Are We Going To Rise?

There ’re some things in this world that won’t ever change.
The ink that drips through on to every page
As borders flood, and rearrange.
But are we going to rise?

There is writing on the wall I want to punctuate.
Planes don’t fly they tend to levitate.
And the pills won’t decide what they alleviate.
But are we going to rise?

Are we going to rise?
Are we going to rise?
We can stand there together and throw our thoughts there forever on the rise.

Well the mystery shoppers think that they figured out
Who the secret Santa was and what he’s all about.
But the jury called, they said they got their doubts,
And you can see it in their eyes.

There’s redemption in the streets with all the alibis.
When freedom don’t ring we’re free to criticize.
Then entitlement grows and accountability dies.
But are we going to rise?


I can’t sing another word until it’s written out.
But to sing another word I’ll have to learn to shout.
Truth be told, all I should care about is…
Am I going to rise?
