This song is by 7 Seconds and appears on the album Ourselves (1988).

All my days in so many ways I've seen it
This prejudice I've seen it twist and turn
I've cried at thoughts of not bein' able to stop it
And now I ache away for it's here so strong today

What are you organizing for?
Put up another door
Just stop and look around
Say you must see
The blindness we have here

You say you've heard it all before
And you'll hear it again
Just go ahead and close us off
But you'll still feel the pain that you create

Our peace comes from within
And I think war does too
Believe in love and you'll get what is due

Skin, yellow, red, brown, black and white
Can't stop to see that no, no
Only single hearts and minds inside our heads

What are you organizing for?
Put up another door
Just stop and look around
Say you must see
The blindness we have here

You say you've heard it all before
And you'll hear it again
Just go ahead and close us off
But you'll still feel the pain that you create

Oh Gandhi, when you look at us
Does your heart ache?
How could you think that
Peace in this world has a place?

Well, I believe in peace not pride or race
To set our future days, future ways
And I can only hope
We don't keep blowin' it all away

What are you organizing for?
Put up another door
Just stop and look around
Say you must see
The blindness we have here

You say you've heard it all before
And you'll hear it again
Just go ahead and close us off
But you'll still feel the pain that you create
