And I worked so hard to get ahead
Just to fall behind
I've fallen so far behind that I can't see the top
What if I'm afraid, should I be ashamed
Or do I work hard to prove that they're wrong

Well, I know who I am but I sure don't know you
I sure know your kind, cause there's too many of you
You judgmental eyes seem to speak without words
Why you condemn when you don't understand?

Why can't you speak the truth?
We speak our minds, fact without fiction
Why can't you see the truth?
Open your mind, learn for yourself
Make up your mind, we know that actions
Speak louder than words
Why won't you hear the truth?
No one can make up your mind, but you
Too many things we think that we don't say
Why can't you speak you mind? your poisoned ideas
Is what's keeping us back
Maybe it is a lack of something called respect
Something I wish you had, but never will
Well you think that you're better, I think you're wrong
Two bull headed people just can't get along
The results of your actions effect everyone
Why you condemn when you don't understand
Why can't you speak the truth?
We speak our minds-fact without fiction
Why can't you see the truth?
Open your mind, learn for yourself
Make up your mind, we know that actions
Speak louder than words
Why won't you hear the truth?
No one can make up your mind, but you
You
