With beats by Mvkvdi and lyrics and melody by Brenda Carsey, “Stand Up” is a mid-tempo R&B and Alternative Hip Hop song that calls for unity and understanding in this time of deception, division, violence, and alienation.


“Stand Up"
Lyrics and melody © 2021 Brenda R. Carsey

Shit’s getting tough
I’ve had enough
Of the fighting, of the lying
Of the hateful stuff
Deception full range
Perception real strange
Sick people walkin’ around
Try to disengage

Too many liars start fires through the wires, babe
Too many toons and goons for the hire, babe
Too many fools with mouths wide open
With no words spoken
Not thriving, just coping

Why you in denial?
You know it’s not in style
The world changes fast
And it’s worth your wild
To wake up and break up and shake up
Stop wasting our time fool and shape up!

Humanity faces a huge reckoning
We’re all connected no matter what you believe
Stop the hate and fear is what we’re beckoning
We’ve got to grieve these thieves
To achieve and leave

Stand up and get ready for the marchin’
Bring your friends ‘cause we all gotta dive in
Ain’t no rest when you gotta rise quickly
No stress, all flex, can you feel me?
