Chris Webby – Stand Up lyrics

Lately I've been contemplating
Watching humans tear apart this fucking planet
Like they've never heard of moderation
The people running things ain't worried bout no conservation
Unless there's money in the conversation
But what happens when the soil is too toxic for the plants to grow
And all our drinking water is polluted (got the answer bro?)
All I know is humans are the cancer of the planet
Forecast, lots of global warming with a chance of snow

Hoping things will change but I doubt they ever will
Mother nature dying while we yelling drill, baby drill
So in turn the world's heating up, climate change creeping up
Hell, at least those folks at Exxon made a decent buck
Carbon footprints on the world that'll never wash away
While the ones in charge of it ignoring what we got to say
Still we gotta try, all we got is you and I
Put your mother fucking fists in the sky, come and

(Stand up, stand up) if you gonna fight for what you believe
(Stand up, stand up) if you ain't falling for what they teaching
(Stand up, stand up) anytime your back's up against the wall
(Stand up, stand up) take away my freedom
You'll give me the reason to stand up

I don't dabble much in things that are political
But it ain't hard to see
That half these politicians running shit are criminal
They way we written history is strictly fictitiously
Still they try tricking me, telling me that I'm living free
Now keeping quiet while they take away our freedoms
(Hell, they're just the constitutional laws, who fuckin needs em?)
And the mainstream media decides what you'll be seeing
So I'm skeptical of everything, don't know what to believe in

Cause they lying to us right under our noses
And we know it but there's nothing we can do to control it
And it's got me losing sleep
Cause I'm seeing shit different than when I was younger
Watching world hunger while the economy's going under
Too caught up in reality shows and cell phones
They fool for the gmo's and say yo
I've had enough of all these lies, all we got is you and I
Put your fucking fists up in the sky, come and

(Stand up, stand up) if you gonna fight for what you believe
(Stand up, stand up) if you ain't falling for what they teaching
(Stand up, stand up) anytime your back's up against the wall
(Stand up, stand up) take away my freedom
You'll give me the reason to stand up
