VERSE 1
We all stand up for something
We all stand up for one thing
Whatever that one thing maybe
You and me?
We all stand up together
Get knocked down - come back stronger
Our dreams are our dreams to keep - Believers

CHORUS
We all stand up and we all fall down - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
hands thrown up but your feet still bound - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
Hearts ring out!!!
You won't stop me screaming out - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops

VERSE 2
They'll try and take our crown
Won't let them bring us down
No never not while i can breathe
Can't you see
I say we make a difference
God knows we've been persistant
Our dreams are our dreams to reach - Believers

CHORUS
We all stand up and we all fall down - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
hands thrown up but your feet still bound - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
Hearts ring out!
You won't stop me screaming out - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops

SOLO

MID 8
Something tells me all's not well there's a riot on the rooftops
Lift us from this living hell there's a riot on the rooftops

CHORUS OUT

We all stand up - We all fall down - We all stand up and we all fall down
We all stand up - We all fall down - We all stand up and we all fall down
Hearts ring out
You won't stop me screaming out - There's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
We all stand up and we all fall down - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
Hands thrown up but your feet still bound - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops
Hearts ring out
You won't stop me screaming out - there's a riot - there's a riot on the rooftops

    General Comment It means nothing. They ripped off the whole flow, melody, singing style, and lyrics from Rooftops by Lost Prophets, who they used to list as one of their influences. They are completely unoriginal. Not to mention that their new guitarist, Tom, is a total sexist, racist tool, who attacks fans.
