Get up my Brother. Get up off the ground.
But you can't see me any more, you cannot hear a sound.

Stand up my Friend. Stand up and be strong.
Do not ask and do not tell if you're right or wrong.

Whoo Who Who Oh.
Whoo Who Who Oh.

Speak up my Sister. Speak up and be heard.
Tell them of your circumstance, the truth that you have learned.

But they will not listen. They don't want to hear.
They just take your children, and they send them over there.

Whoo Who Who Oh.
Whoo Who Who Oh.

Nice track! Reminds me of Toad the Wet Sprocket. Nice instrumentation. Love the vocal!!

Great driving beat and electric guitar part. Love the voice as well. I also like the addition of piano, which I don't hear a lot in the "hard rock" genre, but works well here.
