All I see is
Shattered pieces
I can't keep it hidden like a secret
I can't look away!
From all this pain in a world we made!

Everyday you need
A bulletproof vest
To save yourself from what you could never guess!
Am I safe today?
When I step outside in the wars we wage!

Our future's here and now,
Here comes the countdown!

Sound it off, this is the call!
Rise in revolution!
It's our time to change it all,
Rise in revolution!
Unite and fight, to make a better life!
Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call, tonight, we rise!

Rise.
Tonight, we rise
Rise.
Tonight, we rise!

Like a hand grenade,
Thrown in a hurricane,
Spinning in chaos,
Trying to escape the flame,
Yesterday is gone!
Faster than the blast of a car bomb!

And when the scars heal,
The pain passes,
As hope burns, we rise from the ashes!
Darkness fades away!
And a light shines on a brave new day!

Our future's here and now,
Here comes the countdown!

Sound it off, this is the call!
Rise in revolution!
It's our time to change it all,
Rise in revolution!
Unite and fight, to make a better life!
Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call, tonight, we rise!

Rise.
Tonight, we rise
Rise.
Tonight, we rise!

In a world gone mad,
In a place so sad!
Sometimes it's crazy
To fight for what you right is!
But you can't give up,
If you wanna keep what you love!
(Keep what you love)
(Keep what you love)
(Keep what you love)
(Keep what you love)
Never give up, no!

Rise.
Rise in revolution
Rise.
Rise in revolution

Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call!

Rise
Like we're alive
Tonight, we rise
Make a better life
Tonight, we rise!

Rise, rise, rise in revolution
Rise, rise, rise in revolution
Rise.

*phone rings*

Operator: 911?
Woman: There's a guy here with a gun!
Operator: Ma'am? Ma'am?
Woman: Kids, get under the table! Kids get under the table!

*News reporter*: We are getting reports from all around the globe, showing
The highest unemployment rates since the end of World War II. Many are
Losing their jobs, their homes, and in many cases, their hope.

*Upset parent*: You are such a failure! What is wrong with you? You can't
Do anything right! I wish you had never been born!
