We Are One - Nigeria Remix

We Are One (Nigeria Remix)

Ever seen an eagle feeding like a vulture?
Dignity trampled on where corruption is a culture?
Darkness threatens her future, cause of her shapeless structure 
it’s saddening 'cause she’s been richly blessed by Mother Nature
Disunity like a knife tryna cut her apart
Of the National cake the lower class don’t get a part
There’s a saying you will reap whatever that you plant
There’s fruit of hatred ripening deep in our hearts
Blame it on the Government and the sycophants right
Most citizens do not get a fair role of the dice
Economic recessions led to skyrocketing price
Job rate inverse proportional to the rate of crime
What’s the way forward for a nation without steady lights
Mourning like every night
Late fluorescents with candle lights
Our eagles been flying lowly, yet it’s a scary flight
A thousand tonnes of honor and glory heavy right

But you'll see everyday
That we'll never turn away
When it seems all your dreams come undone
We will stand by your side
Filled with hope and filled with pride
We are more than we are
We are one

Tho different color or eyes skin hair and different faces
Different cultures, tribes, religions and languages
Different dreams and believes 
Different gifts we received
From the creator, our souls embedded into nature 
We are one
Flesh and blood, living under the sun
A species divinely created in the likeness of God (we are)
Precious like diamonds and pearls (we)
Put in charge of the universe
In freedom, peace and unity and the winds of love 
We are bound
Tho divided by rivers, streams and boarders lines carved in time, by civilization and secession into nations we may divide but only one God watches over us like the sun in the sky
If chords unite our land, lets create a unity band
No such thing as a perfect world, but we could make it better
The grass been turning brown, you and I and can make it greener
God disguised as fate made us Nigerians for a plan
Our nation will be great, if we unite we will stand

That we'll never turn away
When it seems all your dreams come undone
We will stand by your side
Filled with hope and filled with pride
We are more than we are
We are one
