Rise Up

1httkx7yK92hqa3D5s6HtR

Things took a turn 'bout an hour ago
We lost another freedom don't you know
Is this what you meant - ignore evidence
Now we watch truth lay down to arrogance

No one will admit our elected leadership
Went an’ made everything such a mess
Has the land of the free
Forgot the home of the brave
And become scared to

Rise Up
Rise Up defend your rights
Rise Up
Rise Up and win this fight

Take a look around what do you see
A snipe hunt being led by Wall Street Freaks
We know what you heard - all of the applause
That circus came to sell off all our laws

Rise Up
Rise Up defend your rights
Rise Up
Rise Up and win this fight

Deregulation bad legislation
Corporations shouldn't be diplomatic engines
Lightning rods for maneuvering fraud
Paint their path to heaven then act like godss
Moral turpitude conflicting attitudes
Clandestine video shows us who is lewd (rude)
Our education ain’t evil invention
Its a key to learning a needed lesson

Rise Up
Rise Up defend your rights
Rise Up
Rise Up and win this fight
Rise Up
Rise Up defend your rights
Rise Up
Rise Up and win this fight
