Stand Up

from by The Uncouth

lyrics

You knew that they were lying
When they said that you could be anything
You weren't fooled
Everybody's got their place
At the top there's only so much room
But not for you

They told you "Son, just keep your head down
Do what they tell you to
Somebody's gotta take their shit
It might as well be you"

Stand up
And be counted among the strong
Remember
You don't have to bow to anyone
"Cause when you do
You'll stay where they say you belong
Don't forget
You don't have to bow to anyone

And if they can, they'll take all your time
As if your life is something that you owe
Something they own
Your dignity's been purchased
As a means for them to buy another home
Living a life you'll never know
You're just trying to keep the lights on
They're drowning in cash
So take that dirty uniform
And shove it up their ass

Stand up
And be counted among the strong
Remember
You don't have to bow to anyone
"Cause when you do
You'll stay where they say you belong
Don't forget
You don't have to bow to anyone


I will not bend, I will not break
I won't give in
No not to you

I will not bend, I will not break
I won't give in
No not to you

Stand up
And be counted among the strong
Remember
You don't have to bow to anyone
"Cause when you do
You'll stay where they say you belong
Don't forget
You don't have to bow to anyone
