Build Life,
Build love and remedy,
Build family and ecstasy,
Build a longer life span for every one of us,
Build cures for Polio, Tetanus and Smallpox,
Build the chance for a longer life,
Break the chance for a longer life,
Break families by futile deaths over pointless feuds,
Break bodies through harmful drugs and fast food,
Break happiness and health,
Break natural and yourself,
Break Life.

Build Conformity,
Build rules and routine,
Build rights and responsibility,
Build a safe environment by setting foundations,
Build a working society with national regulations,
Build the chance for peace,
Break the chance for peace,
Break the trust of each other as if we were fascist,
Break windows and walls by rejecting the masses,
Break safety and borders,
Break law and order,
Break Conformity.

Build Status
Build roles and tradition,
Build power and profession,
Build up your personal drive and motivation,
Build up an economy through dreams and aspiration,
Build the chance to grow as a person,
Break the chance to grow as a person,
Break confidence by making some feel like less,
Break someone’s worth due to prejudice,
Break value and wealth,
Break equality and self,
Break Status.

Build Freedom,
Build dreams and activity,
Build expression and creativity,
Build the opportunity for people to become anyone,
Build the possibility for people to become more than someone,
Build the chance to make a difference
Break the chance to make a difference
Break the minds of the people, who revolutionise the way we live,
Break the voice and minds of those who give,
Break thought and voice,
Break idea and choice,
Break Freedom.


Build Connection,
Build transport and phones,
Build the internet and homes,
Build globalisation to reach across the borders,
Build trading channels to move economies forward,
Build the chance to meet people
Break the chance to meet people
Break relationships when the sound of a phone cuts in,
Break down society with the touch of a button,
Break talking and meeting,
Break eating and greeting,
Break Connection.

Build Future,
Build the wall and door,
Build the window and floor,
Build technology which expands our mind,
Build exploration to see what else we can find,
Build the chance for a tomorrow
Break the chance for a tomorrow
Break the ozone from the hills of landfill creation,
Break the forest through deforestation
Break trees and leaves,
Break grass and seas,
Break Future.
