​Rise

This song is by Surveillance and appears on the album Oceania (2014).

(Stand up)
A sleeping giant stirring
Provoked to wake
The winter sky is burning
Pupils dilate
(Stand up)
We are forgotten children
Orphans of dreams
Enslaved by gilded lies
And torn between extremes

Pulses pound like drums
What have we become?
Blood spills from our veins
Cast off these binding chains

And if we fail, at least we tried
We can still hold our heads high
We are the strong, we are the just
Here's hoping Time remembers us

(Rise up)
Fury like raging waters
The fuse alight
Discord and gasoline
Illuminate the night
(Rise up)
Beyond the point of breaking
The fear dissolves
A situation
Only violence can resolve

Pulses pound like drums
What have we become?
Blood spills from our veins
Cast off these binding chains

And if we fail, at least we tried
We can still hold our heads high
We are the strong, we are the just
Here's hoping Time remembers us

(Stand down)
A mighty giant's fallen
Closing it's eyes
Sewing the seeds
For revolution to arise
(Stand down)
We may concede the battle
But not the war
We still remember what it is
We're fighting for

Pulses pound like drums
What have we become?
Blood spills from our veins
Cast off these binding chains
