Martin Gore penned lyrics that convey a message that people shouldn't judge one another. The lyrics question and condemn unfound hate. The song asks that humans put an end to superficial differences and unjustified violence or prejudice. Gore touches upon racial discrimination, homophobia, and religious intolerance in simple, easy to understand words.
I have many friends who, by only being who they are, take the brunt of other people's intolerance on a daily basis. It is time to end the hatred and learn to accept someone for who they are. Remember, people are people, and should be treated as such, no matter what.
