Stand Up Lyrics by Chris Webby

Chris Webby – Stand Up Lyrics

Lately I’ve been contemplating
Watching humans tear apart
This fucking planet
Like they’ve never heard of moderation
The people running things
Ain’t worried about no conservation
Unless there’s money in the conversation
But what happens when the soil is too toxic?
For the plants to grow
And all our drinking water is polluted

All I know is humans are the cancer of the planet
Forecast: lots of global warming with a chance of snow
Hoping things will change
But I doubt they ever will
Mother nature dying
While we yelling drill, baby drill
So in turn the world’s heating up,
Climate change creeping up
Hell, at least those folks at Exxon made a decent buck

Carbon footprints on the world
That’ll never wash away
While the ones in charge of it
Ignoring what we got to say
Still we got to try,
All we got is you and I
Put your mother fucking fists in the sky,
Come and

Stand up, stand up
If you gonna fight for what you believe
Stand up, stand up,
If you ain’t falling
For what they teaching
Stand up, stand up,
If any time your back’s up against the wall
Stand up, stand up,
Take away my freedom,
You’ll give me the reason to stand up

I don’t dabble much in things that are political
But it ain’t hard to see
That half these politicians running shit
Are criminals
They way we written history
Is strictly fictitiously
Still they try tricking me,
Telling me that I’m living free
Now keeping quiet
While they take away our freedoms
And the mainstream media decides
What you’ll be seeing
So I’m skeptical of everything,
Don’t know what to believe in

Cause they lying to us right under our noses
And we know it
But there’s nothing we can do to control it
And it’s got me losing sleep
Cause I’m seeing shit different
Than when I was younger
Watching world hunger
While the economy’s going under
Too caught up in reality shows and cell phones
Eatin’ food full from the GMO’s to say
I’ve had enough of all these lies
All we got is you and I
Put your fucking fists up in the sky
Come and

Stand up, stand up
If you gonna fight for what you believe
Stand up, stand up,
If you ain’t falling
For what they teaching
Stand up, stand up,
If any time your back’s up against the wall
Stand up, stand up,
Take away my freedom,
You’ll give me the reason to stand up

See now we’ve got these countries beefin’ with us,
On some World War III shit
Things about to change,
You’d be blind not to see this
Civil unrest the greatest country in the west
Bout’ to crumble like the Roman Empire, nonetheless
Our oceans full of plastic,
And the air is full of chemicals
While we let it happen like it’s consensual
But fuck that
Educate yourselves
And don’t fall
For what they been tellin’
Just tell them to throw there fist in the sky
And start a rebellion

Stand up, stand up
If you gonna fight for what you believe
Stand up, stand up,
If you ain’t falling
For what they teaching
Stand up, stand up,
If any time your back’s up against the wall
Stand up, stand up,
Take away my freedom,
You’ll give me the reason to stand up
