Colorblind (King Emily)

I used to think I was the same as everyone 'Til I heard a word that turned it all around Came home from school one day confused with who I was I didn't understand the hatred I had found And in my mind were many questions A child of interracial love And I'm askin' Are we so different? Or Are we the same? Is it what we feel inside? They say it's ignorance But when will it change? Do we see in black and white? As I grew older I had different sets of friends Tryin' to find the place where I could be myself Night after night I'd watch my parents go on stage And the music always healed the pain I felt And then one day it spoke to me And said, "Use me to release what's on your mind" Now I'm singin' Are we so different? Or Are we the same? Is it what we feel inside? They say it's ignorance But when will it change? Do we see in black and white? Are we so different? Or Are we the same? Is it what we feel inside? They say it's ignorance But when will it change? Do we see in black and white? It happens everyday Don't want to complicate These colors in my picture I just find See my view in life is different Now I know and I can live it But these questions must be answered all the time So I'm askin' you Are we so different? Or Are we the same? Is it what we feel inside? They say it's ignorance But when will it change? Do we see in black and white? Are we so different? Or Are we the same? Is it what we feel inside? They say it's ignorance But when will it change? Do we see in black and white?
