Black And White (The String Cheese Incident)

Spend our lifetime reading Books that we've been told to Are we catching the meaning? Are we really supposed to? It's time that we start seeing The shades of color between the lines Find a true way of being Don't you think we're wasting time Have you heard of Douglas town? And the Irish of another skin A million people have died there How come we never heard a thing? You envision a world without chains Listen do you hear the call? Dr. King and those who rise and fall Fought so hard to bring peace to all Can't you see That not everything is black and white? Can't you see, That we need each other's strength and might? In this world of illusion It's so easy to be blinded Out of created confusion Separation in minded See if we can believe in The truth that all our children know It's about time we start thinking It's not all about what we're told Can't you see That not everything is black and white? Can't you feel That we need each other's strength and might? When we believe That there's no need for these walls to grow We'll all see That it takes all colors to make this rainbow Higher, higher, higher....(and so on)
