Well, it's so hard to face
That in this day and age
Somebody's race could trigger somebody's rage
Somebody's preference can drive some total stranger
To make somebody, somehow
Feel the wrath of their anger

Why were we put here?
What for? We're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate

Now why so cut and dry?
A simple concept missed
Give tolerance a try
This confusion still exists
Ignorant mongers, no area's gray
Couldn't be any wronger in this age and day

Why were we put here?
What for? We're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate
Get that straight

Now how far have we come?
How come there still are some?
Who won't let some march to the beat of a different drum
To face it, it's so hard
You must be on your guard
It's not okay
And you're not free to be a different way

Why were we put here?
What for? We're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate

Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
If we don't, then who will? Shame on us
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
Let's face it, the time is upon us
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
If we don't, then who will? Shame on us
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
Let's face it, the time is upon us
