From the recording Humanity

The Boxtones, multi-award winning Scottish/Canadian rock pop band, in collaboration with Gulf4Good - A UK registered, UAE non-profit charity organization under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al Maktoum (Chairman of the Emirates Group) - released a new single supporting an international campaign to raise funds for children all over the world affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Humanity is a song about hope. We wrote the song before the pandemic of 2020 to spread our message of hopeful solidarity between people of different race, class and gender. We voiced our message through the children of Dubai, from all ethnicities and walks of life, in the music video we created to support the track.” – Gary, The Boxtones.

Lyrics

We were young, our eyes wide with hope
Impatient sons, and impatient daughters
Couldn’t wait to change the world, make mistakes, make it better for
The human race, and tear down it borders
till they all fell down

Are we looking for a miracle?
Every time we collide?
An eye for an eye’s unforgivable
Stand side by side

Arms open wide, Time to heal with Love
Our differences aside, Learn all we need from Love
No more insanity , We are Humanity
Love has no colour, no race, we’re the same, Don’t look outside, start looking in

Now’s the time, to lift our hearts
Learn from the past, rewrite our story
If we stand, join as one, hand in hand, make it better for
The human race, and forget the borders
let them all fall down

Are we looking for a miracle?
Every time we collide
An eye for an eye’s unforgivable
Stand side by side

Arms open wide, Time to heal with Love
Our differences aside, Learn all we need from Love
No more insanity , We are Humanity
Love has no colour, no race, we’re the same, Don’t look outside, start looking in

We are humanity
Love has no colour, no race, we’re the same
Don’t look outside, start looking in

We’re still looking for a miracle
Or was it inside us all the time
Maybe if we were less typical
We’d find out…
