this world can turn you upside down
but it don't have to complain
cause I know we've been through hell and back
but we stand from just the same
cause Ive been a thug, Ive been a thief
Ive been a junkie on the streets
Ive been a hippie, Ive been a punk
and Ive done time for being real
all those things don't make me who I am
nooo, no I am just a man
there's no time for livin in the past
nooo, cause life goes by much to fast
because its true
the reggae music soothes my soul
no matter where I happen to be
because its true
we need to open up our eyes
for the future children, for our kind
open hearts open minds
Ive been around this great big world
Ive seen things I cant explain
I stay positive to live my life
do what I can to keep me sane
if you threaten us with words of hate
its because you only hate yourself
your confusions so full of fear
ill love to take the other way
cause its true
we need to open up our eyes
to believe in yourselves day after day
cause its true
we need to know there's a better way
for the future children, for our kind
open hearts open mind
(solo)
open hearts open mind
