Rise (Japanese Release)
(Payne/Downes)

Read in the papers
See on the screen
Oppressive behavior
A foreign regime

That don't happen here
That can't happen here

Rise
Legion of hope
Rise
Don't give in
Land of the sun
To where West was won
Rise
To the future

Political stranger
Under attack
Forever in danger
For stating a fact

So don't you speak your mind
You may lose you life

Rise
Legion of hope
Rise
Don't give in
Land of the sun
To where West was won
Rise
To the future
