Rise


Stand together and rise!
Wipe those salty tears from your weary eyes
As we recover from another untimely demise
For too long, we have lived in a world full of fear
While the presence of death and danger is forever near
With darkness slows approaching from the rear
It is time we take a stand!
Altering the blueprints to the plan
Removing the guns from the unloved hands

Hands that are in need of love and care
And that need to be guided from the path of darkness and nowhere
Given chances entirely unfair
Not locked in chains just to get them out of our hair
Because whether we like it or not, they will always be there

Reach out, and grab hold of the hands so cold
And listen to the story previously untold
And watch and behold!
As the truth is told
A glimpse inside of a tattered soul
Love and care will get us there
A promised land, gleaming in heavenly glare

So rise, and extend a hand!
As we build back our promised land
And watch as the evil falls
As together we stand
