United

Why do we insist on being separate?
It can only make us more desperate.

Desperate for what makes us fight.
Desperate for what we know is right.

We separate ourselves between races.
We separate ourselves between faces.

To fit in you have to be the same.
At least that's been the aim.

Even though some of us know it's not right.
We're keeping silent like the starry night.

But I have a different plan.
I'm going to show we really can.

Cause unless we're being guided.
We can never really be united.
