"Hope" as written by and Nitin/atlas Sawhney....
In the Southland we're lighting the night sky
With the fire from a church burning down
When the sun comes again the black and white men
Stand and stare at the soot on the ground
They raise up their weapons and summon their strength
And they cut at the wood with their swords
But hey're striking blows against hatred
'Cause they're hammering nails into boards

I keep thinking I hear the four horsemen
And turning around to see
It's just the pony express again
And they've got a message for me
I've got a lot of hope for the future
I've got a lot of faith things can work out fine
Got a lot of dreams for a better world
Got a lot of work to do if I'm going to make them mine

My town is still mostly divided
And I don't see much color tonight
And I know that it's all complicated
That the issues are not black and white
But how can we come any closer
If I just shake my head where I stand
There can never be any handshakes
Until somebody puts out their hand

I keep thinking I hear the four horsemen
And turning around to see
It's just the pony express again
And they've got a message for me
I've got a lot of hope for the future
I've got a lot of faith things can work out fine
Got a lot of dreams for a better world
Got a lot of work to do if I'm going to make them mine
