  • 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 s***
    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 pa** on the street
    What do you wanna see

    P.E.'s coming is all I gotta say
    Wanna 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

    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

    Nancy 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 wanna 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, I said that
    You don't talk like me, saying
    Go back to Africa
    I just don't understand

    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
    Don't look like you

    Drowing
    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

    Oh drowning
    Hating everybody else
    'Cause they don't look like you
