This sky's so serene,
Has felt the kiss
Of countless dreams.
And this earth
It smells so sweet,
Cradles us all
In its great heart beat.

So we must learn to love each other
See that man over there, he's my brother.
And when he laughs, I laugh.
And when he cries, I cry.
And when he needs me,
I'll be right there by his side.

Hands Across America.
Hands across this land I love.
Divided we fall.
United we stand.
Hands across America.

Mothers and fathers
Daughters and sons
Should be living together as one.
And I can't help thinking
Again and again
The heart of a strangers beats the same as a friend.

So we must learn to love each other
See those people over there
They're my sister and brother.
And when they laugh, I laugh
And when they cry, I cry
And when they need me, I'll be right there by their side.

Hands across America.
Hands across this land I love.
Divided we fall.
United we stand.
Hands across America.

We are the river of hope
that runs through the valley of fear
And when the lady who smiles
Shines upon us saying
All are welcome here

So we must learn to love each other
See that man over there, he's my brother.
And when he laughs, I laugh.
And when he cries, I cry.
And when he needs me,
I'll be right there by his side.

Hands across America.
Hands across this land I love.
Divided we fall.
United we stand.
Hands across America.

Hands across America.
Hands across this land I love.
Divided we fall.
United we stand.
Hands across America.

Hands across America.
Hands across this land I love.
Divided we fall.
United we stand.
Hands across America.

Hands across America.
Hands across this land I love.
Divided we fall.
United we stand.
Hands across America.

If they can actually get a chain that goes across America, sure. Breaks are lame.

But they should also make it go across to Europe through England, then through Afhanistan down to Iraq, and up to the space station.

I't would also be really cool to run an electric current through the chain, and make the last person's hair go staticky, especially if that person is General Apathy.

... and to Indo-China, so we can see if Marcelious is under a lily pad, waiting for Butch.

IIRC, there were some places where they had rows of people 100 deep. Like this:







They would've been smart to stretch them all out
