RISE UP
by Ellen Gennaro

Post apocalypse they came
filled with sorrow wrapped in shame,
Never thought the world would end this way
I saw terror in their eyes
when they heard the sirens cry,
As hell rained from the skies that mournful day
They’d been hypnotized by lies they believed the alibis 
They were taken by surprise and blown away 

I woke up from this nightmare
with the sunlight on my face 
My dream a fading memory
left a warning in its place 
Frightened boys with deadly toys
want kingdoms of their own 
Blinded by ambition
they’ll destroy our sacred home 

Post apocalypse they came
filled with sorrow wrapped in shame 
Our story doesn’t have to end this way 
I will not surrender power
to the fools in gilded towers 
When they promise to bring back the glory days 
Every mountain’s gonna shake
every dam is gonna break 
Let’s climb to higher ground before doomsday 

The Emperor stands naked
in the clothes he has put on 
Dorothy wears magic shoes
the Wizard is a con 
Shepherds finally recognize
the wolves in sheep’s disguise 
Trojan gates stand closed
before the horse left as a prize 

Post apocalypse they came
filled with sorrow wrapped in shame 
I won’t back off or look the other way 
Everyone has got a choice
everyone has got a voice 
Brothers Sisters Come Rise Up and have our say 
Now’s the time to take a stand
joined together hand in hand 
Brothers Sisters Come Rise Up and Light the way
 
Rise Up Rise Up Rise Up and Light the way 
Rise Up Rise Up Rise Up and Light the way
