lyrics

I know
I know, my brother, that your heart is dying
And I know
I know, my sister, that you're tired of trying
And we used to say
That we shall overcome
But with all the dues that they refuse to pay
We've grown cold and numb
And I know
I know how long they've tried to break your spirit
And although we say it loud, it ain't so loud that they can hear it
And even when they do, believing it ain't true
They just deny
They can't stand when we demand that they should see
This land of the free is just a lie they try to justify

CHORUS:
And I know, I know, I know
This world is so divided
And you know, you know, you know
But what are you gonna do about it?

You gotta do something, say something

And i know
I know, my friend, you say they can't divide us
And I know
I know, my friend, I've seen you stand beside us
But you say to me,
That we've come so far
And yes, I hear you, but it's plain to see
I'm not where you are
And i know
I know, my friend, I know, and no, you're not mistaken
But you know
You know, I know you know - it's not your body breaking
And when you say to me
"It's best to wait and see, and not to fight"
All this time now I'm just trying to get from A to B
When you went straight to C
And that ain't right, you know it just ain't right

CHORUS:
And I know, I know, I know
This world is so divided
And you know, you know, you know
But what are you gonna do about it?

You gotta do something, say something
