Lay your pretty head down on my shoulder
You don’t have to worry anymore
This old world is cold and getting colder
And I know how to lock and load the door

I’m strong enough to hold you through the winter
Mean enough to stare your demons down
The hard times put the shine into the diamond
I won’t let that keep us in the ground

I'm a riser
I'm a get off of the ground, old running hider
Push and comes to shove
Hey and I'm a fighter
Darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
But get out aliver, out of the fire
Survivor

IF you we ain't got no money I can make it
I ain't afraid of working to the bone
When I don’t know what I do and I can fake it
Ya, I'll pray to jesus rolls away that stone

I'm a riser
I'm a get off of the ground, old running hider
Push and comes to shove
Hey and I'm a fighter
Ya darkness comes to town, I’m a lighter
Get out aliver, of the fire, survivor

I'm a trier
I'm a get down low so I can lift you higher
An army couldn’t keep down my desire
Ya

I'm a riser
I'm a get off of the ground, old running hider
Push and comes to shove
Baby I'm a fighter
Ya darkness comes to town, I’m a lighter
Get out aliver, of the fire, survivor

I’m a riser
I’m a riser
I’m a riser
I’m a riser

    I like pizza. Like I really love pizza with a burning passion. Pepperoni, sausage, or supreme. I can eat the heck out of all those types of pizza. Listening to riser makes me want to put on my party pants, drive my butt to dominoes and get me a freaking pizza if you know what I mean. Like a nice cheese pizza, or pepperoni pizza all to myself. No sharing, just me, a plate, parmesan cheese, and a bottle of coke. That's the kind of pizza I love and no one can ever take that from me. I'm a riser, get off the bed old run and buyer, push open the door, hey I'm a buyer.
