I don't want to live
In a world without melody.
Sometimes the rhythmic din
Of society is too much for me,
But purpose is prioritized.
These days the goal is win the prize.
There's a sleeping resonance we hold
Through which we're unified,
So let it out!

Don't just get lost in the crowd,
No one can deter you from your own path.
There's no trip too remote
From which you can't come back.
And I've got this hunch about you and me,
None of us are ready
For a world without melody.

Melody is the key,
It's the surest way
To unlock your individuality.
Melody is the key,
It will set you free!

Don't disrelish harmony,
Community will make you whole.
Work and understanding are the chords
Way deep within your soul.
They only need to be struck once
And the vibrations swell and spread,
But if we mute them they decay,
Our sensibilities are dead,
So let it out!

Don't just be one of the crowd
Hesitance and diffidence will do you in
And your soul doesn't care
For social medicine.
And I've got this hunch
About you and me,
None of us are ready
For a world without melody.

Melody is the key,
It's the surest way
To unlock your individuality.
Melody is the key,
It will set you free!

And I know together we could change the world,
Just you and me,
But I won't live without melody.
