People Are People - Depeche Mode

People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

So we're different colors and we're different creeds
And different people have different needs
It's obvious you hate me though I've done nothing wrong
I've never even met you so what could I have done

I can't understand what makes a man
Hate another man help me understand

People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

(Help me understand)
(Help me understand)

Now you're punching and you're kicking and you're shouting at me
I'm relying on your common decency
So far it hasn't surfaced but I'm sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel from your head to your fist (head to your fists)

I can't understand what makes a man
Hate another man help me understand

People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people so why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

I can't understand what makes a man
Hate another man help me understand

I can't understand what makes a man
Hate another man help me understand

I can't understand what makes a man
Hate another man I can't understand....
