When It's Black And White
A STORY OF TWO WORLDS

A small planet in the vastness of space
Upon this planet were two worlds
One on the south
The other on the north
The world on the north said
The stars on the south side
are just a reflection
of our stars in the north
Likewise
The world on the south said
The stars on the north side
are just a reflection
of our stars in the south

The world on the south claimed
All the water on the north side
had sprung up from reservoirs in the south
Likewise
The world on the north claimed
All the water on the south side
had sprung up from reservoirs in the north

All the people of the north believed
They were the chosen people
yes . they were God's beloved
Only if the people of the south
were like those of us of the north
they could only then be saved
Likewise
All the people of the south believed
They were the chosen people
yes . they were God's beloved
Only if the people of the north
were like those of us of the south
they could only then be saved

Both sides had written their sides down
And both sides called there writing
the word of God
They taught their children from generation to generation
As the people were taught
The people believed

The people of the north were a righteous people
Likewise
The people of the south were a righteous people
Their righteousness made them zealous
to do the right thing
Somebody had to save the world

So the righteous of the south
waged war with the north
It was necessary to put things
right so that they may learn the
right way
Likewise
The righteous of the north
waged war with the south
It was necessary to put things
right so that they may learn the
right way

A few would die
but for the sake of a new and
better world
it would be a worthy death

Righteous people by the millions
entered the gates of heaven daily
until a billion had died
and there was not enough
resources to fight with

They stood before the Lord
and the Lord wept, saying
My beloved, whom I have created
why have you killed each other
What was in your heart

You on the south
I planted the knowledge
of wind, soil and water

You on the north
I planted the knowledge
of stars, sun and moon

If you wanted a new and better world
You should have worked together
Instead
Out of your self-righteousness
you destroyed each other

I created beauty
You created hell
Daily my heart cried because
of you

And the Lord walked away
