"RISE UP" LYRICS:
"I regard myself as a soldier...a soldier of peace." - Ghandi
Rise Up "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. They are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty...the pursuit of happiness." - The Declaration of Independence
Lookin' at millions under a circus tent Watchin' a jackass chase a dumb pachyderm Oh what a show! Tappin' on any shoulder that I can find Of anyone on there who might change their mind It's time to go. To the real world outside with those pirate ships The drunken sailors with dirty lips That rule the night Shoutin' don't be afraid of those wicked men There's more of us than there are of them Come join the fight!
Rise up and be counted Take your part in the solution Linking arm in arm, to arms, to arms Lower your guns and raise your voices Join the peaceful revolution Shout I'm mad as hell and I will ring the bell of freedom
Ride with me from Boston to Phili to LA With reason come marching With knowledge come drumming Let everyone hear you Each soul that is near you The British are coming! the British are coming!
We built a house of sticks a hall of parlor tricks But we blame it all on our politics Oh what a shame! Truth is the cancer ain't just in the head Half the body's nearly dead We're all to blame Time to pledge no more standing on one thin leg Lack of principle's a powder-keg And we can't wait If we just say what we mean mean what we say Take back the power we gave away It's not too late - Grab your tea and follow me
Rise up and be counted Take your part in the solution Linking arm in arm with words as arms Lower your guns and raise your voices Join the peaceful revolution Have you an ear to hear, an eye that sees us We come in the Spirit of Martin, of Ghandi, of Jesus Holding fast to the words with the power that frees us Rise up. Make your choices Choose the peaceful revolution Sell what you have to sell so the devil can tell Then let them raise their hell And we will ring the bell of freedom The bell of freedom The bell of freedom
Special shout out to KRISTA BRANCH. I AM AMERICA and REMEMBER WHO WE ARE, great songs!
