Inspired by Michael Jackson's cover of the song by the Beatles.

Come Together
Her soul is bleeding.
it's the gravest injustice.
She drinks streams of poison.
Truly melancholic.
No one heard a word she said.
'You're a bother sister. Time to get you to bed.'

She's toss and turning. Every dream is terror.
She hears dying music. There are windblown ashes.
And her only friend? He's called Blight.
Just this once let's use our strength to give her some light.
Come together as one. Set her free.

She wakes in tremors. She's a sorry riser.
Yes, the world's uncaring. At her door's destruction.
There's no sun that her eyes can see.
She don't need this. Fight the revolution with me.
Come together as one. Set her free.

Her life's injustice. There's no rhyme or reason.
There's no kind or caring. She cries many waters.
We think we've achieved our liberty.
Wake up O my people. There's a new slavery.
Come together as one. Set her free.
