It's better to stand up and shout than lie down and whimper
With the heal of the 1% trying to hold you down
I can't just stand here and do nothing, so I'll join the 99% downtown.

Stand with the many on the courthouse steps
Wishing the law wasn't broken - Hoping we can fix it.
But I don't know - I just hope so
I know that I must stand so brothers here I am

It's better to stand up and shout than lie down and whimper
With the heal of the 1% trying to hold you down
I can't just stand here and do nothing, so I'll join the 99% downtown.

I'm really not a fighter - I'm a lover of this country
Not of the government, but a lover of the land
There's so much that's broken - I'm not sure how to fix it
But I do have faith and that is why I stand

It's better to stand up and shout than lie down and whimper
With the heal of the 1% trying to hold you down
I can't just stand here and do nothing, so I'll join the 99% downtown.

I stand for freedom - I stand for justice
I stand for honesty, integrity and all that we hold dear
I pray for the future - for our children
It's for the future that I stand

It's better to stand up and shout than lie down and whimper
With the heal of the 1% trying to hold you down
I can't just stand here and do nothing, so I'll join the 99% downtown.

I'm choosing to stand up and shout
Not lie down and whimper
This is my choice. I choose to stand.
