C'mon and rise above
C'mon, angel, let's rise above
Whoo!
Wahoo!

C'mon, c'mon and rise above
(Rise above)
C'mon, c'mon and rise above
They'll tell ya you don't even need a reason to feed
It's the same for us so why you making a fuss, oh

C'mon, c'mon and rise above
(Rise above)
C'mon, c'mon and rise above
They say "I don't even mind if you hurt your kind"
It's the price you pay in society

I used to think that everything
Was made by the hand of God
And then I saw the crystal light
And I knew I was wrong, so wrong
Have you ever needed anybody
Ever needed anything
Have you ever needed anybody
So let's live in sin, oh

C'mon, c'mon and rise above
(Rise above)
C'mon, c'mon and rise above
They're saying "I don't mind if you hurt my kind
It's the price you pay, I'm sorry to say"

I used to think eternity
But in truth it don't appeal to me
But I wouldn't want to spoil your party
Oh, no, oh, no
You say you never needed anybody
You say you never needed anything
You never needed anybody
So c'mon and live in sin, oh

C'mon, c'mon and rise above
(Rise above)
C'mon, baby, let rise above
They're saying I don't mind if you kill my kind
Put the chains on me I'm like a social disease, disease

You say you don't need me, you never needed me
Is this the truth you tell to me
(Rise above)
Is this the truth I tell to you
You know I'm not laughing at you

C'mon, c'mon and rise above
(Rise above)
C'mon, c'mon and rise above
I don't mind if you hurt my kind
But the same disease says help me, help me, help me
Help me, help me!

Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, oh, ho, ho, ho, ho
Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, oh
Oh, no, no, no, no, oh, no, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no, no, oh, no, no
Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho
(Oh, wahoo!)

Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, oh, ho, ho, ho, ho
Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho, oh
Oh, no, no, no, no, oh, no, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no, no, oh, no, no
Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho
(Oh, wahoo!)

(C'mon c'mon rise above)
Come on, baby, come on
C'mon c'mon rise above)
Come on, baby
They tell you I don't mind if you hurt you kind
It's the same for me, come on, help me, help me, please!
Come on

(C'mon c'mon rise above)
Come on, baby, come on
(C'mon c'mon rise above)
Come on, angel
They're saying I don't mind if you hurt my kind
It's the same for me like a kick in the balls, yeah
