When you see the road ahead that you’ve been down before
When you’re halfway to nowhere and you can’t pay the toll
You’re hanging onto mercy withered on the vine
With your feet on the ground, your head in the clouds
And your heart on the line
Open up your eyes

You’ve got to rise up rise up when this life has got you down
You’ve got to look up look up when you search and nothing’s found
My eyes have seen the glory of the love that’s here and now
It’s coming down, so rise up now
(Yeah rise up now, oh rise up now)

When you’re told that day is over long after the sun goes down
And your mind it keeps on racing at the dreams that don’t come ’round
When you don’t know how to surrender cause your whole life’s been a fight
When the dark holds you and you can’t break through
Cause you haven’t seen the light
Open up your eyes

And all the lambs roar like lions
And all the prisoners breaking their chains
And all the poor find their treasure
Cause heaven is coming this way
