Wake the ones and rise tonight
Fallen souls we shine so bright
Rise now and ever
Forgotten memories
No one can touch us

    Their shortest songs, and one of my favorites =) it gives me a vibe no other song can give; I mean, the starting bass drum and bass altogether is just fantastic, and Matt's vocals are just... wow. And I love that little scream he does on 0:45... I think the second is accurate :P Anyways, awesome song. It's sort of like an intro to the whole Waking The Fallen album, and I think that almost all the songs on that album are related to this specific song :P Love it nonetheless, though.

    The dead rise (wake the ones and rise tonight). Spirits of sinners (fallen souls) stand out above everything else. They awaken and will stay awake forever, bringing back the forgotten memories of those who were lost. Because they are dead, there is not a single person who can place them back into their graves (no one can touch us).
