This is a world
That revolves
Not around the sun,
But around miscommunication.

War, hunger, sickness,
Death at every corner.
And why?
What's the point?
There is no point:
It's just miscommunication.

Conflict, distress:
It's miscommunication.
Fear:
It's miscommunication.

What would happen if we
Broke the ties that
Are keeping us from hoping,
Dreaming,
Communicating effectively?

No war.
Or at least not as much
As there is now.

No hunger.
Or at least not as much
As there is now.

No sickness.
Or at least not as much
As there is now.

No death.
Or at least not as much
As there is now.

No conflict,
No distress.
Or at least not as much
As there is now.

No fear.
Or at least not as much
As there is now.

All hope.
Or at least more
Than there is now.

All dreams.
Or at least more
That there are now.

More effective communication.
Or at least more
Than there is now.
