Rising of the Ghetto

This song is by Ryan Bingham and appears on the album Tomorrowland (2012).

Can you hear the sound of footsteps gathering around
Loud and clear, been going around here for years
From land to the sea, from shackle to city streets
They struggle and strike, travelin' through day and night
Two colors of skin, who stand here to all join in

Among the crowd, say out loud
The time is now, for the rising of the ghetto
For the rising of the ghetto

There's no turning 'round, we will never be put down
Alive and well, we have not the time to fear
It's here and it's real, for all who can see and feel
To speak up for truth, to speak up for me and you
Time and again, it ways for us to join in

Among the crowd, say out loud
The time is now, for the rising of the ghetto
For the rising of the ghetto
For the rising of the ghetto
For the rising of the ghetto

Well, it's been a long time here on the wrong side
Running from flashlights in alleys on dark nights
Watching the home team, kill our American dream
And keep us at arm's reach in case there's a war to feed
And it's been the same around here for years
And everybody's tired of the fellows
Who try to make it hard to live around here
Get ready for the rising of the ghetto, whoa
