  • Martin Luther King, he had a vision
    (And that's a fact)
    He died so we could see, that was his mission
    (So don't look back)

    There is no division, don't you understand
    The future looks as though it has come around
    And maybe we have finally found our common ground
    We're the children of our father
    If you're looking back don't bother
    We're black and white America

    In 1963 my father married
    (A black woman)
    And when they walked the streets, they were in danger
    (Look what you've done)

    But they just kept on walking forward hand in hand
    The future looks as though it has come around
    And maybe we have finally found our common ground
    We're the children of our father
    If you're looking back don't bother
    We're black and white America

    The future looks as though it has come around
    And maybe we have finally found our common ground
    We're the children of our father
    If you're looking back don't bother
    We're black and white America

    We've waited so long
    We've waited so long

    Black and white America
    There is no division, don't you understand
    The future looks as though it has come around
    And maybe we have finally found our common ground
    We're the children of our father
    If you're looking back don't bother
    We're black and white America

    The future looks as though it has come around
    And maybe we have finally found our common ground
    We're the children of our father
    If you're looking back don't bother
    We're black and white America

    The future looks as though it has come around
    And maybe we have finally found our common ground
    We're the children of our father
    If you're looking back don't bother
    We're black and white America

    Oh, yeah
    Black and white America
    Gonna keep on moving forward
    Oh blow it out Writer/s: CRAIG DAVID ROSS, LENNY KRAVITZ
