Examines how we view the "other" side and calls for a change, now.
Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
And now
Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
But now

They say it was better then
They say it was better when
We were all strangers
We were all unknowns
They say we were together
When together meant to weather
The storms, the battles, the wars
Against each other, against one another

Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
And now
Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
But now

Now we know one another
We know why our brothers
Our sisters, our moms, and our dads
Want to hurt us so bad
And they too may know why it is
We feel we must hurt them
Yet we say, no matter the winner
“I am not the murderer, the killer, the sinner”

Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
And now
Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
But now

Now we can fix this
Now that we know
We are the same
We can stop
We can stop
Let's stop then

Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
But now
Then and now
Then and now
They say it was better then
It’s now
