The Great Divide (feat. Yolonda Jones, Jae Jin and Calie Garrett)

from Friends and Foes by Tim Be Told



Can’t you see what’s deep within
Instead of the color of my skin
You and I both cry in pain
When I bleed we bleed the same

If we live or die
Can we leave it better?
Can we make it through together
If we just try
Can we break these lines
Can we blend our colors
Can we maybe reach each other
‘Cross the great divide

Can’t you see the fear inside
Got no money and I got no pride
Tell me pick yourself up it’s not hard
Rich and poor still a world apart

Don’t be yourself they’ll make you pay
So I went and hid myself away
They say that’s for boys and that’s for girls
That is how they split the world

Put away your shield and sword
Drop your gun and fight no more
Say a prayer to the God above
Let’s light a fire fill the world with love
