How Would You Like It

How Would You Like It

Jem

Put on your clothes
I know what's underneath
You think you're separate from everyone
But it's just from yourself

Without all the colors in the world
There'd be no picture
We are interwoven
More than you'll ever know

So I say, please stop talking to me
I don't agree
How would you like it?
Just 'cause the color of my skin's the same
No, you don't know me
How would you like it?

Please stop, stop right there
With your hypocrisy
Don't wanna hear it
You don't realize if you take away
Any one of us
We all fall down now

I wanted to write
This a long time ago
But I thought someone would say
Who are you to speak of this

Well, I've got eyes and ears and a heart
And I can feel it
And it pains me more than you
Will ever know

And I say, please stop talking to me
I don't agree
How would you like it?
Just cause the color of my skin's the same
Well, you don't know me
How would you like it?

Please stop, stop right there
With your hypocrisy
Don't wanna hear it
You don't realize if you take away
Any one of us
We all fall down now

So sad, so sad
It's said we wouldn't know love without hate
I'd really rather just have the love
I'm tired of our history repeating, enough is enough
Enough is enough, please stop talking

Please stop talking to me
I don't agree
How would you like it?
Just cause the color of my skin's the same
Well, you don't know me
How would you like it?

Oh, shame, shame, shame on you
And your profanity
Can't stand to hear it
Don't you realize if you take away
Any one of us
We all fall down now?

In the end life will go on and on
But I for one am clear
We're all brothers and sisters
