Outcry

Album: A Dramatic Turn Of Events (2011)

  • Somewhere overhead
    Distant thunder roars
    The revolution has begun
    The war to end all wars

    As I welcome death
    I hear the battle cry
    Bullets fall like fire
    Raining from the sky

    The rebel in us all
    Someday gets tired of being pushed around
    But freedom has a price
    The cost is buried in the ground

    We suffered far too long
    We gather now growing stronger
    We will not be ignored
    Anymore any longer
    Our anthem will guide us

    Rise up, be counted
    Stand strong and unite
    Wait for the outcry
    Resistance is calling tonight

    Far too many years
    Of chaos and unrest
    Far too many voices
    Brutally suppressed

    We fight for what is just
    For all that we believe
    We fight till death or glory
    Fight to be set free

    The streets are bathed in blood
    Time to step down and time to walk away
    You'll never rule me now
    Though you may stand upon my grave

    You can look the other way
    Or you can face the light
    Although it seems so far away
    Freedom's worth the fight

    Rise up, be counted
    Stand strong and unite
    Wait for the outcry
    Resistance is calling

    Rise up, be counted
    Stand strong and unite
    Wait for the outcry
    Resistance is calling tonight

    The world watches on
    While we risk our lives
    Locked in a kingdom of fear
    As our children die Writer/s: JOHN MYUNG, JOHN PETRUCCI, JOHN RO MYUNG, JORDAN CHARLES RUDESS, JORDAN RUDESS
