Remember this before you vote
We can all sink, or we all float
'Cause we're all in the same big boat

[Chorus x 2]

One world is enough
For all of us

It may seem a million miles away
But it gets a little closer everyday
It may seem a million miles away
But it gets a little closer everyday
It may seem a million miles away
But it gets a little closer everyday

One world...
