Sound The Alarm
When The Enemy Comes In Like A Flood
The Spirit Of The Lord Will Raise Up A Standard Against Him
I See The Enemy Coming In Like A Flood
In Our Houses, In Our Churches, In Our Families
But What I Don't See Is The Standard
People Of God Where Is The Standard At?
We In A War Ya'll
It's Time To Stand Out!

Verse 1:
It's About To Go Down
The Battle Has Begun
It's Time For You To Choose
Whose Side Your Gonna Be On
The Devil Is Recruiting
Tempting Every Man
But He's Already Defeated
All We Have To Do Is Stand
No Time For Mixing Light With The Darkness
Be Black Or Be White
No More Shades Of Gray
Be Seperate, Be Holy
No Matter What You Do
Don't Bow
And EVen If You Stand Alone
Stand Anyhow

[Chorus:]

(Tye) Rise up!

(G.A.)
Rise up people, put on your strength.
There's a war going on and we will win.
Stand up and fight, let the kingdom prevail.
With power and might, we will stand out.

Stand out!
(G.A.)Stand out!
Be not conformed to this world.
(G.A.)Stand out!
Be transformed, renew your mind.
(G.A.)Stand out!
Just like the three Hebrew boys,
(G.A.)Stand out!

(G.A.)
God is playin' it cool,
Don't wanna rub nobody the wrong way.
Almost like we're trying to fit in.
Acting like we don't know the name.
It's time for us to stand out and go against the grain.
Forget tryin to be down,
Let the world know you've been changed.
How you gonna be the praise leader?
But you listen to R & B?
And hip-hop is on your ringtone.
I'm trynna tell you God ain't pleased.
And since when did it become cool for you to live together unmarried?
Men with men?
Women with women?
I'm tellin you God ain't gonna have it.

[CHORUS]

(Tye)
It's time to recognize.
The war it's in disguise.
No time for compromise.
Wake up open your eyes.
(Together) The Devil Is A LIE!
You Must Be Hot Or Cold.
You Can't Blend In The Crowd.
It's Time For God's People Ta -

[CHORUS]

(Tye)
Let me hear your war cry!

(G.A.)
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!

(Tye)
Let me hear your war cry!

(G.A.)
Ooh! (Let's Stand Out! ) Ooh! (Let's Stand Out! ) Ooh!

(Tye)
Little bit louder.
(G.A.)
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!

(Tye)
One more time!

(G.A.)
Ooh! (Cry out loud! ) Ooh! (Stand out! ) Ooh!

STAND OUT!

(Tye Tribbett Speaking)
We in a war people of God.
You don't have to fight,
All You Gotta Do Is Stand.
Make Some Noise G.A.!
Having Done All To Stand...
Now Stand People Of God!
If You Gonna Stand Out With Us... SCREAM!

    That there is a war going on between god and satan snd that we need to stay with god and stand up for god. That there is a war that is depending on us. We have the choice to choose god or satan. And that even though satan is recruiting people on his team that we all need to stand up and not fight with him but to stand up root for him and fight with him spiritually by trusting in him and praising him and not surrendering to ungodly things. And to try and recruit people for god. The devil shall shurely lose! He shall not win! We shall come out victoriously! Let's here your battle cry christians everywhere! Don't be shy scream!!!

    To be different from the world even though we live in and with the world. The bible says be ye separated. We as a godly people should stand out and cry war on the devil and his imps against the destruction of our young people.

    Stand out for god. Even if you're all alone and if you're the only one in the room. Don't try to mix in or be popular. Stand out!!

    I don't know what he intended but to me the lyrics are addressing the hyprocrisy of some saints. Alot of people talk the talk but you does not walk the walk. In the above post i stated that it is letting your life speak for you. It's just some things you can not do when you represent christ. Posted by sis sheffield
