Lyrics

If You Don't Stand Up

Verse1:
How many times have heard somebody call a decent man a name
When you know damn well just how you'd feel, if they treated you the same
Did you hold your tongue in silence as you turned to walk away
Did you hang your head and tell yourself ain't nothing' I can say
Chorus:
It's time to open your mind. It's time to open your heart
It's time to open the door, and let some healing start.

If you don't stand up for something,
If you don't stand up for something,
If you don't stand up for something.
Brother you'll fall for anything.

Verse 2:
How many times have you kept your distance while a woman stood in shame
As you hid there in the shadows afraid to take the blame
For some rumors that you started, or maybe helped along the way
Those little white lies turn black as night in the light of day

Chorus

Verse 3:
How many times have you taken the low road lookin' for an easy way out
Of a one way street lined with memories that you can't bear thinkin' about
Did your conscience fail to guide you, or did you just ignore the hand of fate?
That keeps on knockin', knockin' at your door.

Chorus:
It's time to open your mind. It's time to open your heart
It's time to open the door, and let some healing start.

If you don't stand up for something,
If you don't stand up for something,
If you don't stand up for something.
Brother you'll fall for anything.

If you don't stand up for something,
If you don't stand up for something,
If you don't stand up for something.
Sister you'll fall for anything.
