Don't look at me as a white man
I'm just a man
Don't look at me as a black man
I'm just a man
It takes a man to deal with ignorance
Prove that you can
Like having to climb a barbwire fence

Can ya tell me how it feels to be hated ?
Can ya tell me how it feels to be loved ?
Can you show me what it means to be respected ?
Or is the answer none of the above ?

It's so easy to hate your brother
It should be hard
It's so easy to hate your friends
Why ain't it hard ?
Love and hate come in the dock together
Play your card
Love or hate can rule your life forever

Can ya tell me how it feels to be hated ?
Can ya tell me how it feels to be loved ?
Can you show me what it means to be respected ?
Or is the answer none of the above ?

Hating, fighting, lying, and I can't take...
Bitching, screwing, crying, and I just hate...
Taking, cheating, spying, and I can't take...
Hating, fighting, dissing, fighting, fighting
Fighting...
And I can't take no...
Schism !!

Schism, sk, sk, sk, schism
A house divided can't stand

Prejudice is un-natural thought
When we were kids
It's not inherited it's taught
When we were kids
If we were blind and had no choice
Difference hid
Would we hate each other by the tone of our voice ?

Can ya tell me how it feels to be hated ?
Can ya tell me how it feels to be loved ?
Can you show me what it means to be respected ?
Or is the answer none of the above ?

Hating, fighting, lying, and I can't take...
Bitching, screwing, crying, and I just hate...
Taking, cheating, spying, and I can't take...
Hating, fighting, dissing, fighting, fighting
Fighting...
And I can't take no...
Schism !!

Chorus
