Rise up lift ya eyes up
get up stand up throw ya hands up and..
sick of all the lies sick of the compromise
sick of the way we live our lives and run and hide
sick of the times we turn our head close our eyes
can you hear the cries when you gonna rise?
stand up! my people in the place where you at?
stand up! Godís people who aint ashamed where you at?
stand up! if you say you know his name where you at?
stand up! cause you gotta proclaim what you have
rise up! no more hiding no time for crying
you canít be the light of the world when you aint shining
Iím straight rhyming so youíll be straight recognizing
you aint trying you just sitting there straight whining
while the whole world around you just straight dying
so keep in mind Jesus Lion of Zion
gave his life so you and I wouldnít be frying
so quit hiding itís time for you to start rising
Rise up lift your eyes up
get up stand up throw your hands up and
To all my real live people in the spot now
rise up let me see what you got now
we blowing holes in ya speakers when we rock now
we keep it hot now every time we rock towns
thatís how we got down every time we drop sounds
so you know you better listen when I talk now
cause we never stop now or let ya guard down
cause if you got the answer why keep it locked down?
How many people want to see this rock now
go bump it in your trunk rolling with the top down
hold on cause I'm letting the missile drop now
no hostages cause we're taking your whole block down
yo we hot but not tropic
in the mall might catch me in a Hot Topic
we can talk if somebody wanna knock it
cause we coming at dangerous speeds ya can't stop it
