Stand up and get ready for what’s coming
Stand up, breathe in
Check your eyes it’s about us
Mother nature don’t lie, it’s about us
Stand up, breath in

There’s a place in space the captive like to go
And I been sleeping on it way too long
I’m coning home

And if you’re tired of waiting for the sun
Raise your hands
To shed a little light on everything you’ve done
Raise your hands
If you’re stuck under a rock and you want to roll
I know where to take you if you want to go
Raise your hands

Now I’ve been down before and I’ll be down again
And I’ll be damned if I wont need a true friend
Not the kind that’s always got to give advice
The kind with love, I just need someone who’s nice to me

Do you know what it’s like
To be so down that up
Ain’t in sight?
Now if you’re with me let me see you
Stand up and raise your hands

And if you’re tired of waiting for the sun
Raise your hands
To shed a little light on everything you’ve done
Raise your hands
If you’re stuck under a rock and you want to roll
I know where to take you if you want to go
Raise your hands

I’ll carry you, you carry me
I got to be wrong sometimes
Teach me how to be strong sometimes
I’ll stand for you, you stand for me

Oh, I know that I can count on you
Never let the sun set down on you
I love you

And if you’re tired of waiting for the sun
Reach on up and grab it

And if you’re tired of waiting for the sun
Raise your hands
To shed a little light on everything you’ve done
Raise your hands
If you’re stuck under a rock and you want to roll, yeah
Well, I know where to take you if you want to go
Raise your hands
I said I know where to take you if you want to go
Raise your hands
Come on, I know where to take you if you want to go
Raise your hands

We’re all hoping, we’re all hopeless
We’re all thorns and we’re all roses
We’re all looking down our noses at ourselves
We’re all flawed and we’re all perfect
We’re all lost and we’re all hurting
And just searching for somebody to love

We’re all liars, we’re all legends
We’re all tens that want elevens
We’re all trying to get to heaven, but not today
We’re all happy, we’re all hatin’
We’re all patiently impatient
And just waiting for somebody to love

We’re all good, but we ain’t angels
We all sin, but we ain’t devils
We’re all pots and we’re all kettles
But we can’t see it in ourselves
We’re all livin’ ’til we’re dying
We ain’t cool, but man, we’re trying
Just thinking we’ll be fixed by someone else

We all wrangle with religion
We all talk, but we don’t listen
We’re all starving for attention then we’ll run
We’re all paper, we’re all scissors
We’re all fightin’ with our mirrors
Scared we’ll never find somebody to love

We’re all good, but we ain’t angels
We all sin, but we ain’t devils
We’re all pots and we’re all kettles
But we can’t see it in ourselves
We’re all livin’ ’til we’re dying
We ain’t cool, but man, we’re trying
Thinking we’ll be fixed by someone else

Just tryin’ to hold it all together
We all wish our best was better
Just hopin’ that forever’s really real
We’ll miss a dime to grab a nickel
Overcomplicate the simple
We’re all little kids just looking for love
Yeah, don’t we all just want somebody to love?

the change

One hand reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say “what good have you done
By saving just this one?”
It’s like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart still believes
That love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage
And so many say
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
It’s like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying “you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing”
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world we know
Never changes me

What I do is so
This world will know
That it will not change me
