lyrics

You’d think by now we’d’ve learnt enough to treat each other right
You’d think by now we’d’ve made enough mistakes to gain some foresight
You’d think by now we’d’ve realise it’s not the bark, not even the bite
But it’s surprising, superior it seems, but I don’t think we’re very bright

Why is it we can’t see
We’re much too far from where we need to be?
Why is it we can’t see
We’ve learned nothing from our history?

Click my heels, Over the Rainbow, that’s where I belong
I want to believe it when I say, “There’s No Place Like Home”

You’d think by now we’d’ve learnt to respect the essence of each race
You’d think by now we’d not be afraid of the colour of each face
You’d think by now, with each narrow escape, we’d be thankful for that grace
But it’s embarrassing, superior it seems, but of that I can’t find a trace

Why are we so afraid to try, to trust, to educate?
Why do we elevate ignorance and fear, judgement and hate?

Click my heels, Over the Rainbow, that’s where I belong
I want to believe it when I say, “There’s No Place Like Home”

Someday I wish to find the way
And when I wake up no dismay will find me
My dreams become reality, beyond the colours
That’s where you’ll find me
