Walk Into the Sun

While someone told us to wait
And said “Go on with your sleeping.”
They put a sign on the gate
Sayin’ “Work will set you free.”

Now I don’t like to hate
But they got another thing coming
If they think there’s a way
I’m gonna ever let that be

You can cower in the back of the cell
Hoping the hangman will pass you by...

Or you can wake up, stand up,
Step out into day light
Jump up, dive in,
Walk into the sun
Hit first, hit fast,
Knock 'em til they lay down
Jump up, dive in,
Walk into the sun."

That thing about "liberties"?
You know they're taken not given
If you want to be free
Sometimes you have to take a stand

Because the powers that be
Won't entertain a quiet question
Power never concedes
A single thing without a demand

You can cower in the back of the cell
Hoping the hangman will pass you by...

Or you can wake up, stand up
Step out into day light
Jump up, dive in
Walk into the sun
Hit first, hit fast, Knock 'em til they lay down
Strike hard, don’t stop
Walk into the sun

It's been a deep mean sleep
It's been a cold, dark winter
We might have dug too deep
To think we'd ever see the sun

We had a good hard cry
And now we're done with our weepin'
We got us just one life
When it's all been said and done

You can cower in the back of the cell
Hoping the hangman will pass you by...

Or you can wake up, stand up
Step out into day light
Jump up, dive in
Walk into the sun
Hit first, hit fast,
Knock'em til they stay down
Jump up, dive in,
Walk into the sun
Wake up, stand up
Step into your own life
Jump up, dive in
Walk into the sun
Hit first, hit fast,
Step over the hangman
Jump up, dive in
Walk into the sun!
