Skin I'm In

Skin I'm In

Cameo

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 and 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 you tell me brother, tell me now

It's the world who's out to see
We should 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

One world, one love, one people
One world, one love, one people
One world, one love, one people
Love has to be for one world and one man, yeah

It's the world who's out to see
They should 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 riddence to justice
Is it immoral or a sin
If it is according to the skin you're in, skin you're in
