"BREAKING DOWN THE WALLS"

Verse 1
My Daddy was a man with a mission,
And my Mama schooled me from the age of three
That faith in God was more than a superstition
And there's a place to serve Him in His Family.
Here we are from the very same generation,
Though our lives have been as different as can be.
Together He's making us into a brand new nation.
Yeah, we've all got just one nationality.

Chorus 1
And it's a shame when we frown and look down
When we really oughtta be
Breakin' down the walls,
Breakin' down the walls,
Having a ball,
Oooh, breakin' down the walls.

Verse 2
I was taught to chase material ambition,
Live only for the things I see and feel.
Now I've opted for less comfortable conditions
To gain something that you know is much more real.
You may've been raised behind an Iron Curtain,
And what I took for granted's been your ultimate dream.
But why should we be divided, when for certain,
Together we can be an unbeatable team.

Chorus 2
The hungry we'll feed, we've got all that we need,
We've just gotta be
Breakin' down the walls,
Havin' a ball.
C'mon now, hand in hand, united we stand, divided we fall!
It's all for one and one for all!
