VERSE1:
Oh the voice of equality
Hearsay's all I find
Put your money where your mouth is
We're running out of time
Another generation
In a world of hurtful words
I listened for a ring of truth
But lies were all I've heard
Won't somebody tell me why we hurt one another?

CHORUS:
Tear down these walls
Once and for all I'm trying to
Tear down these walls
Tear down these walls
Once and for all I'm crying
No man's too great or small to
Tear down these walls

VERSE2:
Enough harsh blows, enough put-downs
We're all one and the same
You are all my brothers
Though I don't know you by name
With drastic measures needed
When ashes turn to tides
Will we stand up for each other?
Or stand on separate sides?
Won't somebody tell me why we hurt one another?

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Let's build a bridge and meet halfway
And if we fall, we'll fall together
I know there once was a dark day
But the past shouldn't linger on forever
Can't we try to see with one eye
In a world full of all our people
