Rise people rise

whether you're blue, black, orange

or white rise up,

rise up to those teachers

who say you will never make 

it anywhere in life,

rise up to those who say you're

wrong but in reality you're right,

rise up fellow americans cause one

day we won't be able to

make it out of this situation in life,

rise up don't settle for nothing

settle for a life,

a generation where young are

in a dog fight,

with drugs, weapons, and

addicts who throw away

their life,

Rise up economic supporters

take a political stand to fix

whats been done the wrong way

and make it right!
