Common Ground

lyrics

INTRO:
Let me get on my podium and speak to the people

VERSE 1:
My people mad. They people pissed
Yet we live together within all of this
A lot of pointing fingers. A lot of emotion
A lot of mistrust. Nobody staying open
Another mass shooting at a concert & a church
We both got love ones resting in the dirt
Just to disagree. Can anybody see
The hate is only thing that kills you & me?
Some are barely rich. Some are barely poor
Some are inside. Some are knocking at the door
Through all differences, through all of the pain
No one will except that basically we are the same
We can't stay the same. Something's gotta change
We keep on fighting with still nothing to gain
This ain't no kumbaya. At least not yet
Until both sides can forgive & respect

CHORUS:
We're all the same inside
We need to be on common ground right now
But all we do is fight
We need to be on common ground right now
We are both wrong & right
We need to be on common ground right now
Let's move on with our life
We need to be on common ground right now

VERSE 2:
I wish I could fully extend my arms
To give love back like I was taught when I was born
But people will hug you, and stab you in the back
History has taught us a lot about that
Those are just the facts. Should I take the risk
Or is it really better to solve problems with my fists
Yell, cuss & scream at another human being
The division is felt even though it's unseen
It's getting obscene. I wanna close my eyes
I wanna close my ears. All this I despise
It so unwise. My heart's so conflicted
We can't unify. Our cultures restrict it
I'll go about my business & keep to myself
But when it goes down, I'm gonna need some help
Love thy neighbor but we can't even speak
Without all the judgment and judgement makes us weak

CHORUS

VERSE 3:
We in the same town. Shop at the same stores
Work at the same jobs. Walk on the same floors
We all bleed red. Breathe from the same sky
And eventually one day we all gonna die
But we barely try to sit at the same table
Got our own agendas. Acting unstable
We rather let the fables of the past fill our heart
The race can't advance until it makes a start
You got different beliefs. You got different skin
You different ways, let's not pretend
But do my ways offend what you do so much
Or is it just yall don't know enough about us
Take a little time. Open your mind
That goes for us too. Let's not be confined
Cause we alive in Garden of creation
We should live together & not in separation

CHORUS

ENDING:
Our life
We need to be on common ground right now
Our life
We need to be on common ground right now
We are one people
We need to be on common ground right now
We are one people, yeah
