Rise

This song is by Bad Brains and appears on the album Rise (1993).

Did you ever question
any of the things
they taught you while you were at school
And did you ever question
oh my teacher
why do you take me for a fool?

Chorus:
Rise up, you got to rise
Rise up, wake up and rise

When you're all alone
you'll search for love
but they'll have none
this is the seed that they have sewn
don't be afraid a better place has yet to come
and when they won't teach or reach or feed you
and all they do is leave you deceive you
be true to yourself
and save your mind
lesson for the young
so now let's fly away
into the light of a brand new sun
the time has come

Chorus

We'll meditate communicate, escalate
don't be late, we just can't wait
to liberate this human race

Go!

Chorus

Don't let them
don't let them take away your culture
Don't let them
Don't let them take away your future
Rise up, you got to rise

Music by:

Israel Joseph I / Darryl A. Jenifer
