Depeche Mode People Are People Lyrics

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

So we’re different colours
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

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

I can’t understand what makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

I can’t understand (people are people)
What makes a man (why should it be)
Hate another man
Help me understand …
