lyrics

There's so much they say that we can't do
That we may try but we're bound to lose
Brushed aside as simpletons and fools
We're told our places, but our hearts they blaze and we
Stand up anyway
Stand up anyway

And the fight
May be one that we cannot win
But that don't mean they're right
And if we take this one on the chin
That don't mean we won't be
Getting right back up again

Is it naive to dream of change
When the world's favorite refrain
Is "In the end, what difference can it make?"
To fight seems crazy but still these days we
Stand up anyway
Stand up anyway

And the fight
May be one that we cannot win
But that don't mean they're right
And if we take this one on the chin
That don't mean we won't be
Getting right back up again

We may see that what they say is true
And history won't tell of me or you
Our legacy, it may only prove
Yeah, to be that in the end we stood
So we stand up anyway
We stand up anyway

And the fight
May be one that we cannot win
But that don't mean they're right
And if we take this one on the chin
That don't mean we won't be
Getting right back up again
