Thread: DC Rally - Theme Song Suggestion

    DC Rally - Theme Song Suggestion

    Blast the Bob Marley rasta-man song "Get Up, Stand Up" @ the DC Rally for the Cure.

    Get up stand up, for your right... oh yeah, get up stand up...

    "We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, 'Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to someone's plea. You have a part to play. Have faith.' We can decide to risk that He is indeed there, watching, caring, cherishing us as we love and accept love. The world will be a better place for it. And wherever they are, the angels will dance."

    At some point .....

    I can't stand to fly
    I'm not that naive
    I'm just out to find
    The better part of me

    I'm more than a bird...I'm more than a plane
    More than some pretty face beside a train
    It's not easy to be me

    Wish that I could cry
    Fall upon my knees
    Find a way to lie
    About a home I'll never see

    It may sound absurd...but don't be naive
    Even heroes have the right to bleed
    I may be disturbed...but won't you concede
    Even heroes have the right to dream
    It's not easy to be me

    Up, up and away...away from me
    It's all right...you can all sleep sound tonight
    I'm not crazy...or anything...

    I can't stand to fly
    I'm not that naive
    Men weren't meant to ride
    With clouds between their knees

    I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
    Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
    Only a man in a funny red sheet
    Looking for special things inside of me
    Inside of me
    Inside me
    Yeah, inside me
    Inside of me

    I'm only a man
    In a funny red sheet
    I'm only a man
    Looking for a dream

    I'm only a man
    In a funny red sheet
    And it's not easy, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm...

    Its not easy to be me

    One of my favs......

    Fight The Good Fight
    by Triumph

    The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
    Feels like we're running out of time
    Every day it seems much harder tellin' right from wrong
    You got to read between the lines

    Don't get discouraged, don't be afraid, we can
    Make it through another day
    Make it worth the price we pay

    The Good Book says it's better to give than to receive
    I do my best to do my part
    Nothin' in my pockets I got nothin' up my sleeve
    I keep my magic in my heart

    Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
    I am counting on you
    You know what you've got to do

    CHORUS:
    Fight the good fight every moment
    Every minute every day
    Fight the good fight every moment
    It's your only way

    All your life you've been waiting for your chance
    Where you'll fit into the plan
    But you're the master of your own destiny
    So give and take the best that you can

    You think a little more money will buy your soul some rest
    You'd better think of something else instead
    You're so afraid of being honest with yourself
    You'd better take a look inside your head

    Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
    But I can tell you where to start
    Take a look inside your heart
    There's an answer in your heart

    Sick Of Life by Godsmack

    Paralyzed. Nothing's getting through to me.
    Hypnotized from all my surroundings.
    I wanna be something I could never be.
    I wanna say things that I could never say.
    Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!

    Sick of my life. I'm tired of everything in my life.

    Dragged down. Rubbing my face in the ground.
    No time for the undecided.
    I wanna know why I've always felt alone,
    And I wanna love. Why am I untouchable?
    Yeah, I'm gonna do it again!

    Sick of my life. I'm tired of everything in my life.
    I never wanted to be sick of my life.
    I'm tired of everything in my life.

    ...

    I love Rusty's suggestion!!!

    Here is another one:

    BON JOVI LYRICS

    "It's My Life"

    This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
    No silent prayer for the faith-departed
    I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
    You're gonna hear my voice
    When I shout it out loud

    [Chorus:]
    It's my life
    It's now or never
    I ain't gonna live forever
    I just want to live while I'm alive
    (It's my life)
    My heart is like an open highway
    Like Frankie said
    I did it my way
    I just wanna live while I'm alive
    It's my life

    This is for the ones who stood their ground
    For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
    Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
    Luck ain't even lucky
    Got to make your own breaks

    [Chorus:]
    It's my life
    And it's now or never
    I ain't gonna live forever
    I just want to live while I'm alive
    (It's my life)
    My heart is like an open highway
    Like Frankie said
    I did it my way
    I just want to live while I'm alive
    'Cause it's my life

    Better stand tall when they're calling you out
    Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

    [Chorus:]
    It's my life
    And it's now or never
    'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
    I just want to live while I'm alive
    (It's my life)
    My heart is like an open highway
    Like Frankie said
    I did it my way
    I just want to live while I'm alive

    [Chorus:]
    It's my life
    And it's now or never
    'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
    I just want to live while I'm alive
    (It's my life)
    My heart is like an open highway
    Like Frankie said
    I did it my way
    I just want to live while I'm alive
    'Cause it's my life!

    Walk Tall by* John Mellencamp

    The simple minded
    And the uninformed
    Can be easily led astray
    And those that cannot connect the dots
    Hey look the other way
    People believe what they want to believe
    When it makes no sense at all
    So be careful of those killing in Jesus's name*
    He don't believe in killing at all*

    And I wish you a long sight line %
    And the strength to walk tall %
    Walk tall
    Yeah walk on
    Through this world
    Walk tall
    Somewhere out in the distance
    Is the death of you and me
    Even though we don't think of it much
    It's still out there for us to see
    If you treat life like a bar room fight
    You'll die stinking of gin
    No drunkards are allowed in heaven
    No sinners will get in
    Walk tall
    Yeah, walk on
    Walk tall
    Through this world
    Walk tall
    So be careful in what you believe in
    There's plenty to get you confused
    And in this land called paradise
    You must walk in many men's shoes
    Bigotry and hatred are enemies to us all
    Grace, mercy and forgiveness
    Will help a man walk tall
    So walk tall
    Yeah, walk on
    Walk tall
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Yeah, walk tall
    Then walk on
    Walk tall
    Then walk on
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Through this world
    Walk tall
    Walk tall
    Then walk on
    Walk tall
