David Keenan – Rise Up Lyrics

Another god led astray
It  seems to me the numbers growing day by day
In  this part of town
Mothers cry when they find out
Strangers start to point it out
Such  a big shock
He  came from good stock
They will try and stamp you out
People  they will bawl and shout
Get up get up get up get out and go
If you keep walking in them shoes
It’s certain you’ll be (?) and bruised
I  don’t want that for you
Rise up and see
Birds in the trees
You been living in the dark
You should be singing with the lark
I’m not sure if you know
What’s in store for your soul
Won’t you heed the whispers
Of your brother and your sister
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life for it
Your sunken face it hides the shame
The heavy weight of your family’s name
Leaves its mark upon your skin
Drinking from a dirty cup
Fallen deeper with every sip
Fallen deeper with every sup
With the fire within
Chase those ghosts of sin
People try and stamp you out
People they will bawl and shout
Get up get up get up get out and go
If you keep walking in them shoes
Certain you’ll be (?) and bruised
I don’t want that for you
Rise up and see
Birds in the trees
You been living in the dark
You should be singing with the lark
I’m not sure if you know
What’s in store for your soul
Won’t you heed the whispers
Of your brother and your sister
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Rise up
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Layin’ down your life
Well, I’d lay down my life for you
