about

Rise used to have a story and characters and events, etc. but the further we got down the road, it fell apart. It still sort of resembles a story. It has a beginning, a middle, a climax and a resolution. But it really just didn’t go as planned.

It has a strong sense of unrest. From the time we started writing it, we were disturbed by the world around us. So we wrote about that. It’s a struggle against the system, the status quo, the media, and the jarring lack of change in Washington. There’s revolution, vengeance, hatred, romance, woo-wee.

On the flip side, it also subtly challenges those who want change. If you pay attention you’ll hear the phrase “I can feel it” approximately 10 billion times on the album. Debating with emotion and feeling, rather than logic and reason is dangerous, but you see it a lot on both sides. Like in “51 Years“, the narrator is calling upon his followers’ feelings to launch a revolution. No matter how great the cause, going about it in the wrong way is more often than not, a bad decision.

Rise is a political album. There’s no doubting that. But we feel it’s subtle enough that you can ignore it if you want to. We’re a bunch of angsty kids fresh out of our teens and we know how annoying we can be.

We want to thank everyone who helped us make this record in any way. David Rohrer, gave us a kickstart into recording. We can confidently say, without him, the album would not be done. Thank you to Rory Jackson, Gentry Stayton, Tyler O’Riley, Nick Mooney, Kwaku Dakwa, Damian Rigby, and Sam Kubiak for helping us with chants, stomps, claps, “Die”s and “Burn”s. Double thanks to Gentry Stayton for also directing the music video for “Ghosts”. And a special thanks to Sunshine Cafe in Muncie, IN for being open 24/7. You kept giving when we needed it most.

Track Name: 33/12
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Des Moines International.
The local time is 12:33 PM.
The temperature is 33 degrees outside, and rising.
On behalf of the captain, crew, and myself,
I want to thank you for joining us on this trip from Dulles International.
And we look forward to seeing you onboard again in the near future.
Have a lovely afternoon.
Track Name: Rise
Infatuate!
I never knew you could be so cruel
But time has told

Intimidate!
That you are nothing but a purgurer
Deny what’s real

Infatuate!
Over your broken stipulations
Your time will come

Liberate!
All of your bullshit delegations
Release!

Terminate!
The wall of silence has been broken
Beware what comes

Decimate!
The haunting shadows have ascended
You’re out of time

Terminate!
Inhale the toxic lacerations
Just parish and die

Decimate!
Your foundations of disaster
Then rise!

I won’t just stand here and take your deceit
Now this is the hour that I can believe in
Something that’s different than what I’ve been told
Something that I know that you would abhor

This may be a system that’s rigged for elite
That’s set up for failure beneath their feet, but
Now is the time when we take back what’s ours
If you believe me, then take my hand

Just know your time will come
Look away!
Burning faster
Hold your breath and rise
But only time will tell
If we’re right!
Time is fleeting
Run

With no fate to guide us
We’ll set out to sea
Forging our own footsteps
Into eternity

In the heart of evil
We’ll lose sight of the end
Only to return forgotten
Having lost where we’ve been

It is not in this hour, nor in any other,
that we should shy away from uniting together,
and rising to the occasion.
My brothers and sisters, now more than ever,
we must fight back.

Stand up and face the music
Pages, we can’t look back now
Turning to our next chapter
Don’t fear them
Stand your ground and rise

You can hear them coming closer
Here come the wolves
I never said this would be easy
Track Name: 51 Years
For it is in the darkness, that we see the light before us.
It is in eternal desperation and hopelessness
that we remember what it was like to feel.
Together my friends, give me your hands. Let us fight.

Can you tell me
How we got here?
Can you show me how we
Lost our way?

This is the hour
Can you feel it?
I think it’s time to say we’ve
Had enough

Hey darling can you feel it?
The fury burning in us
Say, will you stand up too and tell me
Will you listen, tell me can you hear it?
The horrors in the air that
Form from the empty darkness
But let me show you something
Take a minute

You can watch it burn!
Darkness surrounds us
Burn away!
How can you just stand there and look away?
Stand aside!
Make me.

Crashing rain that falls below
Everything that we took for granted
Now will you take the sword when it comes your way?
Or will you fight another day?

I know it feels impossible
That we can fight the system
Let’s try again some day
But wait a minute you can hear it calling

Can’t you feel it
Surging through you?
You can’t hide
It’s in your blood

Don’t you try and run!
Fear leaves us hollow
Run away!
This is the moment don’t turn away
Turn back now!
No.

Darkness clouds the path again
But evil lies where the heroes falter
Let’s fight for something more than us
‘Cause once again it seems the time has come

Can you smell it in the air tonight?
Blood!
Yes.

Remember Selma…

Darkness envelopes the endless cycle
Greed and money take precedence over hunger
And slowly but surely, the margin widens
Until nothing is left
But them

This is the time where we will take a stand
51 years and it would seem that it’s time again
We will not watch as you just buy them off
May I remind you that We are the People

Darkness clouds the path ahead
But heroes rise when the evil’s silenced
Hand in hand we’ll make it through
Through fire and flood we will rise above
Stand with me just one more time
The day has come for the shadows have fallen
God, it seems, has turned his head
But hear us speak, let the Earth resound our call!

Rise up
Stand up
Make your move
Don’t just stand there watching
Fight for something
Take a stand
Don’t just let it slip away
Track Name: Strife
I’ll take the back seat last until you’ve passed
I’m going too fast that you can’t even see me
Momentum prevents them from taking control
So rise up now and stand with me

You wanna take it from me?
Just come and get some
You wanna fight?
Then we’ll go, just wanna warn ya
I won’t just stand here alone
I bring an army
You better fuckin’ believe
You’re gonna back down

Yeah

Hidin’ till you’re found
You’ll be burnin’ till you hit the ground
Tearin’ you down until nothing is left of you
Right now!
Take control of it
Right now!
Then burn it down

Don’t let ’em take control
Don’t let ’em take control

You wanna take it from me?
Just come and get some
I’m gonna fight till I’m dead
Just wanna warn ya
I’ll cut ya down to size
Do ya feel me?
Just lay your sword by your side
This is your last chance

Don’t let ’em take control
Don’t let ’em take control

You wanna take it from me?
Just come and get some
I’m gonna fight till I’m dead
Just wanna warn ya
I’ll cut ya down to size
Do ya feel me?
Just lay your sword by your side
This is your last chance

You wanna take it from me?
I’ll leave you jaded
Still wanna fight?
Then we’ll go, but I wanna warn ya
I won’t just stand here alone
I bring an army
Listen to what I say
You better stand down

You motherfucker I tried
To stop the violence
In all your pride you can’t see
That this is your fault
You’re like the setting sun on the horizon
You better fuckin’ believe
That this is over now

For even if we fail, even if we fall below the tide,
let us remember that only when we are on our backs,
when we are against the wall,
that is how we learn how to get back up again.
For when we crawl, only then do we know how to rise to our feet.
Track Name: Invictus
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Ghosts
In the night
You can hear them calling out
Into the depths of night
Till you can feel it burn within
They’re coming in closer now

They can sense that we are alone

Unholy prayer
Do ya think they once believed?
But I can tell that’s gone
Can you conceive of death?
They’ve proven it to me

Can you hear them call in the night?
Ghosts

Surrounded in darkness, swaddled in fear,
eclipsed in chaos, we are all one.
It is dark my friends; it is empty.
But we are strong. We are unstoppable.
We are indivisible.

(We can feel)
Look around, can’t you see?
(Pain and fear)
All the men burning
(You killed us all)
They fade away, without a sound
All of them dead
Track Name: Whispers
The voices scream inside my mind like they’re alive
And so it seems that I am losing my mind
Now watch it burn
The faith that once we though could save all of us
I’m standing beside you
Yet I know, I am gone

Faint whispers
Calling out from far in the distance
Fear, it takes control of me

Now! Woah!
Sometimes I watch and wonder baby!
How? Woah!
Whispers in the night!

Then paralyzed
The man that listened and denied
I cannot believe in you
They told me not to

Faint whispers
Calling out from far in the distance

What happens to us
now? Woah!
Sometimes I stop and wonder, baby!
How? Woah!
Step inside and see who’s listening
Can’t you see I’m questioning why?
Can’t you hear them?
Those whispers in the night

The midnight hour has tolled.
Their day has ended.
We must come together to claim this new one.
Come with me my friends.
Seize the day before us, before it slips away.

Hear us
Now! Woah!
Sometimes I watch and wonder, baby!
How? Woah!
Look inside and see who’s watching
Can’t you see I’m questioning you?
Can’t you see them?
Those faces in the night

I feel them
Fading out into the distance
Fear, now falls away from me

Hope glistens
(You know)
Now I see what I have become
(That I have gone away)
Is it too late to change?
(It’s too late)
Track Name: Broken
Further and further we throw ourselves
Deeper and deeper into the dark
Hour by hour we watch ourselves
Brighter and brighter we burn our souls

Engraving your name into my heart
Nailing the coffin tighter and stronger
By falling for you and condemning me
To a long healthy life of misery!

Did you ever feel so uncontrolled?
So out of mind? So out of your state?
Did you ever feel like it was real?
Like it was there? Just like I did?

The love was alive
The misled good intention
The unintended misconception
But it was so real…
So tell me why have we become so…

Broken and empty inside
We cast ourselves into the fire
Broken and wondering
Why we watch each other fade away
Just open your eyes and see…
Just listen to your heart stop!
Broken inside! Oh!

Thought after of thought of what could have been
Lie after lie unspoken but understood
Hatred and hatred of where we were
Night after night of choking on tears

By coming to me you sealed your fate
A lifetime of pain and suffering
I’m not like the rest, I’ll tear you down
‘Cause I’m no good for you and I’m no good for me

Did you ever feel so left alone?
So on your own? Like I was never even there?
Did you ever feel my promised love?
Did it ever seem like I never even cared?

Did love come to life?
The misread implications
Made everything dissipate
But it was so real
So tell me how did we become so…

Broken and empty inside
We cast ourselves into the fire
Broken and wondering
Why we watch each other fade away
Just open your eyes and see…
Just listen to your heart stop!
Broken inside! Oh!

Broken inside
And barely alive
So questioning why
Our hearts divide

Two from the one
Separated and done
The last thing to say is goodbye
So goodbye!

When did we become two parts of the one?
And when did we become too diverse for our own good?
How do we return to the way that we were?
Before our minds got a hold of desire?
Can we fix what’s…

Broken and empty inside
We cast our souls into the fire
Broken and wondering
Why we watch each other fade away
Just open your eyes and see…
Just listen to your heart stop!
Broken inside! Oh!

Let’s go!

Fuck

Watch your step.
Track Name: Nocturne No. 1 in B Minor
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Goodbye
No one understands
Because no one feels what you feel
No one can comprehend
Because no one knows what you know

You see the world in a different light
One that’s short and fading
You can see this world has no more to offer
This you know

You say…
I am here to claim the darkness
I am here to say goodbye

They chose not to listen to you
No matter loud you screamed inside
Emptiness consumes what’s left
Your choice is made

You say…
I am here to claim the darkness
I concede my only fight
I invoke the empty silence
I am here to say goodbye

My time is running out
Growing shorter still

I reveal my unfulfillment
I bear witness to the end
I indulge the hour of mercy
Raise the angels, fade to black
Goodbye
Track Name: Glory
Go!

Drop it!

We have returned
Time to reclaim what’s ours
Coup de main!

This is the hour that we take them down
We came to conquer
And show them we were not mistaken
And not forgotten
We need to show them we can take them
It’s been 52 years
We need to prove that we can make them bleed

For the fallen
We will avenge

This is the time for justice in the crudest form
Darkness shall cast a shadow on everything but
All that you love has now fallen below

Take them down!

And bring them down to our level
We need to show them
We need to show them what it’s like here
It’s not so pleasant
It’s not so nice when you’re a failure
Maybe then they’ll know
It’s not so nice when you’re oppressed

Give me your hand
Then bring me your sword

Blind but now we see that you were cheating us
Here comes the revolution you feared you’d see but
What was above has now fallen below

Bringers of death
Now is your time

We are alone by blood, but here we’re all the same
Cast out and torn apart by the system you made
The light is failing
But I can feel it
The change is coming
The sun is rising
The smoke is climbing
Then out of silence
The screams go crying
On the horizon
Cities of death have now fallen below

Coup de main!
Track Name: Don't Leave
Fuck

I’m a verbal defecation
A walking contradiction
I’m nothing more than a self-made liar

I feed upon myself
Indulging no one else
I look within for internal satisfaction

You wish I was perfect in every way
How it hurts when you realize my true intention

But take a look at yourself
You’re the one going fucking insane

In all my life
I’ve never had such contempt or hate
In all my life
I’ve never been so fucked up
In all my life
I’ve never felt so unrestrained
So above and beyond you
And justified in every way

Neumatic
Neurotic
Sympathetic
Psychotic
I’m an overrated psychopath wallowed in filth
I’m comin’ at ya

2

You can’t just expect me to ignore all this
To just pack up and move on?
You can’t just expect me to be okay with it
You can’t expect me to get the fuck over it

But I was wrong
I was wrong
You were right
I…

I was wrong
I was wrong
I was wrong
You were right!
I…
Track Name: Stay With Me
I watch you fall
And pick up the pieces
I’ll sit here and watch
The view from up here is so much better

I wanna hate you
For what you put me through
I want your selfish heart that keeps you alive
But I just can’t

The hate that seethes through you
Only empowers me
To rise above the clouds
And reach for the stars

But every single time
I try to learn to fly
You clip my wings and keep me
From breaking free

Breathe soft but never speak it
It’s much too hard to believe
That it’s somehow symbiotic
That you’re still needing me

But after all this time
You’re still in debt to me
Two serpents interwoven
And I just want to unweave

It’s just too hard to see
That somehow now you’re like no one ever
Meant you to be
And you realize now in the end
You’re nothing without me
You’re far too afraid
To push on with the fray
So stay away

You took my world from me
Through all your lies and deceit
You pinned it all on me
But I will not concede

I gave you 4 whole years
Can I have the next four in peace?
Your presence is suffocating
Why can’t you let me breathe?

It’s just too hard to see
That somehow now you’re like no one ever
Meant you to be
And you realize now in the end
You’re nothing without me
You’re far too afraid
To put on this charade
So please just stay with me

Infatuate.
Then intimidate your only virtue
With your overbearing, under-caring,
Without erring, staring glare
I cannot, will not, shall not,
Could not, and would not show for you
The love, concern, intrigue and care
That you’re asking for
But…

I never wanted this
I know you never asked for this
But if you really wanna know
What I really wanna show
Just take a step back and listen close

You’re a dominating, fear-instating,
Manipulating asshole
A judgement-based, two-faced
Total waste fuckboy
Nothing but a waste of time
For me to even recognize
Feed your self indulgence
With your personal infatuation

Die, die, die, die
They chant for you ’cause they want no more of you
Die, die, die, die
You see that? Maybe you should just-

Burn, burn, burn, burn
Like a conjurer of the dark arts
Burn, burn
Burn at the stake
Like St. Joan of Arc

You wanna start a fight? I’ll wage a war
I’m the scariest thing since Mike Myers, bitch
Sit. Down.

Fucking psychopathic cunt
You look around you, realize no one’s there
I still don’t give a fuck about your goddamn problems
If you wanted a yard, you shouldn’t have stolen the mile

Go kick your ball around
It’s better this way
To leave me shattered and broken
But still in one piece

You stole my friend
And broke his heart in two
Yet you’re still wondering why I want you dead?
Fuck off

It’s just too hard to see
That somehow now you’re like no one ever
Meant you to be
And you realize now in the end
You’re nothing without me

It’s just too hard to see
That somehow now you’re like no one ever
Meant you to be
And you realize now in the end
You’re nothing without me
You’re far too afraid
To run away
So please just stay with me
Track Name: Until the End
(Looking right at you!)
After all, how can you say I gave up on you?
After all of the shit you gave me
I will not subside
I will be here till the end
This I can say with some truth
That I could never give up on you
Even if I tried
I will be there till the end

Do not fear, for I am beside you.
I am with you every day in this fight.
For even when I have fallen, I am within you.
I am the spirit that breathes with you.
For I am not gone, I am still here,
and I will be always.
Track Name: Faux Pas
So do not give up hope.
Do not give into the fear of being alone.
Darkness will always be there.
But you must be the light that prevails.
So go now.
Rise.
For you have spent too long in the dark.

You’ll see us standing in the pyre below
That you put us through
From the pits of hell you can see them all
Staring back at you

Won’t catch us drowning our sorrows
In the night bleeding
We’ll bathe in showers of misery
Look in the mirror

In time, you’ll finally come to see
The very thing you swore to not be

And now you’ll witness the fateful end
To your empire
And then you’ll wonder just what has become
Of your followers

They’d sooner die than adhere to you
And you can believe it
The age of the mortals has ended
What has become of you?

Now you’ll see what you’ve become
The one who failed and then succumbed
You lived in darkness you failed to perceive
But now you can see yourself on the big screen

You left us here all alone
With no remorse
You left us all there in the dark
But now you can see yourself
Be torn apart
You’ll slowly fade until you’re gone

Just take a breath and relax
We’ll take you through show the way
You can trust us
LIES

Stand aside
Leave us alone
You have failed
Can’t you see?

Can you tell me
How we got here?
Can you show me how we
Lost our way?

Welcome to Washington
