lyrics

Stand up…

Don’t stand up in a cinema, that’s rude
Sit down if you’re blockin’ the view
We gotta share this pale blue dot
With a lot of people, it’s not all about you
Stand up for the right to survive and thrive
And collect a little private property
Stand up for the principle that some things
Have still gotta to be held commonly
Stand up for the quality of the atmosphere
We can’t each have a private patch of air
Stand up for the people
Who can’t stand up to defend their share
Imagine generations lookin' back at us
Like: “Grandma, grandpa
You knew what was happening, did you stand up?
Or did you pass that chance up?”
Did you stand up
To defend the rights of a polluter?
Or did you stand up
For the planet, for humanity, and for the future?
Did you stand up
For elected officials who really get it?
Or did you stand up
For a fossil fuel company’s interests?
When everybody’s standing up
You gotta stand up if you wanna see
It’s not enough to just sit yourself down
You gotta get the rest of us to agree
