The W.O.R.L.D says you'll save us,
So this call to arms goes to everyone able
To render your thoughts on your own terms,
Stand up and be free.
Exclusive, elitist, negative behaviour
Will result in only systematic failure,
We need to stand up together,
Not fall down apart.

And no but we wont wait, no but we wont wait,
No but we wont wait, no but we wont wait
For you, for you,
You, for you.

It's a crime to ourselves, a bi-product of hatred,
So with all the velocity of a slightly belated
Message to a loved one, comes a sign of hope,
Stand up and see for yourself.
This loyalty's what you gave us,
Now watch any minute as a power could rise up to save us;
If only we'd stand up together,
Not fall down apart.

And no but we wont wait, no but we wont wait,
No but we wont wait, no but we wont wait
For you, for you,
You, for you.

You, for you,
You, for you.

    General CommentWhen I saw Howards Alias live at The Vic in Derby on the 15 of December. Matt introduced the song by saying "This song is for everyone who thinks racists are f****n tos***s" and went straight in2 it. i think it was this one anyway. this is a great album btw. buy it. the answer is never.
