Nobody Right Nobody Wrong
by Michael Franti



They say you got to chose your side and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong
It ended in a great big fight and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong
Conflict each and every day, at home and in the streets, and in my soul every way
Its hard to keep the faith, when I feels so far away
Times i feel connected, times I'm runnin' away
But Whoa Whoa, Cant you see, all the sickness, hunger, and poverty
War on the land and war on the seas
Whoa, War is a painful thing
One argument that none of us can hide, is the one that's ragin' down deep inside
Tryin' to make a point, or have the last word
But most the time people just tryin' to be heard

They say you got to chose your side and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong
It ended in a great big fight and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong

But how many people never eva broke a rule
And how many people tryin' to get their kids to school
And how many people prayin' they only find a job
And how many people are afraid of gettin' robbed
Whoa whoa, nobody knows
And whoa whoa, only God knows
Numbers escalate, wall street, crime rate
From the Baghdad streets, to my city by the bay

Hey they say you got to chose your side and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong
It ended in a great big fight and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong

And I say, can you say what you mean?
And can you mean what you mean what you say?
And can you say what you mean?
And can you mean what you mean what you say?
And can you say what you mean?
Every single day? Whoa, whoa, whoa

Reach out a hand to somebody who needs a hand.
And reach out a heart to somebody torn apart
Its hard, this livin', this life we've been given
Locked in your soul, or locked up in prison
Remember you have to reach high to be risen
The day you let go is the day you are forgiven

So they say you got to chose your side and, when its done
Nobody right, nobody wrong
Nobody right now
Nobody right, nobody wrong
Nobody right, nobody wrong
And I say, one man got a jet fighter, and the other got a song
Nobody right, nobody wrong
