​Hard Times

This song is by Pointing Finger and appears on the album Reasons Not Rules (2002).

You think you're so fucking right
I thought judging people by colour
Was like choosing books by its cover
But I'm not surprised
I wonder when people will realize

We're living in hard times
Hard times
People aren't blind to the only thing that shouldn't mind
Shouldn't mind

These masks of fear shaped in our heads
(The mentality of) "you better have a gun or you'll be dead"
So easy to hate so hard to embrace
(Neglecting essence) everybody deserves a chance

We're living in hard times
Hard times
People aren't blind to the only thing that shouldn't mind
Shouldn't mind

We'll speak out, we won't bow down
Fuck your system the time is now
They may set the rules but we play the game
Just refuse to be their pawn
So this picture will fucking stain
What do you have better to show than racial pride
'Cause I only see old fears that you try to hide
Do you even know why you hate?
Why don't you get in someone's shoes and face their fate
What if the world refused to turn
Your country at the dark
Where would you run?
