Verse 1:

The preacher repeatin' their scriptures

While the people are paintin' their pictures

They still complainin' and bitchin'

Waiting in vain to get paid attention

A couple of things, covered in strings

But talkin' failed to mention

Tell me whatever happened to

Veterans gettin' their pension

First, they sayin' they're payin' for college

Your body exchanged for knowledge

But, what good is a mind, whenever we find

Another one locked in a coffin, y'all?

My brother was up in Iraq

While his brother was singin' this song

I'm chantin' to bringin' him home

And most of the people were singin' along

Except for middle American

Flag wavin', fag hatin'

Praisin' sayin' yellow ribbon campaignin' hate

On anybody debatin' I salute you

In definite ways that they could never have done for you

In truth they hardly knew you

But they killin' it, hallelujah, huh

Stop the marchin' orders

While the soldiers gettin' martyred for

Stop the war

Wishin' it all was easy like The Commodores

My mind is sore, thinkin' of war

Thinkin' of all the fallen

You are gone but not forgotten

You alive proceed with caution

Know that sleep is not an option

Don't follow 'em into the slaughter

The reason that all of the youth

Should salute Lieutenant Watada

 

Hook (2x):

And I... got your back even if they don't believe in us

Just leave it up to us to keep the love they try to steal from us

Please accept the offerin'

Don't forget we sovereign

A letter to the sufferin'

It's time to keep on marchin'

 

 

Verse 2:

And they still debatin' the scriptures

While the people are paintin' their pictures

Still complainin' and bitchin'

Waitin' in vain to get paid attention

A couple of things, covered in strings

But talkin' failed to mention

Tell me whatever happened to

Askin' a couple of questions

They put us in competition to cause affliction with opposition

The friction is probably fiction

They lookin' for pots to piss in

Watch, the boss is up in the loft, laughin'

Uppin' the cost of livin' the cot

But buildin' while the cops are killin' 'em off

Women and children

Politicians who mock religion and talk tradition

They all just just wishin' that all the listeners fall victim

The pistols are drawn, the sinister laws

Are killin' the calls of citizens' march

And soon will start repentance

The minister called deliverance

Guerrillas defendin' their villages

In spite of all of our differences

We're fightin' over percentages

We drafted into the battle that

We never remember considerin'

We simmerin' down

It's bigger than even the king or the crown

"Stand up or fall down", the people are sayin' it loud

"Stand up or fall down", the people are sayin' it loud

"Stand up or fall down", the people are sayin' it loud

 

Repeat hook
