Well, it’s so hard to face that in this day and age
Somebody’s race could trigger somebody’s rage
And 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
And ignorant mongers, no area’s gray
Could 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
