  • Who's this face in the mirror that I see
    Sometimes confused by the double standards of society
    And maybe I'm wrong about the way I feel
    But then will somebody tell me what is really real

    Now I respect myself
    I respect you too, but in the end it's got to be
    Do unto me as I do to you
    Now I try to tell you it's time
    Separate our wants from our desire
    Separate the truth from the lie
    To live like people so inspire

    It's the world who's out to see
    We should respect humanity
    And it one time seemed to be we could live together peacefully
    If we have truth we can survive
    And for that our forefathers have died
    It should be immoral or a sin
    If it is according to the skin I'm in
    Skin I'm in

    Tell me how many times, how many times can I
    Adjust my attitude to reach & touch the sky
    Basic love is the creed by which I live
    But then sometimes I wonder just how much a man can give
    Gross injustices surround me from the highest levels of power
    And you say these are the people I depend on for my survival
    Is it for real or am I seeing shadows in the dark
    I'll let you tell me, can u tell me brother
    Tell me now

    It's the world who's out to see
    Basic respect humanity
    I'm just trying to be realistic without becoming pessimistic
    If we have hope we can survive
    A damn good reason to stay alive
    Is it immoral or a sin
    It seems to be according to the skin I'm in
    Skin I'm in

    It's the world who's out to see
    Basic respect humanity
    I'm just trying to be for real in a world with less appeal
    I'm so frustrated and flustered
    At what has been reduced to justice
    It is immoral or a sin
    If it is according to the skin I'm in
    Skin I'm in

    One, world,
    Love, people
