Dignity
Dignity lyric is on My CD
There are MP3s and Real Audio available


How can I call you brother, then cus you out on the freeway
How can the earth be mother, if I backstab you when you're in my way
How can we both call God our Father, if I refuse to listen to what you say
But I must be your sister, If we are to live, there is no other way

Dignity - why don't we treat eachother respectfully
Dignity - it a word not used anymore

How can I earn your respect, If I won't learn your name
How can you respect me, If I do things to make you ashamed
How can I not be angy, if you don't show me love
Lets put the differences aside, go within, look above

Dignity - why don't we treat eachother respectfully
Dignity - it a word not used anymore

I'm not talking about Euthanasia, abortion or suicide
I'm not talking about starvation in the ghetto
race relations or genocide
What I'm looking at is how
to treat a stranger on the freeway
Do you cut ahead of me in line at the movies
Do you cheat the person you will never meet again
Do you hassle someone and not care if they worry
Dignity - why don't we treat eachother respectfully
Dignity - it a word not used anymore
