Lyrics

Take A Stand

Here comes the cacophony polyphony the great big symphony
Bright light shining through the night of misery
Song ringing ‘round the world about unity
in hip-hop-folk-rap-rock-punk-country
We all know that we’re all one family
a couple billion leaves growin’ on the tree
All we ever wanted was to be free
Can someone please help me with some harmony
‘Cause I wrote a little song you can sing along
With words so easy it won’t take you long
No matter how you sing you can’t go wrong
‘Cause the melody’s easy and the backbeat’s strong

It’s ok, it’s ok
We’re gonna make it to the day together

Take a Stand, Take A Stand, Take a Stand!
In every land, ‘cause we all want the same thing!
Just to be free!
So take my hand and Take A Stand, Take a stand!

This one’s going out to my brother’s in the hood
My brother’s in the hood ‘cause I always knew you would
This one’s going out to my family in Iraq
Holding out hope while the big bomb’s drop
Going out to my blood in Israel
We’ll never get to heaven through the gates of hell
Argentina Venezuela Mexico
Todos Santos in Bahia Samba Ranchero
To my West Virginia home in the hills so high
I hope I’m in your arms on the day I die
Africa America Europe Asia-Australia
Let the spirit start flowing into you

It’s alright, it’s alright
We’re gonna make it through the night together

Take a Stand, Take A Stand, Take a Stand!
In every land, ‘cause we all want the same thing!
Just to be free!
So take my hand and Take A Stand, Take a stand!

When I got up this morning I was feeling so free
That all I want to do is go and sing and sing
About how we could all live happily
Would someone please tell me what’s got into me?
It’s a cacophony polyphony a great big symphony
Bright light shining through the night of misery
Song ringing ‘round the world about unity in hip-hop-folk-rap-rock-punk-country
A little ditty you can sing along
With words so easy it won’t take you long
No matter how you sing you can’t go wrong
Cause the melody’s easy and the backbeat’s strong

It’s so cool, it’s so cool
All we ever have to do together

Take a Stand, Take A Stand, Take a Stand!
In every land, ‘cause we all want the same thing!
Just to be free!
So take my hand and Take A Stand, Take a stand!
Take a Stand, Take A Stand, Take a Stand!
Take my hand, and Take A Stand, Take a stand!
