lyrics

Why do we care
When they don't care
And regard us with no empathy?

Why should we hide
What lies inside
For fear that they will see?

Stand by your friends
Until the end
Not what the status quo reads

Chorus: Rise up! Stand up! Live for your dreams! (Rise up! Stand up! Rise up!)
The last straw breaks and you are free! (Rise up! Stand up! Rise up!)

The judgmental eyes
Telling us lies
Standing for nothing at all

They break us down
Nail our feet to the ground
Just want to watch us fall
Don't let them say "I told you so"


Let the nay-sayers nay
And fuck what they say
Stand up and be free

Chorus: Rise up! Stand up! Live for your dreams! (Rise up! Stand up! Rise up!)
The last straw breaks and you are free! (Rise up! Stand up! Rise up!)
