When footsteps from that Sunday march, faded out into the dark
The melody blows in to ease the pain
Two-Thousand years and we're still here
Fighting over the same old fear
The muddy steps of hate can't stand this rain
I stand upon this stage, as if it was my altar
I face down all the rage
And no, I will not falter
Say "I'm good enough to play, but not good enough to stay in your heart"

The mat on the floor says "Welcome"
The sign on the door says no......Says "No coloreds allowed, lest your playing in the show"
Well now I've never seen a color
'Cept the ones up in the sky
And when I see this kind of hatred
I die a little inside
I stand upon this stage, as if it was my altar
I face down all the rage
And no, I will not falter
Say "I'm good enough to play, but not good enough to stay"
"And when you finish your song boy, you got to be on your way"
If I'm good enough to play, then I'm good enough to stay in your heart

This one’s for The Godfather, Duke, Ella, and The Count
And for all those who fought their way here, no matter the amount
For all of God’s children, walking through dumpsters in the back
Had to finish the show and leave; Just because his skin was black
They stood up on the stage, as if it was their altar
And faced down all the rage, and no they did not falter
They were good enough to play
But not good enough to stay
And when they finish their songs boy
They had to be on their way
They were good enough to play
And somehow they’ve always stayed in our hearts

And if I’m good enough to play
Then we’ve got to find the space in our hearts
