letra de ignorance ain’t bliss – avb

(spoken)
this is a song about perceptions, paradigms, and politics
borne out of the prejudices that plague us as a people
get the point?
then lets proceed…

ignorance ain’t bliss when it comes in the form of a dis
prejuidice and racial perception from a distance breeds misconceptions
a man’s skin color ain’t the place to start
you gotta get close, get into the heart
otherwise, there’s a lot you’ll miss
prejudicial ignorance sho ain’t bliss
get this

chorus:
what makes you think he would let you get by,
using ignorance as an alibi?
think again, there seems to be something you’ve missed
prejudicial ignorance sho ain’t bliss (sho ain’t bliss)
sho ain’t bliss (sho ain’t bliss)

society’s confused when it comes to the way that we view
people from an outward perspective, with appearance we’re so selective
a man’s discarded if he dresses oddly
we avoid those with handicapped bodies
the r-t-rded simply dismissed
prejudicial ignorance sure ain’t bliss

repeat chorus

what makes you stop short of makin’ that move
to break the comfort zone you’re accustomed to?
open eyes, realize the truth you can’t dismiss
prejudicial ignorance sho ain’t bliss (sho isn’t, sho isn’t)
sho ain’t bliss (no it isn’t, no it isn’t)

ignorance and arrogance, goin’ hand in hand
condescending judgments of our fellow man
variety’s the spice of life so what good is achieved
by division and derision of the differences we see

the christian community
must cease the negativity
’cause a dose of humility
will spark the cause of unity
accept the reality
that it’s our responsibility
to share our love consistenly
and work to be a family
that’s the way (aw that’s the way)
that’s the way (yeah that’s the way)
that’s the way (uh huh)
we’ll find bliss

prejudicial ignorance isn’t bliss

repeat chorus

now it’s time to get funky…
ministries on trial ’cause they fail to fit a certain style (we’re on trial, different style)
people’s praise snuffed out by tradition, policing music that’s deemed “un-christian” (unjustly condemned)
you can’t judge worship by a dance or groove (music’s groove and)
to him it’s pleasing when the heart’s in tune (heart’s in tune)
it’s a shame all the joy that’s missed (praise is not a sin)
legalistic ignorance sho ain’t bliss (it’s bliss)
sing it out!

repeat chorus

what makes you stop short of makin’ that move
to break the comfort zone you’re accustomed to?
open eyes, realize the truth you can’t dismiss
prejudicial ignorance sho ain’t bliss (sho ain’t bliss)
sho ain’t bliss (sho ain’t bliss)
