Black & White United

1997

Lyrics

Through the eyes of a child
I was gazing at this life
And what did I see hate towards disparity
Couldn't believe my eyes
How could they be so unwise
Is it all jealousy or just dumb stupidity

Everybody can't you see
We should live in peace and harmony
To achieve supremacy
Why don't you believe it, feel it

Black and white united
This is all we're waiting for
Black and white united
It's in you, it's in me

When I looked back in time
In the books of history
War was all I could see
Nothing we've learned so it seems

Tell me, is there a cure
For this global disease
Why are we so ill at ease
Help us Father, if you please

Everybody don't you see
How we put this world in jeopardy
Love will lead to victory
You have to believe it, feel it

Black and white united
This is all we're waiting for
Black and white united
It's in you, it's in me

All your hate and all your fears
All your pain will disappear
You just have to be sincere
Keep the faith and keep your dreams
Don't you lose your self-esteem
That's the way to go up-stream

Black and white united
This is all we're waiting for
Black and white united
It's in you, it's in me

Black and white united
This is all we're waiting for
Black and white united
It's in you, it's in me
