Stand up
We shall not be moved
Except by a child with no socks and shoes
If you've got more to give then you've got to prove
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
Stand up
We shall not be moved
Except by a woman dying from a loss of food
If you've got more to give then you've got to prove
Put your hands up and I'll copy you

We still don't understand thunder and lightning
Flash back to when we didn't fund the dam
Didn't fund the damn levee? No wonder man
Now our whole damn city's torn asunder man
Under water but we still don't understand
We see hurricane spills overrun the land
Through gaps you couldn't fill with a hundred tons of sand
No we still don't understand
We've seen planes in the windows of buildings crumbled-in
We've seen flames send the chills through London
And we've sent planes to kill them and some of them were children
But still we crumble-in the building
Underfunded but we still don't understand
Under god but we kill like the son of Sam
But if you feel like I feel like about the son of man
We will overcome

So stand up
We shall not be moved
Except by a child with no socks and shoes
If you've got more to give then you've got to prove
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
Stand up
We shall not be moved
Except by a woman dying from a loss of food
If you've got more to give then you've got to prove
Put your hands up and I'll copy you

I said put your hands up and I'll copy you
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
If you've got more to give then you've got to prove
Put your hands up and I'll copy you

We shall not be moved
Except by a child with no socks and shoes
Except by a woman dying from a loss of food
Except by a freedom fighter bleeding on a cross for you
We shall not be moved
Except by a system that's rotten through
Neglecting the victims and ordering the cops to shoot
High treason now we need to prosecute

So stand up
We shall not be moved
And we wont fight a war for fossil fuel
It's times like this if want to plot a coup
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
Stand up
We shall not be moved
Unless we're taking a route we have not pursued
So if you've got a dream and a lot to do
Put your hands up and I'll copy you

I said put your hands up and I'll copy you
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
If you've got a dream and a lot to do
Put your hands up

Now shake, shake
A polaroid dream
Nightmare negatives develop on the screen
We sit back and wait for the government team
Criticize they but who the fuck are we
The people want peace but the leaders want war
Our neighbors don't speak, peek through the front door
House representatives preach "stay the course"
Time for a leap of faith
Once more

Put your hands up high if you haven't imagined
Hope that the pen strokes stronger than the cannon
Balls to the wall, nose to the grindstone
My interrogation techniques leave your mind blown
So place your bets let's speak to the enemy
Don't let 'em pretend that we seek blood
And who's we anyways Kemo Sabe?
Mighty warlord wanna-be street thug
A threat for a threat leaves the whole world terrified
Blow for blow never settles the score
Word for word it's time we clarify
We the people did not want war

So stand up
We shall not be moved
Except by a child with no socks and shoes
If you've got more to give then you've got to prove
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
Stand up
We shall not be moved
Unless we're taking a route we have not pursued
So if you've got a dream and a lot to do
Put your hands up and I'll copy you

I said put your hands up and I'll copy you
Put your hands up and I'll copy you
If you've got a dream and a lot to do
Put your hands up
