Little sister where you going?
This early in the morning it’s too dark
While the western world is sleeping
you keep working through the break of dawn

Little brother’s back home dying
Epidemic left you both alone
So you pray to God each day
that heaven opens and He takes you home

We are the ones
who trade our faith for the cold
We raise our flag as we fold
We live our lives alone
never letting the sunlight guide us home

Hey brother in America,
why the lonely spirit underneath?
Rich parents and a party every weekend but something’s missing
What you wouldn't give
for the love you’ve sought since you were young
Instead a never ending thrill
Forget your innocence and carry on

We are the ones
Who trade their faith for the cold
We raise our flag as we fold
We live our lives alone

We are the ones
Who welcome storms in the rain
We hide behind all our pain
Never letting the sunlight dry our eyes
Never letting the light into our lives

Get up, Get up!
There will be a way for you
Get up, Get up!
We're all in the same fight here

Eh oh eh oh

The truth reaches
Hold it high
The truth reaches
Together cry

We are the ones
Together united
We are the ones
Together, united we’re fighting
