"This Is the Time" as written by Mark Hockings and Richard James Silverthorn....
They build us up
To throw us down
We have an opinion
But that isn’t allowed
We build it tall
And watch it fall
We work in a factory but make nothing at all

But it’s hard, to resist
That there’s more, so much more to be missed
And it’s hard, to believe
That we’ve been so completely deceived

This is the time
To make a stand
To face our fear
To understand
This is the time
To change our plans
To hold our nerve
To stand our ground

We work so hard
We do things right
We love all our children
But that isn’t a right
We stay in touch
We talk too much
We live in our dreams
But they’re nothing but dust

But it’s time to concede
That I need more than this to be free
And it’s hard, to believe
That we’ve been so completely deceived

This is the time
To make a stand
To face our fear
To understand
This is the time
To change our plans
To hold our nerve
To stand our ground

And they don’t want the things we do
We knew it once and it’s still true
And it’s our right to pick and choose
They beat us once, but we don’t lose

I’m sick of this pain it won’t go away
I’m sick of this guilt for all that I’ve built
I hate this crowd, for making me proud
I hate this town for pulling me down

This is the time
To make a stand
To face our fear
To understand
This is the time
To change our plans
To hold our nerve
To stand our ground

And they don’t want the things we do
We knew it once and it’s still true
And it’s our right to pick and choose
They beat us once, but we don’t lose
