Rise up


Rise Up!


Rise up, rise up, rise up with the machine-heads,
Rise up, rise up, rise up before you’re dead.
Rise up, rise up, rise up with the machine-heads,
Rise up, rise up, rise up before you’re dead.


Rise up and let me feel you,
Rise up and let me hear you,
Rise up and let me see you, lose control


Rise up against your peers, armed to the teeth with guns;
Rise up against your teachers,
Who never stopped you getting bullied.
Rise up against your Father, or the Motherland;
Become your own person and become a new man.


Rise up because I said to, or rise up to rebel;
Rise up before death comes, to take us all to Hell.
Rise up and let me see you lose control;
Rise up, rise up, rise up against the world.


Rise up, rise up, the time has come;
To rise against the machines and take back our world.
To rise up against oppression and all negative creeps;
To rise up, to rise up, to rise up and be free.


Rise up and let me feel you,
Rise up and let me hear you;
Rise up and let me see you lose control


Rise up and let me feel you,
Rise up and let me hear you,
Rise up and let me see you touch the sky.
Rise up with me my children as we kiss this world goodbye.

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
