As human beings, we're a complex thing
Sometimes so beatiful, other times so vain
We've built an Empire
The blood is on our hands
Genocide and the chains that bind
The consequences ahead

Oh. you ought to know
Oh. you ought to know

Wrote about in history as if it's all O.K.
A race of people murdered,
Another one enslaved
Now our world crumbles,
It's happening within
Open your eyes and realize
The world we're living in

Oh, you ought to know
Oh, you ought to know

If we could focus on important things
Live and let live true freedom
Not everyone's the same
No more war for your god,
No more war for your race,
It's our world, It's what we make it
Make it a better place

Oh, you ought to know
Oh, you ought to know

We can change the world that we're living in
Live and let live true freedom
Let the reign begin
