I'm Not Here To Confess My Sins
    Or To Be Ashamed

We're black
We're white
Day and night
On the right side
And on the left side
There's two sides
To every coin
You show me one side
I see the other
Defenses are mounted
And I just want to be your friend
Why do we pretend
When God created black
God created white
When God created day
God created night
When God created the left
God created the right
It's alright

I've been nice
    Showing my true self
You don't have to attack my honesty
    To protect yourself from me
