Rodney King uttered these words back on May 1, 1992, during the Los Angeles rebellion after he was brutally beaten by the police. He was trying to urge for calm. We all need a little more of his compassion in our souls.


In a distant dark corner in a whisper barely heard. People talk of hate in patriotic words. Blindly point a finger. Is somebody hurt? It's not my problem they got what they deserved.
Some draw a line deep in the sand. Don’t come across to my side again. Keeps them away keeps us within. Who is the prisoner and who is us and them?
(Chorus) What will it take? What will it take? What will it take to change your mind? Can't we all just get along? Can't we all just get along? Can't we all just get along? We got to find a way. Hey, Hey.
Some speak with passion some speak with pain. Some cut you down because of your name. Your skin is different your eyes aren’t the same. Your God ain’t my God so who is to blame? -Chorus-
