OMG i just realized that your profile picture is an illustration from the Dark Tower Series! The best book series i have ever read.
I have never been known to be at a loss for words- but after hearing this song- I WAS- it entranced me- Dr.Kings powerful words hit me like a batting ram- a hollow pain on my stomach- of the cruelity, and pain we can so easliy inflict on each other- not for survival- but for power and greed. The distortion towards the end- removes the humanity from his voice- no soul, no conscience- the very qualities that make us human- leaving us only with robotic emptiness- it made me sad- and scared- is the last line really true- CAN WE NOT CHANGE, CAN WE BE FORGIVEN FOR SINS OF OUR PAST, CAN WE NOT LEARN, CAN WE NOT BE FAIR, CAN WE NOT TOLERATE OUR DIFFERENCES, AND LOVE ALL THAT WE HAVE IN COMMON- REGARDLESS OF COLOR, GENDER OR RACE. I WAS RAISED TO BELIEVE WE CAN- AND I WILL NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN THAT.
