Oh yeah
Wake up, set your sights
For never shall we fail
Stand up for your rights
And justice will prevail
You're listening through endless nights
And decision is your goal
So wake up, set your sights
For the time is right for your role
Yeah for your role, yeah, yeah

Wake up, wake up, wake up
Set your sights
Never, never, never
Shall we fail
Stand up, stand up, stand up
For your rights
Justice, justice, justice
Will prevail

There in the morning flying over the hills
While many are yawning they are crushed by our wills
Never have I witnessed people in fear
Not like today, not in many a year
Go kill another, there are more close behind
"No" screams a mother, "are you of your mind?"
Though they are shattered they just don't seem to yield
Bodies are scattered in all part of the field
Oh no, did I tell you what would happen if you tried
"Oh God stop this killing," said a young man
Before he died

Wake up, set your sights
For never shall we fail
Stand up for your rights
And justice will prevail
