about

“I’m a world citizen, citizen of the world.”

Cosmopolitanism derives from the Greek cosmos Κόσμος (the universe) and polis Πόλις (city). It articulates the place where we all currently reside. So tell me dear fellow citizen, you wanna help me clean up this city and turn it into a paradise?

Track Name: World Citizen
Im a world citizen, citizen of the world//
The world is far from perfect, so we need it to unfurl//
Let me give you an example of how it should be//
Just sit down and listen, ill make you some tea//
Let'me give you some news, ill be ur anchorman//
My country is the world, all men are my brethren//
Accept that we are one, but all unique//
Like different flowers in one garden, so to speak//
We've got to Work hand in glove, for a true community
Put your best foot forward so we do get Unity
Thats the ultimate goal, for a world citizen
And if it doesnt work, we'll just try it again
Soak it in, let it sink in, it goes far//
We are far, far away from that what we really want//
It always starts with a dream, guess we're in between//
Just gotta make it visual like it fits on a screen//

I'm a world citizen, citizen of the world//
I know every man consists of diamonds and pearls//
It doesn't matter where you're from//
'Cause I know that we are one//

Im a world citizen, citizen of the world//
I send this message out to every boy and girl//
The thoughts you put in your head, they come out when you act//
In interaction with others, so I love practicing tact//
In a world where citizens are countrymen fellows
whom conversate meaningful, this song is for those//
I guess these songs depict a world packed with meaningful flows//
Where even stuff and nonsense is making you grow//
How does that sound to you, it sounds wonderful//
Like a waterfall, coast down with no obstable//
It's pretty beautiful, when you wake up every rise//
And your community's unity, everybody acting nice, right//
And I don't take this lightly, there's no need to pinch me//
Every fool who says dreams are a waste of time//
I believe in God, that's a whole other subject
World unity is a dream of globalisation and logic//

I'm a world citizen, citizen of the world//
I know every man consists of diamonds and pearls//
It doesn't matter where you're from//
'Cause I know that we are one//
