Lyrics



My blood brother is an immigrant

A beautiful immigrant

My blood brother's Freddie Mercury

A Nigerian mother of three



He's made of bones, he's made of blood

He's made of flesh, he's made of love

He's made of you, he's made of me

Unity!



Fear leads to panic, panic leads to pain

Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ey, ey, ey

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ey, ey, ey

Danny Nedelko



My best friend is an alien (I know him, and he is!)

My best friend is a citizen

He's strong, he's earnest, he's innocent

My blood brother is Malala

A Polish butcher, he's Mo Farah



He's made of bones, he's made of blood

He's made of flesh, he's made of love

He's made of you, he's made of me

Unity!



Fear leads to panic, panic leads to pain

Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate

Yeah, yeah, hey, ey, ey, ey

Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ey, ey, ey

The D, the A, the N, the N, the Y

The N, the E, the D, the E, the L

The K, the O, the C, the O, the M

The M, the U, the N, the I, the T

The Y, the S, the O, the F, the U

The C, the K, the Y, the O and the U

And you, and you, and you, and you



Yeah, yeah, hey, ey, ey, ey

Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ey, ey, ey

Danny Nedelko

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ey, ey, ey

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ey, ey, ey

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
