Artist/Band: Flobots
Lyrics for Song: Stand Up
Lyrics for Album: Fight With Tools [2008]



Stand up

We shall not be moved

Except By a child with no socks and shoes

If you've got more to give then you've got to prove

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

Stand up We shall not be moved

Except by a woman dying from the loss of food

If you've got more to give then you've got to prove

Put your hands up and I'll copy you



We still don't understand thunder and lightning

Flash back to when we didn't fund the dam

Didn't fund the damn levee? No wonder man

Now our whole damn city's torn asunder man

Under water but we still don't understand

We see hurricane spills over on the land

Through gaps you couldn't fill with a 100 tons of sand

No we still don't understand

We've seen planes in the windows of buildings crumbled in

We've seen flames send the chills through London

And we've sent planes to kill them and some of them were children

But still we crumbling the building

Underfunded but we still don't understand

Under god but we kill like the Son of Sam

But if you feel like I feel like about the son of man

We will overcome



So Stand up

We shall not be moved

Except By a child with no socks and shoes

If you've got more to give then you've got to prove

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

Stand up We shall not be moved

Except by a woman dying from the loss of food

If you've got more to give then you've got to prove

Put your hands up and I'll copy you



I said Put your hands up and I'll copy you

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

If you've got more to give then you've got to prove

Put your hands up and I'll copy you



We shall not be moved

Except By a child with no socks and shoes

Except by a woman dying from the loss of food

Except by a freedom fighter bleeding on a cross for you

We shall not be moved

Except by a system that's rotten through

Neglecting the victims and ordering the cops to shoot

High treason now we need to prosecute



So Stand up

We shall not be moved

And we wont fight a war for fossil fuel

Its times like this that you want to plot a coo

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

So Stand up

We shall not be moved

Unless were taking a route we have not pursued

So if you've got a dream and a lot to do

Put your hands up and I'll copy you



I said Put your hands up and I'll copy you

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

if you've got a dream and a lot to do

Put your hands up



Now shake, shake

A Polaroid dream

nightmare negatives develop on the screen

We sit back and wait for the government team

Criticize they but who the fuck are we

The people want peace but the leaders want war

Our neighbors don't speak, peek through the front door

House representatives preach "stay the course"

Time for a leap of faith

Once More



Put your hands up high if you haven't abandoned

Hope that the pen strokes stronger than the cannon

Balls to the wall, Nose to the grindstone

My interrogation techniques leave your mind blown

So Place your bets lets speak to the enemy

Don't let em pretend that we seek blood

And who's we anyways Kemo Sabe?

Mighty warlord wanna-be street thug

a threat for a threat leaves the whole world terrified

blow for blow never settles the score

word for word is time need clarify

We the people did not want war



So Stand up

We shall not be moved

Except By a child with no socks and shoes

If you've got more to give then you've got to prove

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

Unless were taking a route we have not pursued

So if you've got a dream and a lot to do

Put your hands up and I'll copy you



I said Put your hands up and I'll copy you

Put your hands up and I'll copy you

if you've got a dream and a lot to do

Put your hands up
