I Stand Up

I look back at all the years gone by

I can’t believe I’ve wasted this time

I watch the children grow old

All the memories fade

I point the finger right back at myself

I stand up

To aggression and hate

How alone does it feel to be at the top?

To the mongers of fear and the end of all days

I represent the hope and the will to survive

I stand up

I’m not going to stop

Until I see you through

Rid the world of this wrath

I stand up

For all those deceived

By the headlines meant to keep the people at rest

The hand shaker by day

The ego by night

Your benevolence is best left at the costume ball

I stand up!

It don’t take much to think this all through

To spread the word when the word is the truth

You think you’re in control

A savior to the world

But it’s so much bigger than you can believe

I stand up

I’m not going to stop

Until I see you through

Rid the world of this wrath

To the mongers of fear and the end of all days

I represent the hope and the will to survive

For the transparent lie a token of proof

Paid at the door into the abyss of neglect

I stand up

I’m not going to stop

Until I see you through

Rid the world of this wrath

Let me know what you think
