(Resist) (Resist)

Striking back for the last
heart attack
First you tip the scale
then they tip it back
This escalating trend
will never end
if they take from you
then you take from them

(Resist) (Resist)

With less concern
for what is fair
To an unconsidered
blame you bear
This escalating trend
will never end,
if they take from you...
you take from them again

(Resist) (Resist)

Waking up from a dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe if you never see
that the truth is split on the in-between
Waking up from your dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe because the truth is this:
what hatred breeds you must resist

(Resist) (Resist)

Who was the first
and who was the last?
Did you count yourself
or omit the past?
This basic concept
begins again
when your actions flow
from the hate within

(Resist) (Resist)

Waking up from a dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe if you never see
that the truth is split on the in-between
Waking up from your dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe because the truth is this:
what hatred breeds you must resist

(Martin Luther King) "I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed.
We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal."

I don't understand why do you try
to make (Resist) hatred and intolerance seem justified
I don't understand your prejudice and lies
tear (Resist) down your ignorance open your eyes

If the heart is rich
then what you think you are
in your core beliefs
should not become a sword
This basic concept
is where it ends...
if you close your heart
then you begin again

I don't understand why do you try
to make (Resist) hatred and intolerance seem justified
I don't understand your prejudice and lies
tear (Resist) down your ignorance open your eyes

Waking up from a dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe if you never see
that the truth is split on the in-between
Waking up from your dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe because the truth is this:
what hatred breeds you must resist

Waking up from a dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe if you never see
that the truth is split on the in-between
Waking up from your dream into another day
never taking to heart all of the words they say
It so hard to believe because the truth is this:
what hatred breeds you must resist
