Stand

This song is by DeGarmo and Key and appears on the album D&K (1987).

There's a fire that burns in a young man's heart
There's a raging storm in his soul
He's tired of hearing the unborn cry
But what can he do alone?
He can raise the voice of injustice
He can join in the victor's band

Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted

He's not loud, he doesn't want to stand out
He works real hard to fit in
He can feel the pain of the breaking hearts
Torn in two by the sin
On the one hand he wants to be wanted
But that's not what his conscience demands

Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted

And the blood of the prophets screams out
From injustice of days gone by
They died in the streets to set prisoners free
Prisoners like you and like me

Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted
Stand, stand up and be counted

Stand, stand up and be counted
(C'mon, stand!)
Stand, stand up and be counted
(Stand)
Stand, stand up and be counted
(You've got to stand)
Stand, stand up and be counted
(C'mon and stand, hey!)
