I don't want to be better like you
Lust in your heart and I'm searching for truth
I don't want to be right by your side
Burning your cross then telling your lies
I don't want to wear a hood on my head
Shout praise to god and then dealing in death
This is not the devil making his plans
Men in high places and shaking of hands

I feel I'm ready.

(Martin Luther King: With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, with this faith, we will be able to stand up for freedom together...)

Make yours mine
What's the point in holding onto time?
I've forgotten
What's the point in holding on?

I won't make a man fall to his knees
Beg for his life and then pray for release
Sheets of white clothed leaders of men
Colour their hands in the colour of red

I feel I'm ready.

(Martin Luther King: With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together...)

Make yours mine
What's the point in holding onto time?
I've forgotten
What's the point in holding on?

    General CommentThe think this song is about racial beliefs and the amount of discrimination there is in the world today.

    I reckon the first verse is a reference to the Ku Klux Klan and how they burned crosses during communion with the line:

    'I don't want to be right by your side
    Burning your cross then telling your lies'

    However, the song as a whole is pretty much summed up by Martin Luther King's speech showing strong opinions of racism and how it is one of the main problems of the world today, causing all sorts of globalised problems.
