Rise Up (Album)


Lyrics

"Time"

Time is all we have
Time is in our minds
Seems it’s always fading always leaving us behind
Time most times returns
But never will it stay
One day
Time will leave our side and all we’ll be is time

Time is holding us
Time is so confined
Though it’s never ending ever flowing on the line
Time’s a measurement
For what has slipped away
One day
Time must be complied and all we’ll be is time

You’ve fallen for the ruse
When fear becomes the muse
But darling don’t be afraid of
nor discouraged by the pain
It’s part of the human experience to experience the inhumane

Time is running out
Time won’t rewind
It refuses Time confuses and abuses yet refines
Time is imminent
When there’s nothing left to say
One day
Time and Now divide and all we’ll be…
Someday
Time will leave our side and all we’ll be is Time

"Spinning Around The Sun"

Teardrops fall from her eyes
As she looks down at all she’s compromised
Though she’s lost, we’ve so sadly won
The Earth keeps spinning around the Sun

Night comes and suffocates the day
Until light breaks the chains away
Though the war is all but done
The Earth keeps spinning around the Sun

How high must we grow to see the other side?
How far must we fall until we see nothing’s there to catch us at all?

Moments come and moments go
What do we have to show?
When all that we know has gone
The Earth will keep spinning around the Sun

"Nothing Left To Lose"

There was moonlight on the mountain
The valley was askew
But the rising waters led us through
Just as we arrived
Desperation grew
They had nothing left to lose

Baptized by the fire
The air around us plumed
As the cast aside were split in two
Forced to testify
To things they never knew
There was nothing left to lose

Risen from the ashes
Fallen from the truth
But the midnight mile saw us through
The bayou came alive
With the sins of forgotten youth
When we had nothing left to lose

"Rise Up (We Won’t Be Denied)

Facing great calamity
They say the only remedy
Is finding some piece of mind

There’s things in life we all can change
Like how we love and what we make
Of moments as they pass us by

So rise up, face the day
With convictions from deep inside
This time we won’t be denied

Staring down your demons you
Can find a thousand reasons to
Crawl inside yourself and hide

Courage is when all is lost
And hopeless has defined the cause
But you still try to find the light

And rise up, face the day
With convictions from deep inside
This time we won’t be denied

There are times you have lost your way
Tears have overwhelmed your eyes
Burdens try they may to suffocate
We overcome when we survive

Dealing with uncertain fate
Is not the time to postulate
Nor is it the time to fall

Though it may seem out of reach
And failure haunts your reverie
You can break down all the walls

And rise up, face the day
With convictions from deep inside
This time we won’t be denied

"Supermoon"

The super moon was in the sky
It was late and I was tired
You set into the story of your life

I was the first one that you let in
So I kept quiet and let you begin
We set out to break the night

Sometime seems far away
But I know someday you’ll find
The other side
is not so high
If you stand on my shoulders

The second state line was crossed
You talked of war of love and loss A lone tear escaped your eye

You looked at me as if to say
You weren’t afraid but still ashamed
I took your hand and all that it implied

Someday seems far away
but I know in time you’ll find

The other side
Is not so high
If you stand on my shoulders

"They All Come Crashing Down"

In the time of fire and stone
There lived a legend of a song
And it rose above the shores
Votes were cast as the boats were drawn
And to a man they would go on
They all knew it was wrong
But as the sirens sang
They all came crashing down

High atop a golden throne
Built upon piles of bones
He looked down at all he owned
For generations the empire rose
Centuries rolled on and on
And man could never see it fall
But as the prophets did expound
They all came crashing down

We find ourselves at the pinnacle
A nation built on principle
A more perfect union never formed
Yet here we stand with a burning flag
Torn apart by an upper class
As they hoard more, more, more
Well it seems we may have found
That they all come crashing down

"Two"

Two is all it takes to start a dance
Two is all you need when you need romance
These are complicated times
Hold your breath and close your eyes
One time

Two is all it takes to mate a soul
Two is all you need to rock and roll
It may be hard to find
But I believe love can be blind
One time

You won’t get very far
If you’re never on the line
You find out who you are
When you take a chance to fly

Two is all it takes to start a fight
Two is all you need to set things right
It may be hard to find
But I believe love can be blind
One time

"Itsy Bitsy Spider"

The itsy-bitsy spider
Went up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again
