  • Jealous cowards try to control
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    They distort what we say
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    Try and stop what we do
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    When they can't do it themselves
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above

    We are tired of your abuse
    Try to stop us, it's no use

    Society's arms of control
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    Think they're smart, can't think for themselves
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    Laugh at us behind our backs
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    I find satisfaction in what they lack
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above

    We are tired of your abuse
    Try to stop us, but it's no use

    We are tired of your abuse
    Try to stop us, but it's no use

    We're born with a chance
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    I am gonna have my chance
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    We are born with a chance
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above
    And I am gonna have my chance
    Rise above, we're gonna rise above

    We are tired of your abuse
    Try to stop us, it's no use
    Rise above
    Rise above
    Rise above
    We're gonna rise above
    We're gonna rise above
    We're gonna rise above Writer/s: GREGORY REGIS GINN
