Lyrics

The 5 W’s
(Lyrics & Music by Rocky Michaels)

Words matter but not by being said
They’re best when turned to action and not just by being read
And we’re all of one race ohh that’s human above it all
A nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all, whoo

Well that ain’t the self-portrait we’ve painted over the years
Division and hatred created from strokes of the fears
But we’re born with this absence oh so for how to heal the world
Let’s all start with who, what, where, when and why, whoo

Well it’s who we are not who others tell us to be
And it’s what we actually do not just what’s said from you and me
And it’s where we aim not where we eventually go, oh-oh
And it’s when we come together not when we stand toe-to-toe
Oh it’s why why why why, hmm-mm-mm

Evolution keeps changing us since way back when
But a revolution needs more than just paper and pen

But we’ve repeatedly proven how kindness and decency can live on and shine
When we come together for the greater good to align, whoo

Well it’s who we are not who others tell us to be
And it’s what we actually do not just what’s said from you and me
And it’s where we aim not where we eventually go, oh-oh
And it’s when we come together not when we stand toe-to-toe
Oh it’s why why why why, hmm-mm-mm

Well it’s who we are not who others tell us to be
And it’s what we actually do not just what’s said from you and me
And it’s where we aim not where we eventually go, whoah-oh
And it’s when we come together not when we stand toe-to-toe
Oh it’s why why why why, hmm-mm-mm

It’s who we are, it’s what we do
It’s where we aim, it’s when we all come together
