IMAGINE.... a chain of people,
Linked arm in arm,
Wrapping around the world,
Protecting it from harm

America wants to be the beacon,
The light for freedom and hope.
So we offer our hands and hearts,
Keeping the world safe we hope.

Hidden many years before.
Just open up your heart,
And you will find that long lost door

Imagine today's kids, tomorrow
Full of love and joy and caring.
No more hate, no more sorrow,
Because of the peace that we are sharing.

We are good people and we do not fight,
For solving our problems with violence, it's just not right.
As we look to the future which we hope will be bright,
We will stand and remember and the world will unite

Look in the mirror we're all like you.

All each seeks is validation!

Humankind has gone a long way, but there's still a long way to go
As harm hasn't yet flowed into harmony
Losing heart is out of question, hand in hand work better grows
To complement each other, to faster reach that end.
