How can you stand there, when all around you is a lie?
How can you stand there, and not wonder why
What right to complain when so many much worse off than you
How can you stand there, and just watch them do it?

How can you stand there, come walk with me that extra mile
How can you stand there, and not raise a smile?
You must be paralyzed, so little time, so much to do
And soon you'll realize that it's down to you

'Cos it's not over till you hit the top, it's not over till you have to
Stop
It's not over while we have a chance
No it's not over, so come on and dance now

How can you stand there, how can you stand there
How can you stand there, how can you stand there? Lord!

Warning signs all around this town
Something's up, something's coming down
Made aware by the plagues and quakes
We're wound up tight like it's gonna break now
The drums are thumping, blood is pumping
Hands on the clock getting ready to stop
Tires screaming, engine smoking, look out driver the Earth is choking

And how can you stand there, how can you stand
How can you stand there, how can you stand there?, Lord!

It's not over, no no, it's not over, no no no
No it's not over, hell no, no it's not over
No it's not over till you hit the top, it's not over till you have to stop
It's not over while we have a chance
It's not over, so come on and dance now, and

How can you stand there, how can you stand there
How can you stand there, how can you stand there?
Amandla!
