Flobots - Rise

rate me

So much pain we

Dont know how to be but angry

Feel infected like weve got gangrene

Please dont let anybody try to change me


Just me

In the middle of a sea full of faces

Full of faces

Some laugh some salivate

Whats in your alleyway

Recycling bins or bullet cases

Its not equal

Its not fair

Were different people

But were not scared

We aint never scared

To pave a new path

Make a new street

Build a new bridge

Say can you see by the dawns early light

Free slaves running

Songs words werent right

Now a new days coming

The few stay stunning while the many are handsome

Your soul is alive but they want it for ransom

The base drumming is the anthem

We step to the heartbeats of our granddaughters and grandsons


Rise together

We rise together

[repeated several times]

Lost hope and found need

Grounded by our surroundings

Did the walls scream universities

Or you and i verse the tees

React automatic and we burst when squeezed

And make 9-11 each emergency

Urgency amber to red like the turning leaves

Oh please let the hurting cease

Don't let apathy police the populace

We will march across

Those stereotypes that were marked for us

The answers obvious

We switch the consonants

Change the sword to words and lift continents

If you believe in redemption

I'm calling to you from another dimension
