Stand - Lyrics
In the end you'll still be you
One that's done all the things you set out to do.
There's a cross for you to bear
Things to go through if you're going anywhere.
For the things you know are right.
It's the truth that the truth makes them so uptight.
All the things you want are real.
You have you to complete and there is no deal.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah.
Oom bah bah bah Oom bah bah bah
Huh! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya .
They will try to make you crawl.
And they know what they're saying makes no sense at all.
Stand! Don't you know that you are free?
Well, at least in your mind if you want to be.
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya.
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya. (etc. to fade)
