just woke up

Rise up rise up
Oh rise and show your power
Rise up rise up
Everybody dance into the sun
Rise up rise up
It's time for celebration
Rise up rise up
The spirits time has come

Talkin' 'bout the right time to be workin' for peace
Wantin' all the tension in the world to ease
Watch the love run wild in the streets
We want to be free, we want to be free
Talkin' about a new way to talk about changing our names
Talk about building the land of our dreams
This tightrope's gotta learn how to bend
We're makin' new plans
Gonna start it again
