Rise Up Lyrics

Testament – Rise Up Lyrics

from album: Dark Roots Of Earth (2012)
When I say rise up
When I say war
That means the time is now
To even up the score

The leader speaks
His plan has failed before
Enlisted soldiers
Awaiting orders

It's time for justice
Just like before
Our troops protect and serve
Are they ever coming home?

So much regret
Another killed by war
Such a tragedy
Enlisted soldiers obey their orders

When I say rise up
You say war
When I say rise up
You say war

Rise Up... War!
Rise Up... War!
Rise Up... War!
Rise Up... War!

The smell of death
Reeks through the air
The stench of burning bodies
Bloodshed everywhere

Scattered remains
And bullet shells
Send in the dogs of war
Unleash the hounds of hell

It's time to rise up
It's time to rise for war
It's time to rise up
Black is death and red is war

Yeah, I said rise up
And you said war
All for one and one for all
The perfect world war

All of the rest
Will fail just like before
Such a tragedy
The fallen soldiers, they followed orders

When I say rise up
You say war
When I say rise up
You say war

Rise Up... War!
Rise Up... War!
Rise Up... War!
Rise Up... War!
