Rise Above

(Greg Ginn)

Jealous cowards try to control
They distort what we say
They try and stop what we do
When they can’t do it themselves

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it’s no use

Society’s arms of control
They think they’re smart, can’t think for themselves
They laugh at us behind our backs
I find satisfaction in what they lack

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it’s no use

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it’s no use

We are born with a chance
I am going to have my chance
We are born with a chance
I am going to have my chance

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us, it’s no use

Rise above
We’re gonna rise above
Rise above
We gotta rise above
Rise above
C’mon let’s rise above
Rise above
We gotta rise above

Rise above
We’re gonna rise above
Rise above
C’mon let’s rise above
Rise above
We’re gonna rise above
Rise above
Let’s rise above

Rise above
We’re gonna rise above
Rise above
We gotta rise above
Rise above
C’mon let’s rise above
Rise above
We gonna rise above
