LYRICS

 

Appears on:

Time To Rise

Everyone has an opinion
We all see the world through our tinted lenses
And no one’s immune to the system
So learn to respect, don’t reject
That’s how we rise - it’s time to rise

And how can we say we’re evolving
When so many still face a world of hatred
It’s a problem we all should be solving
Human is human is human...
It’s time to rise

You’re arrogant, you’re not innocent
You’re not holier-than-thou
And your ignorance and your apathy
Both have to end right now

Don’t raise your voice trying to argue about
Which ideology we should all follow
If you disagree, do it with decency
And your voice will never ring hollow
That’s how we rise - it’s time to rise

Don’t waste your time trying to figure out
If you should run or stand and battle
You should know that it’s much too late
If you can already hear the snake rattle
It’s time to rise

You’re arrogant, you’re not innocent
You’re not holier-than-thou
And your ignorance and your apathy
Both have to end right now

There’s so much I still don’t understand
I’m so ashamed of what’s allowed to happen
If we want to live in a civilized land
Then we can’t just sit still we have to stand up now and rise

We’re arrogant, we’re not innocent
We’re not holier-than-thou
And our ignorance and our apathy
Both have to end right now - it’s time to rise
