"Rise" as written by Michael Colton Dixon and Kevin M. Griffin....
Friends, foes and firewood are gathering in the tenaments tonight
While the fast one amongst them brings home food for those too slow
For too many years they have lived on these streets
And their freedom just a memory as the darkness repeats
But somehow everything is turning upside down

And they've been sleeping in the subway
The only place they call their own

And eventually they rise, yes they rise
And they rise in their own way (Repeat)

Their daughter ran away today
Didn't have a lot to say
They wondered why
She comes in twice a week to wash her clothes and watch her mother cry
There's too many eyes watching her fmaily home
Now the seeds of revolution inside her are sown
And somehow everything is turning upside down


Her only daughter left her many years ago
And still she don't know why
She said "Don't you worry mother, you will never see me cry"

Yes they rise in their own way(Repeat)
And they rise in their own way(Repeat)
