Seize The Day - Rise Up lyrics

Observations I have made
Into focus, then the fade
Piper's agent bought and paid
Slippery slope-ness of the grade
Tricks of light that I have seen
Poor man in the limousine
Guns in glossy magazines
GM cotton pair of jeans

Chorus:
Hold onto the faith, this life is a miracle,
Each moment is new, one step at a time.
Rise up from the fear; be free of the manacles,
Let love be the key, one step at a time.

Ploughshares forged into the blade
Rosy-quartz turned into jade
Vodka dressed as lemonade
Theft of land disguised as 'aid'
Rainbow slick of gasoline
Net of oneness turned obscene
Sweatshop that is clean and green
Working child not heard or seen

Chorus:
Hold onto the faith, this life is a miracle,
Each moment is new, one step at a time.
Rise up from the fear; be free of the manacles,
Let love be the key, one step at a time.

One day at a time, one step at a time,
Keep on walking and stay in line;
Leaders of the world are moving too slow,
Tellin' us just what they want us to know.
But we know better and we'll never stop
Dealing with the issues that they won't look at;
People in this time, we're stronger than before
Our power keeps growing more and more and more!

Chorus:
Hold onto the faith, this life is a miracle,
Each moment is new, one step at a time.
Rise up from the fear; be free of the manacles,
Let love be the key, one step at a time.

Supermarket in the glade
Squatters busted in the raid
Twisted flock that prayed and played
Leaders blunting light with shade
Fishing fleet that's caught between
Cost of the fast-food machine
PR firms that gloss the scene
Crushing of the could-have-been...

Chorus (x4):
Hold onto the faith, this life is a miracle,
Each moment is new, one step at a time.
Rise up from the fear; be free of the manacles,
Let love be the key, one step at a time.
