You Don't Have Far to Walk (not like them)

They talk about the people
As if they really care
But where is the water?
Where is the border?
Where is God?

They walk across holy ground
As the prophets so it is written
Where is the man who understands
The life we lead now has changed
Is it only ours to keep?

How can I open up my heart
When my mind tells me no
I dream of desire for me only
Why not freedom?
Who taught me to think this way?

How can I hate a poor man
What advantage gained has he?
There is no belief except food
The children play anyway
Hoping the past is not the end
