Trouble with the world is we're too busy to think about it all right
Why is there a rebel flag hanging from the state house walls?
Tired of hearin' this shit about heritage not hate
Time to make the world a better place
Why must we hate one another?
Well no matter what we gotta live together
Just that you don't look like me tell me what do you see
When we pass on the street what do you want to see
P.E.'s coming is all I gotta say
Want to turn and run away
They're just telling you how they see it
Right or wrong they don't care
You wish that they would quit

chorus: Drowning in a sea of tears

Hatred trying to hide your fears

Living only for yourself

Hating everybody else cause they don't look like you

Nanci singing it's a hard life wherever you go

About some fat racist living in Chicago

Trying to teach his kids to hate everyone

Well tell me why is that something you want to teach your son?

Why must we hate one another?

When the people in the church, they tell me you're my brother

You don't walk like me

You don't talk like me

Saying go back to Africa

I just don't understand

(chorus) I'm trying to be someone that he could look up to

But when I walk down the street, tell me what do you see

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a man

No I'm not like you

Why do you hate me so

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

Hating everybody else cause they don't look like you
