No Matter What!
 

Are we in tolerance, or are we intolerant


Wars are waged because intolerance rules our heads
Fear born from ignorance so quick turns into hate
Are we misguided by the dogma shoved down our throats?
What does it take to learn that tolerance equals love


When we take some time to know those we think we loathe
We will discover that they’re more like us than we thought
religion, sexual orientation, gender, color of skin
or nationality, not valid to provoke hate within


If we’re gay: “promiscuous!”  NO!
If we’re dark: “we’re thugs!” NO!
If we’re white: “we’re racist!” NO!
If we’re Muslim: “terrorist!” NO!

If pro-choice, “we’re killers!” NO!
If pro-life, “fanatics!” NO!
If we’re rich, “we’re greedy!” NO!
If we’re poor, “we’re lazy!” NO!

If immigrant, “illegal!” NO!
If tattooed, “a gangster!” NO!


Is it really crazy
to keep wishing for…


Peaceful coexistence

without the hatred

without the judgment

without the fear


Are we in tolerance, or are we intolerant


Tolerance, Intolerance: which do we choose?
Make a conscious effort or else we lose


(Guitar Solo)


Judging and demonizing those who judge and condemn
perpetuates the very cycle we wish to break
But tolerance requires inconceivable strength
self-control is so much harder than turning violent


If we’re gay: “promiscuous!”  NO!
If we’re dark: “we’re thugs!” NO!
If we’re white: “we’re racist!” NO!
If we’re Muslim: “terrorist!” NO!

If pro-choice, “we’re killers!” NO!
If pro-life, “fanatics!” NO!
If immigrant, “illegal!” NO!
If tattooed, “a gangster!”


Can’t we wish for

peaceful coexistence

without the fear


Are we in tolerance, or are we intolerant


It is not a question of who’s right or wrong. That’s not the point at all


Tolerance, Intolerance: which do we choose?
Make a conscious effort or else we lose


Are we in tolerance, or are we intolerant


What the fuck do we choose?!

Keep your cool
