(One for all, one for all)
(It's all, it's all for one)
Let's start a union, calling every human
It's one for all and all for one
Let's live in unison, calling every citizen
It's one for all and all for one

We don't want war, can't take no more
It's drastic time for sure
We need a antidant and a cure
'Coz do you really think Mohammed got a problem with Jehovah
We don't want war, imagine if any prophet was alive
In current days amongst you and I
You think they'd view life like you and I do
Or would they sit and contemplate on why

Do we live this way, act and behave this way
We still live in primitive today
'Coz the peace of the destination of war can't be the way
There's no way, so people just be a women, be a man
Realize that you can't change the world by changing yourself
And understand that we're all just the same
So when I count to three let's change

(One for all, one for all)
(It's all, it's all for one)
Let's start a union, calling every human
It's one for all and all for one
Let's live in unison, calling every citizen
It's one for all and all for one

Got no time for grand philosophy
I barely keep my head above the tide
I got this mortgage, got three kids at school
What you're sayin' is the truth, but really troubles me inside
I'd change the world if I could change my mind
If I could live beyond my fears
Exchanging unity for all my insecurity
Exchanging laughter for my tears

(One for all, one for all)
(It's all, it's all for one)
Let's start a union, calling every human
It's one for all and all for one
Let's live in unison, calling every citizen
It's one for all and all for one

I don't know, y'all, we in a real deposition
In the midst of all this negative condition
Divided by beliefs, different sink and religion
Why do we keep missin' the point on our mission?
Why are we killin' each other, what's the reason?
God made us all equal in his vision
I wish that I could make music as a religion
Then we could harmonize together in this mission

Listen, I know it's really hard to make changes
But two of us could help rearrange this curse
Utilizing the power in our voices
Together we will unite and make the right choice
And fight for education, save the next generation
Come together as one
I don't understand why it's never been done
So let's change on the count of one

It takes one, just one
And then one follows the other one
And then other follows another one
Next thing you know you got a billion
People doing some wonderful things
People doing some powerful things
Let's change and do some powerful things
Unity could be a wonderful thing

(One for all, one for all)
(It's all, it's all for one)
(One for all, one for all, one for all)
(It's all, it's all for one)
Let's start a union, calling every human
It's one for all and all for one
Let's live in unison, calling every citizen
It's one for all and all for one
