Don't look at me as a white man
I'm just a man
Don't look at me as a black man
I'm just a man

It takes a man to deal with ignorance
Prove that you can
Like having to climb a barbwire fence

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Can you show me what it means to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above?

It's so easy to hate your brother
It should be hard
It's so easy to hate your friends
Why ain't it hard?

Love an' hate come in the deck together
Play your card
Love or hate can rule you life forever

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Show me what it means to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above?

Hating, fighting, lying an' I can't take
Bitching, screwing, crying an' I just hate
Taking, cheating, spying an' I can't take
Hatin' an' fighting an' dissin' an' fighting an' fighting
An' fightin' an' I can't take no

Schism, schism, sch-sch-sch-schism
A house divided can't stand
Schism, sch-sch-sch-schism
A house divided can't stand

Prejudice is unnatural thought
When we were kids
It's not inherited, it is taught
When we were kids

If we were blind and had no choice
Differences hid
Would we hate each other by the tone of our voice?

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Can you show me what it means to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above?

Hating, fighting, lying an' I can't take
Bitching, screwing, crying an' I just hate
Taking, cheating, spying an' I can't take
Hatin' an' fightin' an' dissin' an' fighting an' fighting
An' fightin an' I can't take no

Schism, schism, sch-sch-sch-schism
A house divided can't stand
Schism, sch-sch-sch-schism
A house divided can't stand

An' I can't take no schism
Schism, sch-sch-sch-schism
A house divided can't stand
Schism, sch-sch-sch-schism
A house divided can't stand
