Lyrics

Raise the Bar

Written By: Eric Proffitt

Lyrics:
Someone’s got a job to fill - who will be the next to try to guide the nation
Something somewhere has gone wrong - so long ago we drifted far from our foundation.
It’s hard to see through these shadows
we’ve been strapped in, trapped in Back in yesterday

(Chorus)

Raise the Bar - Someone’s gotta make the difference
Raise the Bar – People like you and me
Deciding who will go the distance
My Vote is on- the man of integrity

The office has known the glare of affairs that belittle such a high position
With spin-doctors in the news, some abuse their power giving us their own rendition
It’s hard to see through these shadows
we’ve been strapped in, trapped in Back in yesterday

(Chorus)

Raise the Bar - Someone’s gotta make the difference
Raise the Bar – People like you and me
Deciding who will go the distance
My Vote is on- the man of integrity

This is not about religion
Black or caucasion
Or whether you’re a man or a woman
This is all about the nation

(Chorus)

Raise the Bar - Someone’s gotta make the difference
Raise the Bar – People like you and me
Deciding who will go the distance
My Vote is on- the man of integrity

Little Child
Where are you going?
Where have you been?

Little Child, bitter tears
Little love, great big fears,
Feeling lost, wanting found
In a world turned upside down

Mothers and Fathers
Who long to be free

Sons and Daughters

Little Child, bitter tears
Little love, great big fears,
Feeling lost, wanting found
In a world turned upside down

RISE

V3
God above
Lead them to shelter
To lay down in peace
Most of….all
Never surrender (let them remember)
They’ve got to believe

CH:
Little Child, bitter tears
Little love, great big fears,
Feeling lost, wanting found
In a world turned upside down

Out of Love in our hearts
Give us strength to do our part
Find the captive; free the slave
Guide us to a brand new day

Find the captive; free the slave
Guide us to a brand new day
