Track Name: Chin Up! - Don't Give Up The Ship
Don’t Give Up The Ship

This ship is sinking
But this is not the end of the line
I can’t tell you what the future holds
I can’t tell if it will be all right

Just hang on to the driftwood
There’s help in sight
There’s so much yet to live for
If you make it through the night

Hold on
This is not the end
Move on
This is not the end

This is not a wall
It’s a door
Move through it
This is not the end

This is not a wall
It’s a door
Move through it
This is not the end

This ship is sinking
But there’s land in sight
This ship is sinking
But there’s land in sight


Don’t give up the ship
Don’t give up the ship
Don’t give up the ship
Don’t give up the ship
Track Name: Chin Up! - When Dreams Become Nightmares
When Dreams Become Nightmares

we sunk our roots into the soil
and worked our fingers to the bone
never doubting for a moment
that this place would be our home

for fourty years a blue collar slave
and they took everything, everything he ever gave
he was a husband, a faithful father, provider
(just another faceless piece in the lifeless machine)
he watched his dreams turned to cinders before his eyes
two kids, a house, a loving wife
a life of no regrets
and it all came crashing down around him,
brick by brick

where do you turn when there is nothing left
where do you turn when there all hope is gone
NO HOPE
just another victim of this nation of corporate greed

the american dream is a lie
the ones with the biggest and the best , in the end they still all die
the american dream is a lie
the system is crumbling from the inside

refuse, resist
fight with your mind and not with your fists
wash away the years of lies, of guilt, of abject shame
we will stand against tryanny, we must be the change
Track Name: Chin Up! - Moving Mountains
Moving Mountains

this is for my friends
this is for my family
this is more than just music
this is community

we've had each other's backs
through the good times and the bad
and when i finally reach the end
i'll look back and i'll smile
at all the good times that we had

it doesn't matter the color of your skin
it doesn't matter where you're from
it doesn't matter if you're gay or straight
('cause) this is home

you are all my friends
you are all my family

and together
we can move mountains
we can change the world
