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?
