Arise, arise
From the dead, I say
Arise, like never before
Come back and tell us
What we've done all wrong
So we may do it no more.

Arise in the shadows
Of the terrible things
That we've don in the old dark times
Then whisper in our ears
That what we're doing today
Are the same old terrible crimes.

Arise at midnight
Like the living dead
Haunt us forever like a ghost
For you're like all the men
And women that died
In the thousands of wars that we lost.

Arise at Sand Creek [Pearl Harbor]
At the Little Bighorn [Iwo Jima isle]
And then come to Wounded Knee [Nagasaki]
For on these battlegrounds
Not only some indians [soliders] died
But also you and me.

And it's the same
All around this world
Wherever a battle was fought
We just get blood
And death for everyone
When we use weapons instead of thought.

Arise at Sand Creek [Pearl Harbor]
At the Little Bighorn [Iwo Jima isle]
And then come to Wounded Knee [Nagasaki]
For on these battlegrounds
Not only some indians [soliders] died
But also you and me.

Arise and let us
Remember as well
All the good things we had
For seeing how easily
And recklessly
We throw them away makes me really mad.

So, teach us again
To love and care
For with that is nothing wrong
Many would be surprised
How working better together
Would make us mighty and strong.

Arise at Sand Creek [Pearl Harbor]
At the Little Bighorn [Iwo Jima isle]
And then come to Wounded Knee [Nagasaki]
For on these battlegrounds
Not only some indians [soliders] died
But also you and me.

Now, you're not Jesus
And you're no saint
You haven't died lonely on a hill
You died side by side
With thousands of your kind
And I'm sure this wouldn't be any god's will

No, it's up to us all
To arise against
The big bullys of money and power
Reach out for the freedom
That we all deserve
Right here, right in this hour.

Arise, Arise
May you be living or dying
Arise, like never before
Come out and tell them
That what they've done to us
They can now do it no more!
