God you say is always the answer
What is the answer for our cruelty?
We punish a life 'til it's life ever after
After the place that we all end up being

Oh, such is a morn' as this to awaken
Forgotten the hour that was yesterday
With a standing blow to the head of frustration
Divide and we fall have you nothing to say

So let us rise up, stand and be counted
Stand and be counted, on that let's agree
Rise up, dig out the cancer
Dig out the cancer of futility

Many's the word that's been broken true anger
Lips that are sealed as the hour slips away
Belief is a joke to this lost generation
Building the walls as the mind segregates

When all is said
The voice that is silent can't be heard

So let us rise up, stand and be counted
Stand and be counted, on that let's agree
Rise up, dig out the cancer
Dig out the cancer of futility

For we, we shall overcome someday

So bring me the head of the old palace tribe
For there is the rapture that bleeds out a life
Hand over fist from their pulpit they spew
Liars they'll crumble, not knowing the truth

When all is said
The voice that is silent can't be heard

So let us rise up, stand and be counted
Stand and be counted, on that let's agree
Let us rise up, dig out the cancer
Dig out the cancer of futility

Rise up, stand and be counted
Stand and be counted, on that let's agree
Let us rise up, dig out the cancer
Dig out the cancer of all human greed

For we, we shall overcome

Rise up, rise up
Rise up, stand and be counted
Stand and be counted, on that let's agree
Rise up, dig out the cancer
Dig out the cancer of all human greed
