Accept me


You don't like my hide
you don't like my race
you don't like my theology
to humanity, you're a disgrace

if you won't accept i’m equal
well, that's just too damn bad
if you don't change your ignorance
expect those like me to take a stand

and when we do, you point your finger
claiming "see how they are acting"
trying to justify your bigotry
your blindness there's no denying

what are you afraid of?
why can't you acknowledge who i am?
so as long as this is your attitude
society’s resistance is on your hands.

But...
if you don't see my hide
if you don't see my race
if you respect my theology
then there's noone left to hate.
