    The bird's song was vapid, the flowers awaited May.
    Alone we all sat, windows locked and shutter'd,
    afraid of our neighbours, our bread went unbutter'd.

    It's time to embrace every culture,
    One flock, one shepherd, one fold
    Whatever our race, hue or faith
    We're all made from the same mould.
