Rap section:
D      Em     Bm     G
Riff 6 times under Rap
As I travel through this world it's gettin clearer to me
Some of the things I believed, I'm casting out to the seas
And as I'm waving my goodbyes to the lies I was taught
Gotta searchlight my soul, cuz some of them I bought into
They grip, like shadows in my mind
Unknowingly they shapin' how I'm viewing humankind
Reaching past the differences, the colours we were suited in
The places we were born, and the cultures we were rooted in
Children of God, ain't that all of us
How we gonna hate when compassion's what called to us
Love, O love, you got me covered
I'm lettin' go of enemies and holdin' on to brothers

When I look into the face
Of my enemy
I see my brother
I see my brother

Forgiveness is the garment
Of our courage
The power to make the peace
We long to know
Open up our eyes
To see the wounds that bind
All of humankind
May our shutter hearts
Greet the dawn of life
With charity and love

Rap section

As I travel through this world
It’s gettin clearer to me
Some of the things I believed,
I’m casting out to the seas
And as I’m waving my goodbyes
To the lies I was taught
Gotta searchlight my soul,
Cuz some of them I bought into
They grip like shadows in my mind
Unknowingly they shapin
How I’m viewing humankind
Reaching past the differences,
The colors we were suited in
The places we were born,
And the cultures we were rooted in
Children of God, aint that all of us
How we gonna hate
When compassion’s what called to us
Love, oh love, you got me covered
I’m lettin’ go of enemies
And holdin’ on to brothers
