How Would You Like It - Jem

Put on your clothes,
I know what's underneath
You think you're separate from
everyone, but it's just
from yourself
Without all the colors in the
world, there'd be no picture
We are interwoven more than
you'll ever know

So I say

Please stop talking to me
I don't agree
How would you like it
Just 'cause the color of my
skin's the same no you
don't know me
How would you like it
Please stop, stop right there
with your hypocrisy
Don't wanna hear it
You don't realize if you take
away any one of us
We all fall down now

I wanted to write this a
long time ago
But I thought someone would
say who are you to
speak of this
Well I've got eyes and ears
and a heart and I can feel it
And it pains me more than you
will ever know

And I say

Please stop talking to me
I don't agree
How would you like it
Just 'cause the color of my
skin's the same well you
don't know me

How would you like it
Please stop, stop right there
with your hypocrisy
Don't wanna hear it
You don't realize if you take
away any one of us
We all fall down now

So sad, so sad

It's said we wouldn't know
love without hate
I'd really rather just have
the love
I'm tired of our history
repeating enough is enough
Enough is enough
Please stop talking

Please stop talking to me
I don't agree
How would you like it
Just 'cause the color of my
skin's the same well you
don't know me
How would you like it
Oh, shame, shame,
shame on you and
your profanity

Can't stand to hear it
Don't you realize if you take
away any one of us
We all fall down now

In the end life'll go on and on
But I for one am clear
we're all brothers and sisters
