Lyrics

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
Don't start a fight just because you can win
Don't take a stand just 'cause that's how it's always been

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
Mind your own business is the best you can do
If you want to make a change let it start with you

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
Protect your life and your property
Your life and your property are sacred to me

People are born free and free they must be
But I can't let your freedom imprison me
We can live together or perish one by one
We're all one family when all is said and done

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
You can stand up straight for what you believe
If you stand for right you're also standing for me

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
Don't let your prejudice throw you a curve
And don't let a bully make you lose your nerve

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
Don't play games just because you can win
You might win the game but lose your soul in the end

People are born free and free they must be
But don't make your freedom imprison me
We can live together or perish one by one
We're all one family when all is said and done

You can stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Or you'll cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
Stand your ground, but stay in your lane
Don't cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain

Stand your ground, stay in your lane
Stand your ground, stay in your lane
Stand your ground, stay in your lane
Stand your ground, stay in your lane
Stand your ground, stay in your lane
Don't cause a lot of problems and a whole lot of pain
