lyrics

Four weeks in town
she would never expect
pushed to the ground
with dirty hands around her neck
something she never thought she’d see
a part of her history

I started to call
warn you to stay inside
in your part of town
there’d been this violent crime
but I stopped short of dialing you
because of something that I hold true

You shouldn't have to hide yourself
so you can walk alone at night
and a smile by itself
isn't always an invite

I cannot imagine myself
ever having to worry
What would this life be like if
neither side saw these lines as blurry?

What do you say we behave as equals starting today?
Would it play in a world where we can barely communicate?

To see the world through
those eyes for a moment
to see a world full of eyes
scanning over me

What do you say?
What do you say?
Is the world finally ready to make a change?

Watching the news
it’s everything you’d expect
words that they choose
the images they select
paint a picture of someone who
may have deserved it… sad but true

We’ve a long way to go
as society course-corrects
may these times give us pause
temper our base reflex
so we’ll finally learn to see…
