"Let's Face It" as written by and Dicky/albert Barrett....
It's so hard to face
That in this day and age
Somebody's race
Could trigger somebody's rage
And somebody's preference
Can drive some total stranger to make somebody,
Somehow feel the wrath of their anger
Why were we put here? What for? we're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate
Why so cut and dry
A simple concept missed
Give tolerance a try
This confusion still exists ignorant mongers
No area's gray
Couldn't be any wronger in this age and day
Why were we put here? What for? we're unsure
We sure weren't put here to hate
Be racist, be sexist
Be bigots, be sure
We won't stand for your hate
Now how far have we come?
How come there still are come
Who won't let come
March to the beat of a different drum
To face it, it's so hard you must be on your guard
It's not okay
And you're not free to be a different way
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
If we don't, then who will? shame on us
Let's try to erase it, it's time that we face it
Let's face it, the time is upon us

    General CommentThis song is rad. I love the message they put forth and the fact that their energy makes you listen. I used part of this song as my senior quote in high school cause I wanted to let people no that racism and bigotry are problems that have to dealt with.

    General Commentthis song just really puts into perspective the importance of the principle of acceptance and should really just make any hateful person question themselves regarding why they hate.

    General Commentthis song just makes me smile. i'm tired of all these nazi punks running around polluting our scene with their bigotry and hate. everyone just needs to sit down, smoke a joint with their black friend, and listin to some ska music. peace, love, and unity
