If U-N-I-T-E-D
the [world -word ] would be a better [face -place ] … you know?
As ink [poor -pours - poorest ], from my [pain -pen ], [pen -pain ] pours from
my[hurt -heart ]
Knowin’ there’s [bits -kids ] somewhere that actually [starve -thrive ].
Take the [time -light ] out, [open -close ] your [mouth -eyes ], just picture this:
No [doctor -color ], no [hate -late ], nemesis or [difference -differences].
TV is [killing -filling ].me with scenes of [equality -negativity].
But we can[control - conduct ].it if we cooperate [lovingly -willingly].
We [came -come].a long way, but [got –get – gotten]. so much [farther -further]to
go.
[guns -thumbs]. kill, but [hate -hatred]. destroys us the [most - more]
And the [problem - problems]. could never be [solved - resolved ]. you see,
Human Rights define the [world - word ].— [DIGNITY- EQUALITY ].
If we don’t [effect-respect - access].and love each other, we’re just[dying –living–
knowing ] a [die –lie – fly ]
Because UNITED [starts – stars – starves ] with you and I.
You [see –feel – heal ].me?
