We All Bleed Red

©2014 David Moody

Take the color of your skin and shove it
Shake off your hatred and your fear, and rise above it
Make your peace within, and learn to love it
That’s what I said
So put yourself in your victim’s shoes
Play a happy song when all you’ve got is the blues
Earn your pay, and pay your dues
Try to move ahead

I ain’t playing around
I got this damn thing down
I’m gonna paint this town with the
Sound of what I said
I ain’t your slave or your master
Ain’t like any other other bastard
Your disaster’s coming faster than you know
That’s what I said, and after all…
We all bleed red

I couldn't care less about the color of your skin
‘Cause all that really matters is the person within
If you came to steal what I rightly earned
You've got a big lesson to be learned
If you seek to pull my country apart
You never belonged here from very the start
You don’t have to believe a single word I said
But when it’s all over and done,
We all bleed red

You pushed us to the end of our rope
You promised change, and you promised hope
That was all lies, and the audacity of a dope
That we were fed
We’ve taken much more than we should take
We’ve wakin’ up mad from our own sad mistake
We’ve seen through your disguise – you’re a total fake
That’s what I said
When will you realize – we all bleed red
