Anthrax – One Man Stand Lyrics

The enemy is dead

I can’t believe what i said

The enemy is dead

Did it only exist in our head?

Sheltered from the evils of the world

until the truth is seen

Sheltered from realities of life,

your human rights are free

Freedom, taken for granted

’cause we don’t know what oppression means

Freedom, taken for granted

by the leaders who would crush the dream

A crack, exposing human rights

Light against a granite sky

A crack, exposing human rights

A fire burns

For the freedom, for the freedom, for the freedom

Never given but taken

For the freedom

Die for the reason

One man stands

Hard as he waits for freedom’s hand

A unified voice for freedom of choice

One man stands for

Life

He’ll give his

Would you give yours to fight for a cause

One man stands

And the wall cracks, and the wall cracks

And the wall cracks, and the walls come crumbling

Down with old ideals that could never work in modern times

Free choice, religious freedom,

basic rights are on the bottom line

Down with all the icons of the past cold war and detente

The flock no longer fears the wolf,

the flock is taking what it wants

A crack, exposing human rights

Light against the granite sky

A crack, exposing human rights

A fire burns

For the freedom, for the freedom, for the freedom

Never given but taken

For the freedom

Die for the reason

One man stands

Hard as he waits for freedom’s hand

A unified voice for freedom of choice

One man stands for

Life

He’ll give his

Would you give yours to fight for a cause

One man stands

And the wall cracks, and the wall cracks

And the wall cracks, and the walls come crumbling

Down!

One man stands for life – i never questioned

One life costs us all – they love their children

Every man stands and fights – who is my enemy?

One man’s rule will fall – one man stands

One man stands

Hard as he waits for freedom’s hand

A unified voice for freedom of choice

One man stands for

Life

He’ll give his

Would you give yours to fight for a cause

One man stands

And the wall cracks, and the wall cracks

And the wall cracks, and the walls come crumbling

Down!
