Anthrax – Schism Lyrics

Don’t look at me as a white man

I’m just a man

Don’t look at me as a black man

I’m just a man

It takes a man to deal with ignorance

Prove that you can

Like having to climb a barbwire fence

Can ya tell me how it feels to be hated ?

Can ya tell me how it feels to be loved ?

Can you show me what it means to be respected ?

Or is the answer none of the above ?

It’s so easy to hate your brother

It should be hard

It’s so easy to hate your friends

Why ain’t it hard ?

Love and hate come in the dock together

Play your card

Love or hate can rule your life forever

Can ya tell me how it feels to be hated ?

Can ya tell me how it feels to be loved ?

Can you show me what it means to be respected ?

Or is the answer none of the above ?

Hating, fighting, lying, and I can’t take…

Bitching, screwing, crying, and I just hate…

Taking, cheating, spying, and I can’t take…

Hating, fighting, dissing, fighting, fighting

Fighting…

And I can’t take no…

Schism !!

Schism, sk, sk, sk, schism

A house divided can’t stand

Prejudice is un-natural thought

When we were kids

It’s not inherited it’s taught

When we were kids

If we were blind and had no choice

Difference hid

Would we hate each other by the tone of our voice ?

Can ya tell me how it feels to be hated ?

Can ya tell me how it feels to be loved ?

Can you show me what it means to be respected ?

Or is the answer none of the above ?

Hating, fighting, lying, and I can’t take…

Bitching, screwing, crying, and I just hate…

Taking, cheating, spying, and I can’t take…

Hating, fighting, dissing, fighting, fighting

Fighting…

And I can’t take no…

Schism !!

Chorus
