STAND UP
Verse 1
There comes a time for every man
And woman to choose to stand
There comes a time when we can’t look away
In every generation
Comes a time for reparation
In every life, a cause
That we must stand up and fight for

Bridge:
How can anyone just look away
When by the grace of God
It could be you or me
Or our community?
How can we refuse to stand
For what’s right for our fellow man?
It’s time to stand in unison and say!

Chorus:
It’s time to stand up for Standing Rock
It’s time to stand beside our brothers
And our sisters in their time of need
It’s time to stand up for Standing Rock
It’s time to put away indifference
Dividing lines and all their inference
It’s time to stand together, like a rock
The time’s today

Verse 2
Corporate greed and government
Have little regard for sentiment
They railroad people every day
But it’s we the people who own this land
It’s we who’ve built it with our hands
And it’s we who must stand up this time and say

CHORUS:
It’s time to stand up for Standing Rock
It’s time to stand beside our brothers
And our sisters in their time of need
It’s time to stand up for Standing Rock
It’s time to put away indifference
Dividing lines and all their inference
It’s time to stand together, like a rock
The time’s today

Bridge:
You and me, we know what’s right
We watch the news, we know their plight
For some, they may still choose to look away
But you and me can’t close the book
This chapter needs another look
It’s time to stand in unison and say!

Chorus:
It’s time to stand up for Standing Rock
It’s time to stand beside our brothers
And our sisters in their time of need
It’s time to stand up for Standing Rock
It’s time to put away indifference
Dividing lines and all their inference
It’s time to stand together, like a rock
The time’s today
