Rise Today

Verse 1

The wind is blowing cold
Have we lost our way tonight?
Have we lost our hope to sorrow?

Verse 2

It feels like we're all alone
Running further from what's right
And there are no more heroes to follow

Pre-
Chorus

So what are we becoming?
And where did we go wrong?

Chorus

Yea-yeah, oh yea-eah
Oh, won't you rise today
And change this world

Chorus

Yea-yeah, oh yea-eah
Oh, won't you rise today
And change this world?

Verse 3

The sun is beatin' down
Are we ever gonna change
Can we stop the blood from running?

Verse 4

Our time is runnin' out
Hope we find a better way
Before we find we're left with nothing

Pre-

For every life that's taken
So much love is wasted

Yea-eah, oh yea-eah
Oh, won't you rise today
And change this world?

Chorus

Yea-eah, oh yea-eah
Oh, won't you rise today
And change … this world?

Bridge

Only love can set it right
… This world
If only peace would never die
It seems to me that we've got each other wrong
Was the enemy just your brother all along?

Yea-eah, oh yea-eah
I wanna rise today
And change this world?

Yea-eah, oh yeah
Oh, won't you rise today
And change this world?

Oh, won't you rise today
And change this world?

Yea-eah, oh yea-eah
I wanna rise today
And change this world?
Oh-ho-houh
Mmmm-mmm-hm … mmm-hm
