    Lyrics (Copyright Erika Kulnys 2016)
    Rise Up

    Where were you when the mountains quaked
    When the waters rose
    Were you awake?

    And where were you when the mother cried
    Giving up her child
    To the Holy State?

    And where were you
    When we marched in the streets?
    Where were you




    Were you keeping the peace?




    Where were you
    When we took the waters back?
    Where were you




    Did you have your mother’s back?

    Rise up
    Now is the hour
    Rise up
    Take back your power
    Rise up
    We will not wait
    We rise up today

    Where were you
    When the soldiers died
    Fighting for the truth
    Were you alive?

    Where were you
    When the towers blew
    When the temples burned
    Were you inside?

    And where are you
    When we march in the streets?
    Where are you
    Will you be the peace?

    Where are you
    When we take the borders back
    Where are you
    Will you have your brother’s back?


    Now we must rise up
    Now is the hour
    Rise up
    Take back your power
    Rise up
    We will not wait
    We rise up today

    Rise up
    Now is the hour
    Rise up
    Take back our Power
    Rise up
    We will not wait
    We rise up today
    We Rise Up Today Show less
