"The World As We Know It" as written by Christopher Petrosino, Robert Mccurdy, Abir Hossain, Justin Wiley and Jessica Leplon....
so let's sing the exacutioner's song
why can't we all just get along?
in spite of our like differences
it starts a laugh, a warm heart-felt embrace
now, all we need is love to make for something great
to make for something great

everybody's just somebody watching the show
everybody feel your body losing control
let's let our hearts speak to our minds
and let's let our minds speak to our souls
woah, do you know we all pump the same red blood in our veins
and do you know we all wish upon the same stars
for the same things
heart in heart, out hands they all fit
this is the world as we know it

let's stop the pointless fighting
and let's starting living and loving
let's stop all this fighting
and let's starting living and loving

and if they cut off our tounges
we'll still sing loud, we will be strong
we will be heard
cause if they cut off our tounges
we'll sing louder than before

everybody's just somebody watching the show
everybody feel your body losing control
let's let our hearts speak to our minds
and let's let our minds speak to our souls
woah, do you know we all pump the same red blood in our veins
and do you know we all wish upon the same stars
for the same things
heart in heart, out hands they all fit
this is the world as we know it

("let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of mississippi
when we let it ring from every city and ever hamlet")

everybody's just somebody watching the show
everybody feel your body losing control
let's let our hearts speak to our minds
and let's let our minds speak to our souls
woah, do you know we all pump the same red blood in our veins
and do you know we all wish upon the same stars
for the same things
heart in heart, out hands they all fit
this is the world as we know it

this is the world as we know it

heart in heart, out hands they all fit
this is the world as we know it

("black men and white men, jews and gentiles,
protestants and catholics, will be able to join hands;
free at last! free at last! thank god all mighty
we are free at last.")


*quotes: Martin Luther King Jr.
