Rise up
You got your destiny to fulfill
And you welcome which what you will
So no more sitting on the fence
Living your life in false pretense
Yeah
Rise and shine
Give the most of the Glory
Rise and shine
Let the world know your story
Rise up, Rebel
Rise up, Wake up
Rise up, Wake up, Get up and seize the time
You're wallowing in mediocrity
Living your life in poverty
We know the system is a fraud
That's why they make your life so hard
Rise and shine
Give the most of the Glory
Rise and shine
Let the world know your story
Rise up, Rebel

Rise up, Wake up
Rise up, Get up, Stand up and seize the time
You've got your life to complete
And there will be no retreat
So for what on to progression
Getting complete satisfaction
Yeah
Rise and shine
Give the most of the Glory
Rise and shine
Let the world know your story
Rise up, Rebel
Rise up, Wake up
Rise up, Wake up, Stand up and seize the time
Rise up (oh my brother)
Wake up (oh my sister)
Rebel
Living your life in poverty won't make you feel that happy
Living your life in false pretense, it just don't make no sense
Rise up (oh mama)
Wake up (oh papa)
Rebel
Rise up and seize the time
