​Come As You Are

This song is by The String Cheese Incident and appears on the album 'Round The Wheel (1998).

In the past we've been told to fear
Strange new things as they're coming near
Sometimes we listen without heed or care
We let our minds close before we see what is there
It's not like we try to let the world fly by
Without thinking of truth or what is all right
So if you stop to consider a world that is bigger
We might just stop and consider this world

Come as you are, Oh come as you are (x4)

There's no room for anger and hatred
Of people and things we have not faced yet
We're so quick to condemn by the color of skin
Before we look closely at what makes a heart beat
So if you take a step backwards
And see how awkward it is to stay closed and protected in castles
You may come to a new understanding of freedom
When you wave your arms and shout in the air
