lyrics

The time has come to face the music
Fearlessly we stand up to the powers that be
Do you really want a world with no justice?
It's troubling that bribery runs through rampantly

Do your loyalties lie in treasure?
Or bonds bound to break, until we bail them out?
We know how to make the world better
Powered by the people, it's time to wisen up right now

Rise up, wise up
Whose side are you on?
Come embrace the movement
We've been bought for far too long
Rise up, wise up
There's something going wrong
When we put our faith and dollars in bombs

So rise up and fight
Momentum is on our side

Rise up, you need to wise up
You need to look around and make your mind up
If inaction is a fraction of mentality
Then we're broke inside a buyable society

We can all feel the power
If we raise our hands
We fight for the common man
See beyond the less of two evils
We can take a stand

Do your loyalties lie in treasure?
Or bonds bound to break, until we bail them out?
We know how to make the world better
Powered by the people, it's time to wisen up right now

Rise up, wise up
Whose side are you on?
Come embrace the movement against corruption
Rise up, wise up
There's something going wrong
When we put our faith and dollars in bombs

So rise up
This is a revolution
(So rise up and fight)
(Momentum is on our side)
