Whether it be across that sea
Kosove, Baghdad, Korea
Or here at home, right under our fingertips
In new slavery prison systems

Holding one in four black American brothers
The one percent wealthy profiteering
From the business that is war
Yeah, go to war

God is watching us play our ghetto wars
God is watching us play our games
God is waiting for us to overcome
God is wating for us to just love one another

Whether we be cracker or black or
Brown, red, yellow
From the land of sky or sea
We are family
Wake up and see

Our planet is a tiny atom in God's kingdom
It's our only home
A new millennium
Can we all just get along?

God is watching us play our ghetto wars
God is watching us play our games
God is waiting for us to overcome
God is wating for us to just love one another
