It's time we stood up for ourselves so get up off your knees. We'll shake off our detractors and attain our hopes and dreams so put aside your differences, sing loud, sing proud We won't listen to their stories or be waylaid by their lies and if we fall prey to in-fighting, we're never gonna win, it's a dram that's still attainable for kids like you and I So if we all stand together singing one defiant song our voice will reach the heavens, so sing with all your heart we shall rise and sing stand up and be counted Chorus: Join us in a song sing it loud, sing it proud sing a song for liberty join us in this song together we shall sing rise up and be counted We've been brutalized and crucified, the brunt of their attacks, If we can realize our common goals, the end of which is plain united and now stronger, is corruption not their trademark and compassion what they lack? their loss is now our gain!
