    Song MeaningYeah, I think the lyrics are quite obvious. He means that for people to get together and be free from "evil" things like war, corruption, manslaughter and suffer we seem to have endless of work to do. You could tell by his weak voice that he was very ill att this point. Pure amazing song.
