5 Years, It doesn't seem like so long
And now we're fighting a war without the bullets or the guns
Some politicans have led us to belive
That we're prisoners inside of our own country
I for one don't belive them when they say
That the protest songs lie silent in their grave
So stand up, stand up, no they'll never make the grade
And we won't play their games, the revolutions on its way

Rise up, all you people the battle isn't over,
Are you ready, you ready
So long, we've spent our lives living on the sidelines,
Are you ready, get ready to
Break away, no they're not binding me
So get ready, get ready.
Now the gloves off, we'll come out fighting

15 seats doesn't mean they've got us beat
Step up to the mark its our responsability
So many people will suffer at their hands
Gotta make a plan why can't we understand
There's no doubt in my mind it's a sign of the times
Don't need the agrovation of social divide
So stand up, stand up, no they'll never make the grade
And we won't play their games, the revolutions on its way

Rise up, all you people the battle isn't over,
Are you ready, you ready
So long, we've spent our lives living on the sidelines,
Are you ready, get ready to
Break away, no they're not binding me
So get ready, get ready.
Now the gloves off, we'll come out fighting

They take, take, take. They take away from me, now i'm trapped in this cell, i'm a slave to apathy.

You know they break, break, break the hearts of you and me, the misguided souls, a consiquence of this disease

Rise up, all you people the battle isn't over,
Are you ready, you ready
So long, we've spent our lives living on the sidelines,
Are you ready, get ready to
Break away, no they're not binding me
So get ready, get ready.
Now the gloves off, we'll come out fighting
