Standing Watching Shadows

A song…

These eyes have seen
trouble in a weary world.
And I might step out
but I can’t find the door.
And it seems you have been broken
but you don’t break down.
Final words have been spoken
but you aren’t on the ground.
We are standing watching shadows disappear.

I don’t mind. I don’t mind. I don’t mind. I don’t mind.
We are standing watching shadows disappear.

We see the sun
shining through a smoky veil.
Then all at once
they can’t even tell.
Where one becomes another
we don’t say and we won’t show.
Your father and my brother
they will never know.
We are standing watching shadows disappear.

I don’t mind. I don’t mind. I don’t mind. I don’t mind.
We are standing watching shadows disappear.

And strange the sound
of everything we’re going go be.
And we have found
that it’s our chains that make us free.
And when we stand together
there’s a chain that just won’t break.
It’s light as a feather
and the struggle fades away.
We are standing watching shadows disappear.

So stand up. Stand up. Stand up. We can stand right up.
We can stand, stand right up, we can stand right up.

And all at once
I am not afraid.
And I can see your shining face.
So I lift my eyes up
from the cold, cold ground.
Well there’s no way that I’m taking this
sitting down.
So stand up. Stand up. Stand up. Stand up.

And will you stand right up
look him in the eyes.
When he pulls his trigger
it ain’t you that dies.

Stand up. Stand up. We can stand right up!
