Look Into My Eyes - Outlandish

Look into my eyes Tell me what you see You don't see a damn thing 'cause you can't relate to me You're blinded by our differences My life makes no sense to you I'm the persecuted one You're the red, white and blue Each day you wake in tranquility No fears to cross your eyes Each day I wake in gratitude Thanking God He let me rise You worry about your education And the bills you have to pay I worry about my vulnerable life And if I'll survive another day Your biggest fear is getting a ticket As you cruise your Cadillac My fear is that the tank that has just left Will turn around and come back Yet, do you know the truth of where your money goes? Do you let your media deceive your mind? Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows? Someone tell me ... Ooohh, let's not cry tonight I promise you one day it's through Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters See I've known terror for quite some time 57 years so cruel Terror breathes the air I breathe It's the checkpoint on my way to school Terror is the robbery of my land And the torture of my mother The imprisonment of my innocent father The bullet in my baby brother The bulldozers and the tanks The gases and the guns The bombs that fall outside my door All due to your funds You blame me for defending myself Against the ways of my enemies I'm terrorized in my own land (what) And I'm the terrorist? Yet, do you know the truth of where your money goes? Do you let your media deceive your mind? Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows? Someone tell me ... Ooohh, let's not cry tonight, I promise you one day it's through Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters, Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters, Americans , do you realize that the taxes that you pay Feed the forces that traumatize my every living day So if I won't be here tomorrow It's written in my fate May the future bring a brighter day The end of our wait (pause) Ooohh, let's not cry tonight, I promise you one day it's through Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters, Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters, [with kids] Ohh let's not cry tonight I promise you one day is through Ohh my brothers! Ohh my sisters! Ooh shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more Ohh my brothers! Ohh my sisters!
