I am puzzled / I am baffled / how it happened in the blink of an eye / the discussion turned rough and / now it almost feels like a fight / what’s so wrong with integration? /
if we choose to be human and kind / we can train our social muscle / and practise living with an open mind // They say I’m looking at the world through rose-colored glasses / hooked on the hashtags never by the masses / but I listened carefully in history classes / They say ethical living could be the latest fashion / righteous acting up for attention / how outrageous / who’s courageous? // No, no, no, it ain’t a phase / your hate speech won’t make me straight / or push us back into a place / where we finally misbehave // Hey, hey / don’t get me started / hey, hey / it’s way too important / heya / heya / heya / hear me now // I won’t stop stepping forward and / I won’t stop thinking forward and / I won’t stop looking forward to this // They say I’m looking at the world through rose-colored glasses / led by the hashtags / blind to the masses / and my protest will be blasted / cause goody-two-shoes is written across my forehead / oh I’m so naive / being friends with refuggees / in humanity I do believe //
[...Ready as I’ll ever be]
They’re trying to rewrite history,
no mystery how they’re doin’ this business.
Some reckon that blissful ignorance
Is preferable to
“Getting all deep on it.”
But We wanna see tolerance
Overcome the odds against:
NO ONE WANNA HAVE LESS...
still We might have to sacrifice
some of the nicer things in life
If equality can ever be a possibility.
Check the soliloquy
That I’m rocking onna public property– properly.
Make ‘em wanna get up on the downstroke,
Townsfolk! Crowd around the sound and soak it up.
It’s like Laura said, We’ve got to look FORWARD.
If it’s naïve to dream of a World without War in it,
go ahead and pour scorn on a Gutmensch
going too far with it.
No, no, no it ain’t a phase / your hate speech won’t make me straight / and show me how to misbehave // I won’t stop stepping forward and / I won’t stop thinking forward and / I won’t stop looking forward to this / and on top of it I am still looking forward
