When you were born you didn't know
You thought we were the same
You know we walked the same, we talked the same
Although you never knew my name
But you were told when we were young
That I was not the same
"You know he's not the same, he's not the same!"
And then you never asked my name

I say won't you have a lovely day
And then you come back telling me to go to hell

But it's - One Nation indivisible
One Nation Indivisible
One Nation Indivisible, oh my God it's irresistible
One Nation Indivisible

Well a baby is a baby, a man he is a man
You know he tries the same, he cries the same
And then you know he dies the same
But when I ask in disbelief
And they say "just because!"
You know I have to state, we learn to hate
And man you know I can't relate

I say won't you have a lovely day
And then you come back telling me to go to hell

    General CommentHoly COW-- I can't believe nobody has commented on this, but I digress.

    It's just, in my head, talking about people being taught to hate one another, when in reality we're all people-- even if we live in different countries, we as people are One Nation, indivisible, even if people try to separate us.
    People are taught to hate because they're "not the same", even though we'd get along perfectly well if not for that one difference that doesn't even make a difference but yet it does; religion, sexuality, skin colour, nationality, gender, anything else. We all -- as said in song -- try the same, cry the same, and then we all die the same. We're equals, we all feel, and we're all one people despite being unique.

    Really a great song.
