    Lyrics

    CHORUS:
    We all talk, we all 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
    and look beyond the color of my skin, and then you'll get 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 isn't so peaceful
    Ooh, let freedom ring
    And shake the entire being of America's dream
    Let it ring from mountaintops to valley 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

    CHORUS
    We all talk, we all 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

    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

    CHORUS
    We all talk, we all 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

    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 color blind but her ears could hear
    and every time they talked about her
    her heart shed a tear come on
    yall don't hear me what else can I say
    Listen let me tell you in a different way
    We fight, betray, we know the games we play
    and I can't figure out the reason why
    tell me why, it kills me
    We say we're grown but yet fight over skin tone
    Instead of helping each other
    we'd rather help are own

    Chorus
    We all talk, we all 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
