Discover a new song -
Close your eyes -
FEEL the beat,
FEEL the emotion.
Let the lyrics
Paint a masterpiece
In your open mind.
Embrace the soul -
Experience the energy
Of the melodic story.
Ride the crescendo -
Wings carry your spirit,
Float on a wave.
Get lost in the moment.
Once the music stops,
It’s with you forever.
I live for today for I know tomorrow is not guaranteed.
We are man and we are vulnerable.
Religion may even be the death of us.
It’s getting harder by the day to imagine a world without war.
Countries are fighting for religion in the name of peace.
They believe there’s a right and a wrong.
I still dream of a day when we can be one,
When nations stand together for humanity,
Not for power and possessions, but to free it of poverty.
I know I’m not alone in this dream.
I imagine an end will someday come
When the planet will face a mirror, dark and worn.
We’ll close our eyes and open our imaginations,
Reach across lands and shake hands.
We’ll give peace a chance.
Rest in peace.
