Lyrics

STAND UP
Freebo, Bassline Music (BMI)
Tom Prasada-Rao, Simple Gift Music (BMI)

VERSE 1:
Violence,
Blow ‘em all away.
Long distance,
Make sure it’s far away.
Hatred,
Anything you say.
You create your enemy.
Suspicion,
What’s that up your sleeve?
Tell me,
Just what do you believe?
Information,
Is just what you receive,
Your responsibility.

BRIDGE:
Everybody, it’s a brand new day.
Ain’t you tired of the same old way?
Pay ‘em back, and soon you’ll find,
An eye for an eye
Makes the whole world blind

CHORUS:
Stand up, be strong.
Why take it, how long?
Stand up, be counted.
Let your voice be sounded.
Stand up, don’t you be afraid.
How long, how long, how long,
How long?

VERSE 2:
Anger,
Escalation blues,
Ground zero,
Anywhere you choose.
Spin it,
Get it on the news.
You’ll know what they want you to know.
Big Brother,
Sleeping in your bed,

Big trouble,
Right upside your head.
Big money,
Steal away your bread,
Take it right beneath your nose.

BRIDGE:
Everybody, it’s a brand new day.
Ain’t you tired of the same old way?
Pay ‘em back, and soon you’ll find,
An eye for an eye
Makes the whole world blind

CHORUS:
Stand up, be strong.
Why take it, how long?
Stand up, be counted.
Let your voice be sounded.
Stand up, don’t you be afraid.
How long, how long, how long,
How long?

VERSE 3:
Old Glory,
Careful where you trod.
Old story,
Ain’t nothin’ but a fraud.
One nation,
Divided under God,
Is he always on your side?

BRIDGE:
Everybody, it’s a brand new day.
Ain’t you tired of the same old way?
Pay ‘em back, and soon you’ll find,
An eye for an eye
Makes the whole world blind

CHORUS:
Stand up, be strong.
Why take it, how long?
Stand up, be counted.
Let your voice be sounded.
Stand up, don’t you be afraid.
How long, how long, how long,
How long?
