Jackson BrowneIt Is One

They shot a man into the sky The moon and stars became his bed He saw the sun rise seven times And when he came back down he said It is one, it is one One world spinning 'round the sun Wherever it is you call home Whatever country you come from It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one They shot a man if Africa At a time of rivalry and war He had some dreams of a good life But dreams aren't what they killed him for Now people stand themselves next to the righteous And they believe the things they say are true They speak in terms of what divides us To justify the violence they do But it is one, it is one One world spinning 'round the sun Wherever it is you call home Whatever country you come from It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one One -- the deep blue ocean One -- the endless sky One -- the purple mountains One -- you and I It's not a world of our own choosing We don'd decide where we are born This life is a battleground between right and wrong One way or other we are torn And people stand themselves next to the righteous And they believe the things they say are true And speak in terms of what divides us To justify the violence they do But it is one, it is one One world spinning 'round the sun Wherever it is you call home Whatever country you come from It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one One -- the deep blue ocean One -- the endless sky One -- the purple mountains One -- you and I (c) 1996, Swallow Turn Music/Glad Brad Music, Inc./Eye Cue Music, adm. by Almo Music Corp./Bateria Music/Irague Music, ASCAP/Neurp Songs/Faux Music/Longitude Music Co., all rights on behalf of Faux Music, adm. by Longitude Music Co., BMI.
