C'mon, get it on
Right on

As zero point approaches and the fields around U drop
Thoughts become reality and it feels like time has stopped
When all that's on the radio is electromagnetic pop
Steady ur teeth and gnash

Compassion
C'mon, get it on
Compassion
Right on

When love 4 the greater number freezes over and cools
And everyone around U acts like a bloody fool
No sanctity 2 the left of U, no righteousness 2 the right
The only thing that's left n fashion

Compassion
C'mon, get it on
Compassion

Whatever skin U're n, we all need 2 b friends
All happy again, it's so much better than nothin'
Everybody can win with a little faith n men
Beginning of the end 2 start up a brand new somethin'

When ego, fear and judgment become the rule of law
Watch the polar ice caps heat up, melt down and thaw
When the greedy 1 4gets that he's the reason 4 it all
The only gold that's so worth stashin'

Compassion
Now get it on
Yeah, compassion
Right on

When the highest seat n office no love can b found
Nation will rise against nation and get down
Ooh
Ow
Come on

Whatever skin U're n, we all need 2 b friends
All happy again, it's so much better than nothin'
Everybody can win with a little faith n men
Beginning of the end 2 start up a brand new somethin'

If U got compassion, let's get back n fashion (Ooh yeah)
The new international anthem

Whatever skin U're n, we all need 2 b friends
All happy again, it's so much better than nothin'
Everybody can win with a little faith n men
Beginning of the end 2 start up a brand new somethin'

Whatever skin U're n, we all need 2 b friends
(Black and white and yellow, we can b friends)
All happy again, it's so much better than nothin'
Everybody, everybody can win with a little faith n men
Beginning of the end 2 start up a brand new somethin'
Ooh ooh, 2 start up... a brand new somethin', yeah (Oh...)

Whatever skin U're n
