lyrics

They say I came with arms outstretched
One from North, the other West
Sudden jolts to my surprise
Woke the fire behind these eyes

Rise Up, Rise Up

Though you gave me life
Lives don’t sail as planned
I’d urge you understand
Manners do not maketh the man
Manners did not maketh this man

And now, in starlight only can I flee
The evils of the day
From those who seek to shatter
Innocence with glee
Only blind men ever truly see
And vows you take upon the morning light
Mock the effort of our history
One thousand crooked stitches
Tracked upon my heart
A mirror would you make me

Rise Up, Rise Up


Though you gave me life
Lives don’t sail as planned
I’d urge you understand
Manners do not maketh the man
Manners do not maketh...

Look at the way they betray just on hearsay
Blood of your blood runs cold
And they look the other way
If you take from my table, I'll take from your bleeding heart
And together we will freeze my love, on our knees
Cover up your eyes
We return as one

Though you gave me life
Lives don’t sail as planned
I know you understand
I’d urge you understand

Rise Up, Rise Up
Rise Up, Rise Up
Rise Up
Rise Up
