"Stand Up" as written by and Manfredini/grant....
We gotta stand up - for what we believe in
We got no time - We haven't got a moment
Oh yeah there's - gotta be something
A new revolution - A final solution

Oh a rich man in the white house
All gonna rise up to let you hear our voice
Bullied and paid your way there is no doubt
Who are they to take away a woman's choice
We've been livin so long under oppression all afflicted by their sick economic games,
Power, policy, and religion money talks leaders listen
All over the world the story's the same

We gotta stand up - for what we believe in
We got no time - We haven't got a moment
Oh yeah there's - gotta be something
A new revolution - A final solution

Oh gotta change the world for our children
It'll be them who inherit all of our mistakes
So can you please listen to what I'm sayin
gotta change our self-destructive ignorant ways
because our state of mind needs to be corrected
So let's teach our kinds never to hate
And its their future we're protectin
So black and white I'm beggin - Can we all get along together someday

We gotta stand up - for what we believe in
We got no time - We haven't got a moment
Oh yeah there's - gotta be something
A new revolution - A final solution

We gotta stand up - for what we believe in
We got no time - We haven't got a moment
Oh yeah there's - gotta be something
A new revolution - A final solution

We gotta stand up - for what we believe in
We got no time - We haven't got a moment
Oh yeah there's - gotta be something
A new revolution - A final solution

We gotta stand up - for what we believe in

    General CommentThis song has one major flaw and that is the fact that they call for a 'final solution.' The connotations behind those two words put together are anything but revolutionary. The songwriter should have taken a history class before he penned this song.
