(Genocide)
(It means extermination;)
(The killing off of an entire people.)
(That’s practically what we did to the Indians)

I don’t really like you,
But it’s not my right to
Prejudge or spite you.
Even though I’d like to

I don’t have a reason
Don’t think I need one
It’s my contribution
To societal relations

Cause Tolerance…
Is all that I’ll concede.
Tolerance…
Is all I’ll concede yeah.

I know you would like it
If I would recognize it
It would be to your benefit
If you realize that.

That I don’t really like you,
But it’s not my right to
Prejudge or spite you.
Although that’s what I might do.

(Genocide. )
(The killing off of an entire people.)
(Genocide.)
(Extermination.)
(Genocide.)

Tolerance…
Is all that I can see
Tolerance…
Is all that I can see yeah.

(Genocide.)
(That’s practically what we did to the Indians)

Cultural mutilation
Mental segregation,
Ritual separation.
Almost without exception.

These days things are better
Cultures comes together,
But better is not acceptable.
Because tolerant is not respectful.

Tolerance…
Is all that I can see
Tolerance…
Is all that I can see

Tolerance…
Is all that I can see
Tolerance…
All that I can see
Yeah... yeah...

I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate you
I will only tolerate

    General CommentI just love this song. It's something that I can relate to. I guess I'm not the only native who feels this way sometimes.
