"Stand For Something" as written by and Daniel Pugsley Arya Goggin....
Caught in chains
Shackles on too tight
Squirming for your life
Because you've gone and lost your freedom

Manacles cut deep when they're too tight
You have to break the lock or find the key so you can defeat dem
Enslaved by the wickedest power
We're smashing up the cells and all the right ones gunna follow
Uprising we need not the chains
And we aren't gunna make the same mistakes again

If you want it you got to rise and take it
You go to wake up you know you can't contain this
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

If you want it you got to fight for it
Wake up you'll never contain it
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

Wolves they creep
Out to take the sheep
The vulnerable, the easy led, the weak
Who will protect dem?

Against the wall now they execute
The blind can't lead the blind,
They always need someone to lead dem

Restrained by the evillest power
Captive of the chains because these things you've done are so'a
Not surprising - it's all done in vain
But you have gone and made the same mistake again

If you want it you got to rise and take it
Got to wake up, you know you can't contain this
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

If you want it you got to fight for it
Wake up you'll never contain it
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

Caught in chains
Shackles on too tight
Squirming for your life
Because you've gone and lost your freedom

Manacles cut deep when they're too tight
You have to break the lock or find the key so you can defeat dem
Enslaved by the wickedest power
Enslaved by the wickedest power
Enslaved by the wickedest power
Enslaved by the wickedest

Everyday you live, you gotta fight
You got to stand your ground
If you want it you got to rise and take it
Got to wake up, you know you can't contain this

Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything
If you want it you got to fight for it
Wake up you'll never contain it
Caught in chains
Shackles on too tight
Squirming for your life
Because you've gone and lost your freedom

Manacles cut deep when they're too tight
You have to break the lock or find the key so you can defeat dem
Enslaved by the wickedest power,
We're smashing up the cells and all the right ones gunna follow
Uprising we need not the chains
And we aren't gunna make the same mistakes again

If you want it you got to rise and take it
You go to wake up you know you can't contain this
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

If you want it you got to fight for it
Wake up you'll never contain it
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

Wolves they creep
Out to take the sheep
The vulnerable, the easy led, the weak,
Who will protect dem?

Against the wall now they execute

Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything
If you want it you got to fight for it
Wake up you'll never contain it

Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

If you don't stand for something,
You'll fall for anything
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything
Stand for something!
Or you'll fall for anything

If you don't stand for something
You'll fall for anything

    My OpinionGood Lord... How come no one has commented anything on such an amazing song!? Everything from guitar, bass, drums and Benji's voice are all great! Lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, so, not much to say on that. Keep up the great music, Skindred!
