We are not one
We are legion, we are many
A seed is sown in everyone (seed is sown in everyone)
A silent prayer that was given in compassion
We are the children of the sun
Oh sun sun, oh sun sun sun
We are the children of the sun
Oh sun sun, oh sun sun sun

Well, we were lost and alone in a desert so dry
Without a trace of water
So we prayed for the rain and we looked to the sky
But not a trace of water

Crying in the wilderness underneath the sun
The rainmaker came to wake up everyone
Sleeping, since time has begun
Crying out for water, water

Oh spirit of the world
Crying out for water
Oh spirit of the world
Crying out for water
Oh spirit of the world
Cries to someone
Cries to someone
Oh spirit of the world
Crying out for water (water, water, water)

[Fade]
We are not one
We are legion, we are many (crying out for water)
We are the children of the sun
Oh sun sun, oh sun sun sun
