A great song pleading for unity

In 1969, as the Vietnam war was still going on, and the 'generation gap' was widening, the band Jefferson Airplane released a great song called
"We Can Be Together". Not just another hippy 'flower power' song, it was very philosophical and intelligent. The songs rhythm alternated between
peaceful and flowing, to chaotic sounding. The theme was: Why are we divided? We should be together. Young or old, we should all be together.

We can be together
Ah, you and me
We should be together.

We are all outlaws in the eyes of America
In order to survive
We steal, cheat, lie, forge, f##k, hide, and deal
We are obscene, lawless, hideous, dangerous, dirty, violent, and young

We should be together
Come on all you people standin' around
Our life's too fine to let it die
We should be together

All your private property is
Target for your enemy
And your enemy is we

We are forces of chaos and anarchy
Everything they say we are, we are
And we are very
Proud of ourselves

Up against the wall
Up against the wall, motherf##ker
Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall

Come on now together
Get it all together
Everybody together
We should be together
We should be together my friends
We can be together
We will be!

We must begin here and now
A new continent of earth and fire
Tear down the wall
Tear down, getting higher and higher
Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall
Won't you try?

Dude, I know your not going to understand or even comprehend.

But, I personally think 'white rabbit' is far more relevant to our current predicament.
