What is so wrong about a man and a man, a woman and a woman?
Oh, the Bible says it’s wrong? That makes it okay to hate them?
Excuse me, sorry, pardon me, but I thought we were told to love
True, you’re afraid, but not of gays or lesbians.
No, you’re afraid of differences, of change.
So damn sorry to burst your bubble, babe,
but wake up and smell the coffee,
you’re living in a world of change.
And there’s nowhere you can run and hide.
So you lash out, cause it’s fight or flight
but flight isn’t an option anymore.
Call others “faggots” cowering behind the keys of a message-board.
But you can’t hide forever, so come out, come out wherever you are
can’t lurk any longer in your mansions and fancy cars.
You gotta step up, own up and realize,
our world is changing before your very eyes.
So while change doesn’t come easy,
and acceptance ain’t breezy,
can we all just try to love each other for once?
Open your eyes and open your heart and take a good look,
maybe then, you’ll finally see.
Why do we hate other people? Because they’re different? Because they don’t believe in the same things as us? Because they have it better than us? I’m not saying that I’m perfect and loving and don’t judge others, but I just wonder why we hate others. When we hate another person, we literally waste some of our own lives as we get ourselves angrier and angrier and more stressed out by thinking about them. Why do we do this? If it’s because we think they’re wrong, why don’t we just let them waste their own time being wrong? Driving ourselves crazy fussing about them won’t change anything. So why do we hate? It’s pointless. I know that we can’t just stop hating others and all of a sudden accept everybody’s differences, but perhaps we could at least try to think about why we feel the need to hate somebody.
