From the recording Listen (Rise Up, Stand Up)

Lyrics

LISTEN (Rise Up, Stand Up) - 6/11/20
By Lori Jacobs & Anne Hoffman

Generations of progress from some very troubled times
A block away the pressure grew

While we went about our lives
Injustice has a color, awake and become one
This is a cause worth fighting for, this pledge was meant for all

CHORUS:
Listen with minds wide open (can't be no turning back)
Standing here beside you (1+2nd - our only weapon love) (3rd time – peace will rise above)
Rise up, stand up, Speak up for what is right
Lift our blinds and see the light

Staring at the camera with his life below your knee
Do you really think we're so far gone that we forgot humanity?
Our strength is 'we the people' and delivering dissent
To right this ship and change the tune of disturbing rhetoric

Chaos stomps on hope, don't be fed what they perceive
Change the view, tune people in and imagine what they see
The Golden Rule from faith remains our guiding light
A future shared together how can this not be right?

BRIDGE
Rise up! Stand up! Speak up!
Rise up! Stand up! Speak up!

The Golden Rule from faith remains our guiding light
A future shared together, how can this not be right?

Lift the blinds and see the ...
Open your mind and see the...
Open your heart you'll feel the light
