  • Wake up, set your sights
    For never shall we fail
    Stand up for your rights
    And justice will prevail

    You're listening
    Through endless nights
    And decision is your goal
    So wake up, set your sights
    Oh, the time is right for your role
    Yeah, or your role

    Wake up, wake up, wake up
    Set your sights
    Never, never, never
    Shall we fail
    Stand up, stand up, stand up
    For your rights
    Justice, justice, justice
    Will prevail

    There in the morning
    Flying over the hills
    While men are yawning
    They are crushed by our wills
    Never have I witnessed
    People in fear
    Not like today
    Not in many a year

    Go kill another
    There are more close behind
    "No" screams a mother
    "Are you out of your mind"
    Though they are shattered
    They just don't seem to yield
    Bodies are scattered
    In all parts of the field

    Oh no, did I tell you
    What would happen if you tried
    "Oh god, stop this killing!"
    Said a young man
    Before he died
