"Rise" as written by and Ollie Dagois Louisa Bobb....
Did you ever question any of the things they tought while you were at school...
And did you ever question Oh my teacher, why do you take me for a fool?
Rise up you got to rise, wake up and rise.
When you're all alone, you'll search for love but they'll have none,
this is the seed that they have sown.
Don't be afraid,
a better place has yet to come.
And when they won't teach or reach or feed and all they do is leave you deceive you.
Be true to yourself and save your mind.
Lesson for the young,
so now let's fly away into the light of a brand new sun,
the time has come.
Rise up you gotta rise up,
wake up and rise.
We'll meditate, communicate, escalate.
Don't be late, we just can't wait to liberate this human race. Go! Rise up you gotta rise up, wake up and rise. Don't let them take away your culture, don't let them take away your future rise up, you got to rise.
