“Our Common Humanity” World Fusion Music Video by Lua Hadar (original, 2018)


We were just trying to feed our people The wheat grew wild We said to each other Why should we not try to help nature and the Gods to grow more wheat? We plant the seeds, we cultivate we harvest we feed the people! How could we go wrong? Everybody wants the water Everybody wants the food Everybody wants their freedom We must live together in gratitude Soon the tribe next door our friends before began the thing we know as “War” They wanted our land wanted our crop They wouldn’t stop they wouldn’t stop I want your land I want your soil I want your gold I want your oil I want your house I want your mind I want your faith You’re not my kind! Everybody wants the water Everybody wants the food Everybody wants their freedom We must live together in gratitude Scientists say that our DNA goes back way, way to the Dawn of it All I want to see If Humanity can make it through in spite of it all Because 80,000 years ago we began in Africa don’t you know? We came from the same human family So we’re all cousins, don’t you see? Everybody needs the water Everybody needs the food Everyone deserves their freedom We must live together in gratitude What we forgot or don’t realize Is that we’re all the same despite our eyes our hair our color that’s just outside Humanity has lost the guide Give me a moon that shines the same on you and me When we all have food and shelter and a world that’s free We’re more alike than different but we don’t see Our Common Humanity Everybody needs the water Everybody needs the food Everyone deserves their freedom We must live together in gratitude Everybody needs the water Everybody needs the food Everyone deserves their freedom We must live together in gratitude
