We each walk the path that you've chosen I'm ready to meet him cause where I'm living ain't right Browns hate white, white hate black, it's right back to the same fight They got us suspecting a war But the real war is to follow the law of the lord Lord, you left me stranded, and I don't know why Told me to live my life, now I'm ready to die Ready to fly, I cry, looking at the sky screaming why You told me you would take those fears, but you left me with tears. What'd I do so bad that it sent you away from me? Not only sent you away, but made you stay away from me? (My child I'm here, as I've always been It is you who went away and now are back again What did you say, I tell you follow my word, and be true What did you do?) Well the world is cruel (What have you seen?) Darkness and hell at a glance (What do you want?) All I want is another chance (Just because you went away, my doors are not locked Want to come back home? All you got to do is knock) You see I left home a boy, but returned as a man Full grown, and I'm still not able to stand (I gave you a hand) Well, but I was looking the wrong way Figured out the plan, then I started to pray And that prayer, took me from here to over there Back to over here, now I ask you where Where do I belong, do I fit in? Things on my mind, where do I begin? It's easier to sin, but it hurts my heart I'm really trying to win, so where do we start? (Thou shalt not steal) But what if he stole from me? (Thou shalt not kill) But what if he's trying to kill me? (Thou shalt not, take my, name in vain No matter how hard it rains, withstand the pain)
I'm ready to meet him -- our father, who art in heaven I'm not ashamed to ask for guidance at twenty-seven No longer afraid to knock on your door Not scared anymore to lose my life in the war After what I just saw, I'm riding with the Lord Cause I really can't afford to lose my head by the sword And now that I've seen, what I need to see Please take me, where I - need to be (What have you learned?) It's better to tell the truth than to lie (What have you learned?) To love my life until I die (What have you learned?) Violence isn't always the key (What have you learned?) You can't always believe what you see (What have you learned?) It's better to forgive and forget (What have you learned?) Give as you expect to get (What have you learned?) That I can't go on without you (What have you learned?) I must had been a fool to ever doubt you!
