From the recording Rise Up (Make This Moment Last)
This inspiring song by singer-songwriters Maria Daines and Paul Killington embodies the spirit of the animal rights movement. It asks us to “rise up to the love in our hearts” and dedicate ourselves to ending the pain and suffering we inflict on animals.
RISE UP (MAKE THIS MOMENT LAST)
By Maria Daines and Paul KillingtonFrom the land to the seaFrom the mountain to the shoreWe hear your voiceIn your pain, in your needIn defense we are hereTo lead you forthFor the moments we loveAre the moments we shareForever moreAnd the freedom we giveIs our spirit relivedEver yours...Rise up and heal them, rise up and care for themRise up to the love in our hearts, rise up for the animalsMake this moment lastIn this life we are onePaws, hands and heartsHooves, feathers, wingsNothing is lost if only we uniteOur song begins...For the reasons are pureIf our kindness is sown in the windThis moment shall growAnd onwards we goAnd we beginRise up and heal them, rise up and care for themRise up to the love in our hearts, rise up for the animalsMake this moment last
