As I Rise – Riptide lyrics

While I turned my eyes to the sea
We don't just swallow and believe
We are the uncrowned kings of the world to anyone
Now gather round so we can burn it down

My eyes are sore from these
Night lights - almost going blind
Breathe away heavy
My new life begins
I can see
I was wrong
I can change
We are the renegades!

And I let go
Of all I am
To become who I should be
And I let go
Of all that's been
With newborn eyes I see

Face off my allies
You are agonized alive
In a narcotized and moribund culture
Skinless we are
One step further
Nightbound we are alike
Fear nothing but fear
Prove the doubters wrong
Chances are like worlds
We only got this one
We buried all our regrets
Our beliefs must be
Greater than our disgust

If you wanted to do
Something sincere
Something true and pure
It had to be
Done all along
Something to do for sure

"It's a disease - Nobody thinks or feels or cares anymore
Nobody gets excited or believes in anything
Except their own comfortable little god damn mediocrity"
