"Disease" as written by and Rob/jagger Thomas....
Ask a little girl if she wants a piece of candy
And you'll find yourself in front of a lynch mob or a jury
And they'll read the riot act along with your Miranda warning
And no one's come to bail you out
And it's already morning

[Chorus:]
But you've got to chalk it up to paranoid society
No one lets you get too close
'Coz they don't want to catch your disease

A white girl loves a black boy and her parents can't believe it
'Coz they still believe all good girls don't even try to dream it
His parents are no better 'coz they still believe the myth
If you're born a certain color
That's the color you should be with

[Chorus]

What do you do when your disease is someone else's ignorance
What do you do when your disease is someone else's hatred
What do you do when your disease is what you are?
