Lyrics

Written by: MARK BRINE
I was driving down the road, the other dayComing to a red light I stopped there to waitWhen I overheard through my window a man in a crowdScreamin’ “BLACK POWER” with such anger and hate

Sitting there in my sadness my mind drifted backTo the sixties ‘n how I marched and how I  truly believed in all thatYes, that men are equal and universal Brothers in oneLike Jesus once taught us to forgive and to love

But it seems like no matter how hard that we tryt’ make up for wrongs we just can’t let ‘em dieInnately we’re all trapped in our self serving greedFor power and money so no one is free

Yeah, its us against them and them against usThere ain’t hardly no one in this world you can trustExcept  for dear God so we put our beliefin Him ‘n ignore his true road to peace

Yeah, its white against black and poor against richMuslims against Jews, Protestants and Cath’licsYeah, everyone’s fightin’ too self-righteous to seeThat it ain’t good for nothing except more misery

What a sad world it is and it just breaks my heartHow mankind is so hell-bent on bein’ apartWhen the answers so simple ‘n in the words of Our LordBlessed are the peacemakers for they shall be calledThe children of God©1999 Mark Brine Music (BMI)
