Submit to pressure from peers
and you move down to their level.
Speak up for your own beliefs
and you invite them up to your level.
If you move with the crowd,
you'll get no further than the crowd.
When 40 million people believe in a dumb idea,
it's still a dumb idea.
Simply swimming with the tide leaves you nowhere.
So if you believe in something that's good,
honest and right, stand up for it.
Maybe your peers will get smart and drift your way.
