Rise
© Nat Colten

Rise.
You’ve got to rise up
over the hurt,
over distrust.
Side.
Whose are you on?
Somewhere in between
the right or the wrong?
Fly.
You’ve got to fly on
over the hurt,
over distrust
because these words are all weighted.
These words are all wrong.

Coming home everything seems the same.
Coming home and the winds started to change.
And my mind is to blame
Because I’ve been thinking out loud
for a while now and I’ve started to see
that my world is a figment of me.

So you’ve got to reach out.
Reach out far
beyond what you know
or who you think you are.
You’ve got to lift up
or you’ll get pulled down
by the shit that’s been leaching
in to our sacred ground.
You’ve got to give up
that act that you’re playing.
These games are contagious
and it just don’t add up.

Rise up again
you’ve got to rise over,
over it all,
because this is freedom for the soul.
Now that we’re a little bit older,
a couple seconds wiser,
in a minute we’ll conspire
about the way we want to change.
Change is gonna come.
The question is when it will.

And if a change is gonna come,
you’ve got to look in the mirror
and start to question your own will.

You’ve got to remain
and live through the pain
because everything,
everything is gonna change.

Now rise.
You’ve got to rise up.
over the hurt,
over distrust.
Side.
Whose are you on?
Somewhere in between
the right or the wrong?
Fly.
You’ve got to fly on
over the hurt,
over distrust
because these words are all weighted.
These words are all wrong.
