2004 - still at war
& everybody hates Americans
Let's go
C'mon

Flyin' N an aeroplane with pen N hand
Over miles & miles of deep blue
Wonderin' if it was all part of a master plan
4get the 1 & become 2
How could ur brother hear the same music
Yet somehow dance 2 a different tune?
guess that once U go divide this precious land
This precious land will divide U
Sing

Doo doo doo...
Everybody stop fighting
Doo doo doo...
Everybody make love

Drivin' a brand new Cadillac thru my neighborhood
Everything still look the same, uh
N everything except the fact wish could
Take away all the hurt & pain
We let Super Fly straighten up our curly hair
He took the afro out the game
It's kinda cool but the guns & drugs 2 much 2 bear
10 years later Scarface came (Who U think U messin' with?)
Sing the hook

Doo doo doo...
Everybody stop fighting
Doo doo doo... (C'mon, disarm)
Everybody make love

Bridge
A united state of mind will never B divided
The real definition of unity is 1
People can slam their door
Disagree & fight it
But how U gon' love the Father
But not love the Son?
United States of Division

Walkin' down the street
No flag N hand
No stars & stripes
No claim 2 land
No crescent moon
Just a holy man, holy man
How far from heaven must we go
B4 the winds of change will blow & show
This world how it's supposed 2 B?
Land of peace & harmony
C'mon, everybody stop fighting
Everybody make love
C'mon, everybody stop fighting
United States of Division

People can slam their door
Disagree & fight it
But how U gon' say U love the Father
But not love the Son?
United States of Division
Black (Division)
White (Division)
Straight (Division)
Gay (Division)
Christian (Division)
Muslim (Ahh!)

Y must sing "God Bless America"
& not the rest of the world
"Oh say can U C?"
love my country but love God more
Every man, women, boy & girl
Oooh
Can U sing with me?

Doo doo doo... {repeat}
C'mon, everybody
Oh, everybody stop fighting
Put ur gun down
Hey, everybody gather 'round, gather 'round
Everybody make love
Hey! Ow
Talk 2 me, what is this rush 2 declare war?
Everybody stop fighting
What we fightin' 4?
Hey, oh
Come here, baby
Everybody make love
Talkin' 2 United States, United States
United States of Division

Everybody make music
Everybody make love
