Jam Lyrics

Nation To Nation
All The World
Must Come Together
Face The Problems
That We See
Then Maybe Somehow We Can Work It Out
I Asked My Neighbor
For A Favor
She Said Later
What Has Come Of
All The People
Have We Lost Voice
What It's...

    The lyrics about nation's coexisting. Why are are ignoring the obvious? The very first words MICHAEL says in the song are: "Nation to nation, all the world must come together..."

    A musician (Michael was a singer) who "jams"
    is improvising the music without any extensive preparation or predefined arrangements.

    Michael notes the rhythm of the world as he sees it, that is:) "The world keeps changing, rearranging minds and thoughts..."

    Michael is noting that in his eyes the world's "song" keeps changing.

    Later he mentions a few personal adaptions he made in his life: "Smooth criminal, that's the man, Mike's so relaxed.
    Mingle, mingle, jingle in the jungle, bum rushed to door 3 and 4's in a bundle.
    Execute the plan, first I cooled like a fan,
    Got with Janet, then with Guy, now with Michael 'cause it ain't hard to" [I don't have tie to go into the symbolism of life events here. Michael was often symbolizing his life events in song!]

    But most clearly, when Michael says "now with Michael 'cause it ain't hard to" he is essentially saying he is now focusing his energy on himself.

    He is saying that he can adapt to the changes in the world, and that it is nt too hard for he himself to "jam" during the world's song!

    It's really easy to understand if you actually understand the meanings of the words themselves.

The single was re-released in 2006 as part of Jackson's Visionary: The Video Singles collection and it was remixed to the Cirque du Soleil's Immortal World Tour, releasing that remix on the soundtrack album. "Jam" is a mix of aggressive hard funk, dance and rap, or funk hip hop. The bridge features a rap performed by Heavy D (of the group Heavy D & the Boyz).
