It's a peaceful thing to know that freedom as a rule belongs to me
There's something very wrong when the color of a man is all you see
After all this time how can a single voice explain
Any reason for the pain we all have seen
It's not a dream

[Chorus]
One man stood tall
And faced the devil with his back to the wall
And took one step closer to heaven above

So he took a stand and walked where no one else would dare to even try
It was the only way
If not for bravery, the soul would surely die
And right before my eyes he gave his life unselfishly
So that all the father's children could be free
Like you and me

[Chorus]

Before his work is done
We've got to put an end to this game of choosing sides
I want us to be one
And I won't let it go 'till it's over
I'm here waiting

[Chorus]

I'm waiting, waiting
