Some thought they knew the man who was killed when they knew him not, side by side.
Politeness started out well then punkiness ended it all, side by side.
Some went for peace while others went for violence, side by side.
What’s the solution? Is there a solution?
Politicians think that they know while pundits say they don’t, side by side.

People out west say that Hollywood matters while Wall Street says Dow Jones does, side by side.
What truly matters is what Jesus said, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3:16-17)
God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, side by side, into the world that He might save us.
Now we can be saved and walk side by side with Him.
