VERSE

HOLD YOUR OWN, OR BE OWNED, BY THE HIGHER AUTHORITY,
LET IT BE KNOWN, THAT THE RESISTANCE IS ON THE INCREASE,
WHO NEEDS LABOUR AND TORES YEAH, WHEN WE HAVE OUR OWN MIND,
ALWAYS THE SAME OLD STORY, IT'S TIME TO LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE, YEAH.

CHORUS

WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, WHILE WE CAN,
WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, NOW WE HAVE IT IN OUR HANDS,
GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, WHILE WE CAN,
WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, OH NO.

VERSE

I'M THE MAN WITH THE FALSE ACCUSATION, BUT A MODERN WARFARE WAS NOT MY INTENTION, SEE,
MORE CRIME, MORE DESPERATION, WILL ONLY LEAD TO DESTRUCTION,
SO TELL ME NOW (WHERE DO WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS?)
WHERE DO WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS (WHERE DO WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS?),
I SEE, MORE CRIME, MORE DESPERATION IT'LL ONLY LEAD TO DESTRUCTION.

CHORUS

WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, WHILE WE CAN,
WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, NOW WE HAVE IT IN OUR HANDS,
GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, WHILE WE CAN,
WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, OH NOO.

VERSE

A MODERN WAR WAS, NOT OUR INTENTION,
SO LET US UNITE YEAH, NATION WITH NATION,
WHY CAN'T YOU SEE,
WHY CAN'T YOU SEE YEAH, YEAH, AHH NO.

MIDDLE 8

NA NA NA NA WOOAH, OO WOAH, OOH WOAH,

OH LORD.

CHORUS

WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, WHILE WE CAN,
WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, NOW WE HAVE IT IN OUR HANDS,
GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, WHILE WE CAN,
WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL OF THE SITUATION, OH NOW YEAH.
Track Name: Don't Stand Alone (Acoustic)
Verse

When you go to sleep, do you dream for a better world?
Where the living is easy, and thought of war is just absurd,
I gotta tell you I do, yeah,
Stand for peace and truth,
But the way the world is run, they wanna stay in war,
You gotta ask yourself, what we fighting for?
I'm singing,

Chorus

Don't stand alone,
When all hope seems lost,
Hold on better days will come, woo-ooahh,
Don't stand alone,
When all hope seems lost,
Hold on better days will come, yeah,
Hold on better days will come.

Bridge

Woah, woah, woah, woah,
Woah, woah, woah, woah,

Verse

Hear the word on the street,
No-ones ready to give in to defeat,
We know their talk is cheap,
So hold it together, yeah hold it together,
And when you're feeling lonely,
Yeah when you're feeling down,
Just look up at the stars and notice, there's still a cloud,
And loneliness is just a period,
And people will move along,
Loneliness puts the fear in us, which soon the world will act upon,
Cause it seems,
The way the world is run, they wanna stay in war,
You gotta ask yourself, what we fighting for?
I'm singing,

Chorus

Don't stand alone,
When all hope seems lost,
Hold on, better days will come, woo-ah,
Don't stand alone,
When all hope seems lost,
Hold on, better days will come, yeah,
Hold on, better days will come.

Middle 8

And when they come, yeah we'll tell them where to go,
(Tell em where to go)
Yeah when they come, yeah we'll tell them where to go,
(Tell em where to go)
Don't wanna live in a world where destruction lays,
I speak for all when you hear me say.

Chorus

Don't stand alone,
When all hope seems lost,
Hold on better days will come, woo-ooah,
Don't stand alone,
When all hope seems lost,
Hold on, better days will come, yeah,
Hold on, better days will come, yeah,
Hold on, better days will come, yeah,
Hold on, better days will come.
