colored people lyrics – dc talk

pardon me, your epidermis is showing
i couldn’t help but note your shade of melanin
i tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
cause i see (the) beauty in the tones of our skin
we gotta come together, and thank the maker of us all
we’re colored people, and we live in a tainted place
we’re colored people, and they call us the human race
we’ve got a history so full of mistakes
and we are colored people who depend on a holy grace
a piece of canvas is only the beginning
it takes on character with every loving stroke
this thing of beauty is the p*ssion of an artist’s heart
by god’s design, we are a skin kaleidoscope
we gotta come together, aren’t we all human after all?
ignorance has wronged some races
and vengeance is the lord’s
if we aspire to share this sp*ce
repentance is the cure
well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind man
should make it easy for you to see
that these diverse tones do more than cover our bones
as a part of our anatomy
