“You are Me” – Kate Benham

YOU ARE ME (4:49 min) by Kate Benham

see the black man, see the white man / see the wrong man, see the right man

all of these categories are not reality / we all share a common identity, you are me

see the good man, see the bad man / see the saved man, see the damned man

judging others judges you, let me jog your memory / remember the family tree? you are me

you are me. we’re light / but you’ve chosen to live blindly in lies

coz to see will cost you all you idolize / it is really gonna blow your disguise

with equality springing up before your eyes/ one man is standing up right before your eyes

why does it disturb you when i say every man’s offense has been taken away?

and why does it enrage you when i say let’s share love and peace and grace or haven’t you got any to give away?

you have chosen to live blindly in lies coz to see will cost you all you idolize

and it is really gonna blow your disguise with unity there springing up before your eyes

one man is standing up right before your eyes and everything’s alright

i saw mountains tumble down and valleys rise up

it was the great universal equalizer / a new law of nature wrapped the earth like a sea

and its atmosphere affects the human race equally

so now i’m hearing weeping, i hear gnashing of teeth / it is you realizing you’re not preferred over me

and all the staircases you bought somehow seem to have left you a little short now that you are me

we’re light / we are family / we’re all beautiful and free

we are redeemed humanity / when will you dare to see that you are me?

you are me, we’re light.
