Lyrics
You are the sun
I am the flame
You are the blood
I am the same
We are the love
That rises again
They are the snake
That bites on your veins
We are not chained to the wheel
You are the tear
I have no fear
You are so strange
I feel the same
Sorcerous mind
We rise again
We are not chained to the wheel, to the wheel

Itís the way that you feel
Itís the truth in your eye
You got wings upon your back
And you can fly
Itís the way that you feel
Itís the truth in your eye
ĎCos you're up against the world
And still you rise
And still you rise

You are alive
Hide in my dreams
You are the stars
That mystify me
And you are the wolf
That frightens the thief
And you are the voice
That that they disbelieve
We are not chained to the wheel
And you are the spark
That sets us all free
We are not chained to the wheel, to the wheel

Itís the way that you feel
Itís the truth in your eye
You got wings upon your back
And you can fly
Itís the way that you feel
Itís the truth in your eye
ĎCos you're up against the world
But still you rise
And still you rise

Whaoh, baby

Itís the way that you feel
Itís the truth in your eye
You got wings upon your back
And you can fly
Itís the way that you feel
Itís the truth in your eye
ĎCos you're up against the world
But still you rise
And still you rise
And still you rise
And still you rise
