lyrics

I long for the day
my color, my kind
my gender my race
won’t trouble your mind

I question it all
The hatred of man
To judge and to fall
Where it all began

They’re different than you
Their faces, their skin
The things that they do
And teach to their kin

She’s strong and she’s proud
Ascending to mountain tops she reigns
He puts her in shrouds
To stifle his pain

Justice,
Mankind
Freedom
All relies on you

You and me and
The power
To stand up for

Our own
Difference
Harness
Our love for equality

The children will starve
The parents will cry
Their spirits at sky
The tears in their eyes

I long for the day
my color, my kind
my gender my race
won’t trouble your mind
