It’s so easy to hide our abuses
Blame it all on life, we did not choose this.
So we make up excuses and choose not to see other's bruises
Life turns us all red, yellow, brown, white, and blue
But out of fear we shun them and the black ones too
If we feel the pains that others do
Then why, oh why, are we trying to make us two?
Is it better standing alone?
On today’s breaking news it's a shot-up school
Could we see this coming?
Was his insecurity just too cunning?
The picture on the screen looks just like you
Had someone not stepped in to pull you through?
You believed you were standing alone
What if we all stopped to look past the gate?
Could it be that we won't be too late
Instead of cyber-necting try connecting
Ignoring your neighbor is not good behavior
Do yourself a favor, put down the phone,
There are others moving past you like water 'round a stone
Stop one and scream "I'm standing alone!"
There is life out there and not one clone
Look up and speak to those standing alone.
She’s developing a life, he just started out on his own
But neither can make it so far from home
Our foundation is our history and it hurts looking into the past
But weigh silence carefully as you look down their chosen paths
What you know today could help them last
They’re everywhere out there just standing alone
They look mean and she's too green
What smells so bad? Why is he so sad?
It’s best to focus on today's fad, if I ask it could be bad
Don’t judge me please I’m scared of you can't you see
Without these walls I could get hurt and so could you
Look around I am standing alone too
