(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 antidote and a cure
Coz do you really think Mohamed 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 in the destination of war can't be the way
There's no way, so people, just be a woman, 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


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 saying 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


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 missing the point in our mission?
Why do we keep killing 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 all 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 another follows the other 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

    General CommentWow first comment :)

    This song definitly follows the same sort of themes as 'where is the love?'; same questioning of the problems in the world, same disagreements outlined in society, ect.

    Not the most powerful song by the B.E.Ps but some good social comentary is noticable. They certainly have a unique style when it comes to this sort of music;
    "Coz do you really think Mohammed got a problem with Jehovah"
    i love how they are able to take issues such as these and put them into, i guess, more simplistic or street-like terms.

    A nice balance between the theme and R&B.

    General CommentI really like this song. Not their best, but not as bad as some of their other songs. I really like it when they sing about the world, and not other subjects. I really liked Where Is the Love.

    And the meaning is pretty obvious. They're talking about the world, and how ppl can change it, one by one. They want to live together in peace.
