    Music is the world intertwined
    where hatred does not exist.
    Pave a melodious path and lead it.

    Sing the harmony for humankind.
    The impact of your voice will persist.
    Music is the world intertwined.

    Let not your ambitions be confined
    or your valued dreams dismissed.
    Pave a melodious path and lead it.

    Defy the norms society defines
    and dare to tunefully coexist.
    Music is the world intertwined.

    Leap forward and guide the blind
    with love rather than a fist.
    Pave a melodious path and lead it.

    Admire the splendor you design:
    the song upon which we subsist.
    Music is the world intertwined.
    Pave a melodious path and lead it.
