Please tell me your age and financial status (ie middle class, wealthy etc) and tell me what these lyrics mean to you. Please! I'm Doin a project !



This ain't comin' from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand

When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there's shelter over the poorest head
We shall be free

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
'Cause we shall be free
When we're free to love anyone we choose
When this world's big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free
We shall be free

We shall be free
Have a little faith
Hold out
'Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there's only one race and that's mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free

I think its a great song, wish it could be real some day. I think its the differences in power, wealth and status that can cause so much hate. I'm 24 and working poor I guess. No assistance. No cable or internet, no nice stuff, but we can pay bills and occasionally eat out.

And it just means that the racism needs to stop.

42 and middle class. To me the lyrics are idealistic and unrealistic. It'll never happen.

31 - middle class

It means stop racism, take care of our land and waters, love from within not whats on the outside and help those in need. We are all equal. Then we will all be much happier and have inner peace that will make u all rich inside. O.o

 Hey! It's Garth Brooks. LOL 
It's inspiring. It's also a little sad that it hasn't happened yet, that we are still so far from that point.
I am 31, lower middle class/above poverty level (no PA)

Don't laugh, but the first thing I thought of (and this is on a plaque in my kitchen)

Peace, Love and Good Will for All.
