about

I walk the streets and wonder if I'd die today
I see officer and wonder if he wonders too
The fragments of a nation lie in tatters on the ground
Can you hear the rumble and the tremors that resound?

I listened to the calls and cries
I sat and watched the signs and guns
I saw my face on TV screens
I stood up and began to run

Come on brother, you know we are all the same
Can't we just love one another, see past the roots that constrain
We can't make it right if we're too numb to rise and fight
So come on brother, walk my way

I'm crying for the races held by hands like mine
As we both look at ourselves ashamed of what we find
300 years of hatred cast a body to the ground
His hands held in surrender (4 hours ) searching for some light above

I listened to the calls and cries
I sat and watched the signs and guns
I saw my face on TV screens
I stood up and began to run

Come on brother, you know we are all the same
Can't we just love one another, see past the roots that constrain
We can't make it right if we're too numb to rise and fight
So come on brother, walk my way

They know more about the world, but we know more about what it could be
