I see their lips move but all I hear is shit.
They act so intellectual but they do crimes they don't admit.

We need action in the street,moving with our feet.
It's time to shout out loud.
It's time to start a movement,and there's no time like right now.
It's time to get up get up get up why don't you?
Stand up stand up stand up it's time to get up get up get up why don't you?
Stand up stand up it's time to start a fight.

Monkey see monkey do, but all I see is death.
Electrocute and cut them up,watch them take their last breath.

We need action in the street,moving with our feet.
It's time to shout out loud.
It's time to start a movement and there's no time like right now.
It's time to get up get up get up why don't you?
Stand up stand up stand up it's time to get up get up get up why don't you?
Stand up stand up it's time to start a fight.

I've held my breath so many times when I'm playing for the tortured souls. But your souls they seem to be done for.
Your bodies they have waged wars.
So what gives them the right to take your life from you?
Why do they all play God?
Who said that is your job?

It's time to get up get up get up why don't you?
Stand up stand up stand up it's time to get up get up get up why don't you?
Stand up stand up it's time to start a fight!

I've heard it's a rat race and they race until they're dead.
You pesticides commit homicide slit their throats until they've bled.2x

Now it's time to start a fight.
