"People Are People (Depeche Mode cover)" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

So now there's differents colors
And there's differents breeds
And different people
Have different needs
It's obvious you hate me
Though I've done nothing wrong
I've never even met you
So what I could I have done

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

So now you're punching
And you're kicking
And you're screaming at me
You're relying on my common decency
I know it hasn't surfaced
But I'm sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel
From my head to my fist (Boom)

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
Can't you understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully
People are people
So why should it be
That you and I should get along awfully

People are people
Why should it be that we get along so awfully
(Can't you understand) why should it be
Can't we get along cause people are people
(Can't you understand) Why should it be
Can't we get along cause people are people
(Can't you understand) Why should it be
Can't we get along cause people are people

    General CommentLol yeah this song has been done so many times.. This is by far the best of covers.. Good catchy chorus find myself singing along all the time...

    Shows Dope's variety I guess.. Also I'm not sure but I don't think this version is about racism.. maybe a violence fetish or something..

    General CommentThis is a cover of a Depeche Mode song. Dope does a lot of covers. Fuck Tha Police, this song, You Spin Me Round, and Rebel Yell are the ones that I know of.

    General CommentIm glad someone else noticed this.....

    This is a cover song.

    Look it up under Depeche Mode, Though the original is shorter, the Dope cover is longer and I like it slightly better than the original.

    It is not the opposite.
