Track Name: Arise
It’s time for us to take the power
That you have took for granted
Your system's had its time
Imperial ways supplanted
Don't say, ‘it can’t be done’
We’ll do it all the same
You’ve failed us the last time
We’ll leave you with your shame.

What’s started now can’t be stopped
But of course we know you’ll try
We’ll trample you underfoot
Your legacy will die
Now that we have come together
Nothing can stop us rise
Even with your toy tin soldiers
You will never match our size.

Nothing can stop us rise! (repeat)
