got no teeth
And it's hard to find the way when you're both blind


If someone hits you, don't hit back
You shouldn't fight, and it's wrong to smack
You shouldn't shout or throw your weight around
Jesus said, blessed are the meek
You've got to learn, turn the other cheek
And find a better way, way to make things right


Seeking revenge may seem AOK
But Jesus said that the better way
Is fighting hard to try and make things right
You need to talk when you disagree
And if it helps, find a referee
It might not help at all, but it just might

If someone hits you, don't hit back
You shouldn't fight, and you shouldn't smack
You shouldn't shout or throw your weight around
Jesus said, blessed are the meek
You've got to learn, turn the other cheek
And find a better way, way to make things
Find a better way, way to make things
Find a better way, way to make things right
