One Nation...

One Nation...

I used to think in different terms,
Seeing red team, blue team,
Green and purple and yellow and orange,
I tell you colorblind is a blessing from Heaven in these days.

The Earth cries and screams,
Babes are savaged in their own mothers arms while mother weeps,
We tear at each other like sharks seeing who can feed most,
With black eyes so dark the soul appears lost.

Now those who drive the divisions would add chains,
Iron grasping neck and ankles thrown into the coliseum,
Batting at each other with lightning and desperation,
Even worse - words of fear and darkness.

No more, no more, no more.

We must walk the light of the rainbow,
Call everyone of good heart brother,
Only together in the largest sense is survival beyond a dream,
Yet together armageddon becomes solely a war of words.

There is the fire of the bomb and the fire of the spirit,
The burning of flesh and the burning of failed ideas,
Children that we are it is up to us to see the difference,
Choose now.

One nation with one heart or an abyss of division's reward.
