Songtext:

Find yourself in the gutter in a lonely part of town
It waits in the darkness with a weapon to cut somebody down
Sleeping with an empty bottle is a sad and empty-hearted man
He needs a job with a little respect so he could get out while he can

Oh we always need to hear both sides of the story
We always need to hear both sides of the story
Both sides of the story

Neighborhood peace is shattered, it's the middle of the night
Young faces hide in the shadows
While they watch their mother and father fight
He says she's been unfaithful. She says her love for him is gone
And the brother shrugs to his sister and says
"Looks like it's just us from now on"

Oh we always need to hear both sides of the story
We need to hear both sides of the story...both sides of the story

The lights are all on, the world is watching now
People looking for truth
We must have faith now
Be sure, before we close our eyes
Walk away from here...'til you hear both sides...no no no no

Here we are all gathered in what seems
to be the center of the storm
Neighbors once friendly now stand inside
of the line that has been drawn
They've been fighting here for years
But now there's killing on the street
While small coffins are lined up sadly, now united in defeat

Oh we always need to hear both sides of the story
The lights are all on, the world is watching now
People looking for truth
we must have faith now
Be sure, before we close our eyes
Walk away from here...'til you see both sides...oh no no no

White man turns the corner, finds himself within a different world
Ghetto kid grabs his shoulder, throws him up against the wall
He says "would you respect me, if I didn't have this gun?
'Cause without it, I don't get it, and that's why I carry one"
Oh we always need to hear both sides
of the story..both sides of the story

Oh both sides of the story.....
yes, both sides of the story
Oh both sides of the story.....
both sides of the story
Both sides of the story.....
Both sides both sides of the story....
Both sides of the story.....
Both sides both sides of the story yeah....
Both sides of the story.....
Both sides both sides of the story....
Both sides of the story.....
Must hear both sides of the story...
