I watched as everyone sat back
And did nothing at all
Waiting for the right moments to come
Always assuming it would be someone else
Who would give them back their freedom
Being too far pulled down in their slavery
And they are never too brave to see
To glance at all the things chasing me
And see the mistakes they gave to me

You all have to stand up as on and stand undivided
And try hard not to hide it
No other person can bring you down
If you all stand united

Just stand up for yourself
Take it as your only chance to stand for hope
(You'll find your not out of time)
Don't hold back anymore
This is something you can't ignore
Stand even when your standing alone

Someday you'll lend the hand you used to give
And stand strong like you once did
To grasp the life you wanted to live
I know how it was back then
You always concentrate
And never hesitate
At the situation at stake
And now its become honest
That you don't care anymore / and now I'm
Trying to help you repair your promise

You all have to stand up as on and stand undivided
And try hard not to hide it
No other person can bring you down
If you all stand united

You all have to stand up as on and stand undivided
And try hard not to hide it
No other person can bring you down
If you all stand united

Just stand up for yourself
Take it as your only chance to stand for hope
(You'll find your not out of time)
Don't hold back anymore
This is something you can't ignore
Stand even when your standing alone

Listen and believe in whatever you think
For yourself
8x

Just stand up for yourself
Take it as your only chance to stand for hope
(You'll find your not out of time)
Don't hold back anymore
This is something you can't ignore
Stand even when your standing alone

Remove
A shadow in my mind

You all have to stand up as on and stand undivided
And try hard not to hide it
No other person can bring you down
If you all stand united

You all have to stand up as on and stand undivided
And try hard not to hide it
No other person can bring you down
If you all stand united

    General CommentForbidden Theory is a 6-piece Nu-Metal underground band from Washington DC. Their underground debut "Hidden Truth" dropped over the summer and this song featured on it. I follow a lot of underground artists and these guys were some of the new artists that caught my eye

    General CommentYes this is a good band at first when i saw them live i thought they were like Linkin Park in many ways with the rapping, sampling, and keyboard loops. But when I got the album which I saw sitting in stores and remembered who they were and bought it. When listening to it, I was taken into complete awe as the music and lyrics where great and the sound was far different from Linkin Park. This song is a favorite of mine from the album with one of the best choruses i've ever heard and I can relate to the some of lyrics as well.
