lyrics

There’s a look that’s in your eyes... it’s one I’ve come to recognise
You can’t hide a smile and I know your heart has skipped a beat
And the signs are plain to see, you’ve got to know it’s killing me
I only see your face light up when it’s lit up by your screen
It’s a bitter pill to swallow, a truth that’s hard to take
Road is hard to follow, it’s a habit I can’t break
There’s nothing that can fill this hole
No holy words in empty scrolls
No bridges built without their trolls

Why don’t you rise? (rise)
Sun could be shining on a brighter day
Won’t you rise (rise)
‘Cos we can make this world a better place

Red carpet wannabees ....They’re the prophets of our modern age
Captivated by the show, (and I can tell) you never spot them switch the bait
No redress and no debate just angry words and howls of hate
While the party sells your rights off - until there’s nothing left to celebrate
You can close your eyes to a truth that you don’t want to see
And I’d take you to the bridge but you’d burn it out from under me
Eyes are locked to your device
The verses twisted up in lies
The words all blurring wrong and right

Why don’t you rise? (rise)
Sun could be shining on a brighter day
Won’t you rise (rise)
‘Cos we can make this world a better place
Why don’t you rise?
