Lyrics

“Not only is another world possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
-Arundhati Roy

There is a giant, she is sleeping now.
Her eyes are closed, her ears don’t hear a sound
Sky above her and the earth beneath
When all is quiet you can hear her breathe

All across the land, all across the land (2x)

There is a mother weeping for her son
A soldier fallen in the war
“Bring back my child, what has he ever done?”
Her cries are ringing out the window, out the door…

All across the land, all across the land (2x)
Crying oh, oh, oh, oh

There is a young man in a uniform
Been overseas and back again
“I will not fight another war for them
For the rich the poor kill other poor men”

All across the land, all across the land (2x)

There is a giant, she is waking now
Her eyes are open, and she listens to the sound
Of the sky above her and the earth beneath
When all is quiet, you can hear her breathe

And she is rising, she is rising, she is rising, she is rising
All across the land, all across the land (2x)

We are rising up, we are rising, we are rising up!
