Oh yeah

Wake up, set your sights for never shall we fail
Stand up for your rights and justice will prevail

You're listening through endless nights
And decision is your goal
So wake up, set your sights for the time is right for your role
Yeah, for your role

Wake up, wake up, wake up, set your sights
Never, never, never shall we fail
Stand up, stand up, stand up for your rights
Justice, justice, justice will prevail

There in the morning, flying over the hills
While men are yawning they are crushed by our wheels
Never have I witnessed people in fear
Not like today, not in many a year

Go kill another, there are more close behind
No screams of mother, are you out of your mind?
Though they are shattered they just don't seem to yield
Bodies are scattered in all parts of the field

Oh no! Did I tell you what would happen if you tried?
"Oh God, stop this killing!" said a young man before he died

Wake up, set your sights for never shall we fail
Stand up for your rights and justice will prevail
