Song#: 15

Album
Name of Song: Rise Oh Human Rise

So lonely being right,
It shakes the status quo,
Many “now I’m suppose to’s”
make it easy to say NO. 

The world will go on suffering,
Authority caught inside,
Their “nothing to do with me club”
So dutifully abide. 

Their arrogance  so obvious,
And people just ignore,
The underlying problem being
We’ve all become too bored. 


Chorus
Rise oh human rise,
Your Constitution reigns,
Forget your “now I’m suppose to’s,
Remember from whence you came. 
Rise oh human rise,
Your Constitution reigns,
Forget your “now I’m suppose to’s,
Remember from whence you came.

Make your mark in this life,
Inspire your family too,
Let them know it’s time to rise,
It’s time for them to choose.

So what are you going to do now, 
What do you feel within,
The future of our human race
demands you now begin.

Take your time to choose now,
Rise up or stay the same,
Those “now I’m suppose to’s” run our lives,
They stop our urge to change.
