Stand
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: John Popper

Stand
Stand and walk
Tragedy
Is cheap and so is talk
Decision
Yours to make what will you do
In the end
It comes back to you
Cause it's a long... way to fall

Thunder
Don't scare me at all
Lightning
Well just a little
Pressure
It ain't worth a dime
And your wounds
They'll all heal in time

Cause it's a long... way to fall

The answers are getting harder
The answers are getting harder
The answers are getting harder
(If an answer comes to those who pray)
The answers are getting harder
(If an answer comes to those who pray)
The answers are getting harder
(If an answer comes to those who pray)

The answers are getting harder and harder
And there ain't no way to bargain or to barter
But if you've got the angst or the ardor
You might faint from the fight but you're gonna find it
For every challenge could have paradise behind it
And though it might make one or two [?]
[?] just what you had
And if you accept what you have lost and you stand tall
You might just get it back and you can get it all
And you feel like your back's against the wall Now you know why it's a long way to fall
So now you know why it's a long way to fall
Yeah cause it's a long way to fall

Cause it's a long... way to fall

(scat solo)
Live
With all your might
Hold on
It'll be all right
Strength
It'll see you through
In the end
It comes back to you

Cause it's a long... way to fall

Stand
Stand and walk
Stand
