I wrote song years ago. Too bad it's still as true today as it was way back when.

Lyrics

People Stand Up

Verse
It ain't easy living with guilt
when you don't think you done anything wrong
and your critics are always harsh
whenever you heed the call.

Pre-chorus
How much faith do you have in yourself
how much trust in the people behind you

Chorus
People need to stand up right
and be counted
People need to stand up and be strong
people need to stand up right
and see the light before it turns off.

Verse II
I once had a friend who got lost
he had to learn before he got taught
now he's just caught up in the game
with no one left to blame but himself

Pre-chorus
How much faith do you have in yourself
how much trust in the people behind you.

Chorus
People need to stand up right
and be counted
People need to stand up and be strong
people need to stand up right
and see the light before it turns off.

Verse III
People start a riot after the ballgame
kids are killing one another school
The police across the street are beating some black man
They say he's got nothing to lose.

Pre-Chorus
How much faith do you have in yourself
How much trust in the people behind you.

Chorus
People need to stand up right
and be counted
People need to stand up and be strong
people need to stand up right
and see the light before it turns off.

Before it turns off.
