When days are going crazy
The world can make you lazy
You’re caught up in a haze that won’t let you go
The borders in your mind bring problems and you find
It’s hard when you’re in a bind to live what you know

Words are empty
And they don’t mean
That your duty’s anywhere but your hands
Every ocean
Needs some motion
You gotta get on up and do what you can

No words – Can take the place of action
No talk – can change the truth so
Stand Up – It’s not enough to say it
Your faith is measured by the things that you do

There’s more to every season
Than logic, rhyme and reason
People won’t always know the plans in your head
If you ain’t always reachin’
To practice what you’re preachin’
What good is anything that you may have said

Faith is empty
When you don’t see
That your creed is not just some words you pray
What’s compassion
If it’s just fashion
What good’s the map if you don’t follow the way

No words – Can take the place of action
No talk – can change the truth so
Stand Up – It’s not enough to say it
Your faith is measured by the things that you do

Run where the road will go
Live what you think you know
Love is a gift you share
Working will be your prayer

Action’s the price you pay
For the gift of each day
I don’t care what you say
It’s what you do

Now’s the time to leap
Though it’s not easy
And miracles can’t sleep
In your head
But how would someone act, if you really
If you believe a man can rise from the dead

No words – Can take the place of action
No talk – can change the truth so
Stand Up – It’s not enough to say it
Your faith is measured by the things that you do

No words – Can take the place of action
No talk – can change the truth so
Stand Up – It’s not enough to say it
Your faith is measured by the things that you do

Run where the road will go
Live what you think you know
Love is a gift you share
Working will be your prayer

Action’s the price you pay
For the gift of each day
I don’t care what you say
It’s what you do
