From the album Rise Up! The Compilation
Wow! A provocative Alt/Rock song that really sounds the rally cry around the world; for the oppressed, abducted, and those seeking justice for humanity. Protect the children!
Yea, come on come on; ah that’s just sic right there
Dictators better wise up, as your people start to rise up
Oppression is the lesson dictators want to teach
Arresting you for your freedom of speech, what!
Hurray for technology, in real-time now we see
The beatings, the killings, the poverty and greed
Freedom, Fairness, Justice, Peace
I see it on the news, the people in the streets
Distrust, mistrust, every minute watching us
Upload feed, download need
Handout, bailout, copout, sellout
“Foreclosed your home, now get the hell out”
WMD, reverse escalation; lying in the streets
You can’t break me!
Break: Stop human trafficking, people need to be free
No more wars, let Freedom ring!
Rise Up! Time to take a stand
It’s not too late to stop the hate and help your fellow man
It’s troubling to see the homeless sleeping on the ground
Pushing shopping carts with the bounty that they found
Poverty is hard when you’re sleeping in your car
Life cuts deep, and it leaves real scars
99% is what the people represent
Cuttin’ back, holding on, tryin’ to pay the rent
I see the money flowing but I don’t know where it’s going
Reduce the debt, help the Vets, keep this country growing
Global is the focus, local is the path
Rising costs choke us, the wages they don’t last
Keep the jobs here, pay the people well
Economy will thrive, but only time will tell
When it comes to drama; character and grit
Hard decision made, Seal Team 6
Bringin’ heat and justice, everywhere they go
Let Freedoms force, plot the course and bring our people home
Break: Let’s put shackles on brutality
And handcuffs on corruption
Make Peace the new reality
Let’s all stop world destruction
Rise Up! Freedom and Equality, Rise Up!
Justice for Humanity, Rise Up! We got to be strong!
Rise Up! Protect the Children, Rise Up! No more Wars!
