(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 retarded 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) [[Category:Acapella_Vocal_Band]]
