    Thought you wanted to know
    we talk of human rights
    is it just hype
    or do they sometimes apply
    is it "why ask why"
    since when is it wrong to be real
    thought you wanted to know
    what part of the game is that
    don't we want freedom of speech
    don't we want truth
    don't we want privacy without
    peering leering eyes
    or do we want lies
    let me know
    I thought we stood for good
    stood for togetherness
    I don't want to be a part
    of turning on each other
    too much black on black crime
    as it is
    how much truth is too much truth
    I mean you gotta let me know
    don't want to waste nobody's time
    don't want to waste mine
    I been doin' this thang
    wanting to bring folks together
    for the greater good
    where you been
    or is that a new exclusive club
    in the making
    spoils for the taking
    thought you wanted to know

    we should stand for human rights,
    and not for humans fault.
    for if we do--what is the cause of war,
    that we so called fought.............(nice work)

    Cindy - Thanx. Much love!

    lilcherry - I agree. There are far too many double standards.
    I wish we'd realize that when you stand by and watch an injustice
    done to your sister or brother you are opening the very same door for it to happen to you. Sigh. Such is life...
