Look Into My Eyes – Outlandish

Look into my eyes – Tell me what you see – You don’t see a damn thing – ’cause you can’t relate to me – You’re blinded by our differences – My life makes no sense to you – I’m the persecuted one – You’re the red, white and blue

Each day you wake in tranquility – No fears to cross your eyes – Each day I wake in gratitude – Thanking God He let me rise – You worry about your education – And the bills you have to pay – I worry about my vulnerable life – And if I’ll survive another day – Your biggest fear is getting a ticket – As you cruise your Cadillac – My fear is that the tank that has just left – Will turn around and come back

Yet, do you know the truth of where your money goes? – Do you let your media deceive your mind? – Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows – Has our world gone all blind? – Do you know the truth of where your money goes? – Do you let your media deceive your mind? – Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows?
Someone tell me…

Ooohh, let’s not cry tonight – I promise you one day it’s through – Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters – Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain’t with us no more – Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters

See I’ve known terror for quite some time – 57 years so cruel – Terror breathes the air I breathe – It’s the checkpoint on my way to school – Terror is the robbery of my land – And the torture of my mother – The imprisonment of my innocent father – The bullet in my baby brother – The bulldozers and the tanks – The gases and the guns – The bombs that fall outside my door – All due to your funds

You blame me for defending myself – Against the ways of my enemies – I’m terrorized in my own land- But am I the terrorist?

Yet, do you know the truth of where your money goes? – Do you let your media deceive your mind? – Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows – Has our world gone all blind? – Do you know the truth of where your money goes? – Do you let your media deceive your mind? – Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows? – Someone tell me…

Ooohh, let’s not cry tonight, I promise you one day it’s through – Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters, – Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain’t with us no more – Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters,

America, do you realize that the taxes that you pay – Feed the forces that traumatize my every living day – So if I won’t be here tomorrow – It’s written in my fate – May the future bring a brighter day – The end of our wait

(pause)

Ooohh, let’s not cry tonight, I promise you one day it’s through – Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters, – Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain’t with us no more – Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters,

Ohh let’s not cry tonight I promise you one day is through – Ohh my brothers! Ohh my sisters! – Ooh shine a light for every Soul that ain’t with us no more – Ohh my brothers! -Ohh my sisters!
