Music That Kicks Political Ass: Stromkern "Stand Up"

song often here

listen/watch here (alternate link)

Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That your sick of them lies and you’re not gonna take it.
Now the people on the right, ain’t no time to waste,
Gonna start it off now, bring it on now, bring another
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up,
Stand up and demand some answers
What! C’mon, can you hear me in the back.
If you can’t, let 'em know and we'll turn up the track -
So c’mon.

This is a song dedicated to the lost
Triggered by the light and devoured by the holocaust
Well you prayed for daylight and it never came
So you better start praying again
Well it’s not a psychosis and it’s not a relief
And it’s nothing that’s certain and it’s not a belief
It’s a just a sad fact. Maintain the illusion.
You want a solution
We want a revolution

Well I’ll follow; we’ll synchronize
So many confined at one place and at one time
And there’s so much at hand that I don’t understand
And circumstances demand that we all better take a stand
Giving in once, well you’re giving in twice
Giving in three times; like you’re giving them light
But they can’t keep secrets ‘cause they know they’re wrong
And they can’t keep us down ‘cause we’re too damn strong

Chorus:
Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That your sick of them lies and you’re not gonna take it.
Now the people on the right, ain’t no time to waste,
Gonna to start if off now, bring it on now, bring another
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up,
Stand up and demand some answers
What! C’mon, can you hear me in the back.
If you can’t, let 'em know and we'll turn up the tracks.
So c’mon.

Well an enemy yours is an enemy mine
And I’m just not sure if I’m wasting your time
If I could see the inertia I would give it a try
But I gotta project or I gotta deny
Nothing is wrong here, but something ain’t right
I don’t feel this - I’m not seeing this
Something ain’t happening - plus I got a feeling
Don’t make a sound - keep your eyes on the ceiling

It’s automatic; I know we used to have it
And I wanted to let it go; I wish it would make it so
Nothing’s gonna save me when the chips are down
Nothing’s gonna save you if you don’t act now
But the current event is like a curdling sound
The event hypothetical is better than now
The action on the trigger’s just to stay in your mind
Any action or reaction is just a matter of time

Now the people on the left let me see your faith
I want to start it off slow then we’ll pick up the pace
And now the people on the right ain’t no time to waste
Been a long time coming gonna hit the ground running
Now the people in the crowd let me see those hands
‘Cause it’s so far gone I’m not surprised no one understands
What! Turn it up can you hear me in the back
Fly now so we testify so we can never die
Fly now so we testify so we can never die
So we fly

So we all pretend we’re oblivious
Perfectly serious
Tell me that you needed this
Never know what you’re gonna find
Never know what you might have left undefined
But I can tell you what it won’t be
Another web of confusions
Of lies and illusions
You can’t imagine the half of them
Petrified
Genocide
Masterminds
Worlds that they’ve undermined
It’s a place it’s a time it’s a lifeline
It’s a chance to atone for a lifetime
Reach your hands to the sky when you testify
Put ‘em up keep ‘em up until you realize
Killing them once is like killing them twice
Killing with something that’s a killing device
It’s killing them slowly then it’s killing them nice
If it’s killing your act
I want a reich

Chorus:
Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That your sick of them lies and you’re not gonna take it.
Now the people on the right, ain’t no time to waste,
Gonna to start if off now, bring it on now, bring another
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up,
Stand up and demand some answers
What! C’mon, can you hear me in the back.
If you can’t, let them know when we turn the tracks.
So c’mon

Now the people on the left let me HEAR your faith
I want to start of slow then we’ll pick up the pace
Now the people on the right ain’t no time to waste,
been a long time coming but you’ll hit the ground runnin’
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands,
Cause it so far gone and that’s a price no one understands
What! Turn it up. Can you hear me in the back?
Right now is when we testify so we can never die.
Right now is when we testify so we can never die
So fine

Right now is when we testify so we can never die
