Ive been tossing in my sleep
Plagued by the things ive seen
I see grown men in the streets begging for food to eat
I see a young mom in the church Shunned because her baby has no father
I see a war on the tv That leaves orphans in the streets
And i think to myself what a world we live in
where people use God's name to expand their empires
They say its just the way it is
That i should just learn to accept it
Well i beg to differ man
I wont give in
You villainous men
With your treacherous hands
Have taken away all the meaning in this
Road you claim to travel
Is in the path of his steps
All the while your the shell of a christian man
So i wont tread lightly
I wont go quietly
I wont speak softly
I wont let you get the best of me
This has to end here
This has to end right now
No longer can we wait for things to all work out
Just open up your eyes
And look past your front door
Your sisters in the streets and your brothers at war
Compassion has been lost in a nation built by greed
But we could be a generation that is truly free
No longer will we answer
To a king who wears a crown
But a king who ruled through peace
Then laid his life down
Rise up
Rise up true sons of zion
I will be the change i want to see in the world
