ONE HUNDRED DAYS


From Athens to Armenia, Sparta to Megara

They laid down their weapons of war

They summoned all the heroes, called them from the slaughter

Told them they’d be warriors no more.


They swore the sacred treaty, truce between the nations

And laid down their weapons of war

Some say it was seven days, others counted fifty

But for now they would be warriors no more.


From London to humanity we light the fire, we raise the flame

As champions are gathered on our shore

One hundred days of amnesty, peace shall be the legacy

Universal voices say No More

We say No More.
