CHORUS: We all talk, we walk walk, we all do the things we want We're so powerful we say, so why can't we stop the hate So come on, tell me how to get to the place Where all the color lines fade away
Things ain't always what it seems, Martin Luther King Said it and while you hate you regret it But the world will never change until you openly admit it Yo, what about the great American dream Where all men are created equal Was that a twisted plot for the sequel? Sewing seeds of hate so that your kids inherit evil And the wonder why your peachy Neighborhood ins't so peaceful Ooh, let feedom ring And shake the entire being of America's dream Let it ring from montaintops to vallay lows My rally grows stronger with my hunger For this land of the free, home of the brave Mentally enslaved, we lost everything that Our forefathers gained Pain? My race still decides it As states we're united and by hate we're divided
I ain't the first to paint this picture, Reminisce on how my situation Done got me thinkin' clear, oh my dear, baby I'm sick of tryin' lately, yall see me cryin' it's crazy I thought we made it far from here. Oh, Oh, Oh No Forgive them Father for they don't know their Problem's gone Deeper than my skin, became king of the hole above their chin Don't tell me nothin' 'cause I don't wanna hear it God judges through your spirit, don't let your hate See my color and dig my grave again
Many have died; their very lives a living sacrifice But they all remembered, they all Remembered, yeah, yeah Instead of walkin' lets march, instead of Words lets speak heart Who needs the sunlight, when freedom reigns?
Yo, she was such a dignified child It been a long while since she seen a Stranger smile Just moved to New York and they all hate her 'cause she can dance Who ever said havin' rhythm means you gotta be tan She was taught to be colorblind but her ears could hear
