When We All Come Together by Songbird inspired by #MichaelJackson as well these pics inspired my verse 5

When We All Come Together

By Songbird

 

(Chorus)

When we all come together

Standing tall for one another

We all can make the world

A place that’s much better

For you, I and every boy and girl

 

Verse 1

But when we leave a face to cry

Out of hunger or pain

Or another dies unjustified

Just so we can play our politic games

Out of brutality and our disdain

Or we choose to pick aside

Based on someone’s name

Or sexuality or color of their skin

Than nobody really wins

 

Verse 2

So let’s not stand divided

But united than everybody wins

So let’s not fight it but find it within

Ourselves to wanna change like the wind

Or nobody truly wins. Because

 

(Chorus)

When we all come together

Standing tall for one another

We all can make the world

A place that’s much better

For you, I and every boy and girl

 

Verse 3

But when our children can go missing without a trace

Or we are obligated to overfill our overpopulated jails

And voices can go unheard because of our foolish pride refuses to listen

Or soldiers can go overseas just to kill strangers all because of their faith

Makes me wonder if any of us are truly innocent and free?

When all we have room for is our lust, wars and greed

 

Verse 4

Well the homeless are just another face in the crowd

Without a place to sleep or a way to feed themselves

Left to die on our streets seen as another cold case

That’s why to me it’s more than just skin deep

Because how can we all just condone this?

 

Verse 5

Fight for guns rights?

But not equality for everyone

Well we kill our mother earth

With the pollution that fills our lungs

As wars wash up the young onto our shores

Innocent blood spilled just to settle our scores

So how much more can we do to each other?

Before we all say that we have had enough

And we don’t wanna see another suffer

 

Repeat Verse 2

So let’s not stand divided

But united than everybody wins

So let’s not fight it but find it within

Ourselves to wanna change like the wind

Or nobody truly wins. Because

 

(Chorus)

When we all come together

Standing tall for one another

We all can make the world

A place that’s much better

For you, I and every boy and girl
