about

We all have a calling in life, it is time we realize our potential, we must rise to realize our greatest selves. Educate the people about the true costs of war in all of its forms. Rise is a resistance anthem, featuring fellow veteran (Army) Guy Ron Solero Vanterpool, highlighting the album's overall theme of peace and resistance.

lyrics

Verse 1
Guy Ron Solero Vanterpool
Chorus 2x
I rise to the call stand tall for the occasion
Rise above the fall this man will be amazing
It's not one above all above all are celebrating
So let's rise beyond all the fear and hating
Verse 2
I was taught never lay down let em take my life/
We leave no man behind never run from a fight/
In the same breath I teach my son it's wrong to fight/
Respect authority but never let em dim your lights/
Know your rights fight when they're infringed upon/
Study history and cite facts carry the baton/
For ancestors and progeny I leave imprints in wax/
Archived and timeless there's a war going on/
Nonviolence ain't practiced outside on your block/
For the violence we practice with the parry and block/
Societies violence from becoming a stumbling block/
Over cycles of violence that land you in a cell block/
Or a box know yourself that's the first lesson/
Your enemies keep you from reaching your blessings/
They might be your own family or national pride/
Fear and courage are the same coin opposite sides
Chorus 2x
I rise to the call stand tall for the occasion
Rise above the fall this man will be amazing
It's not one above all above all are celebrating
So let's rise beyond all the fear and hating
Verse 3
The horrors of global war the saga of dominion/
Of man over man in his fight over religions/
Over women or the children over land all the killing/
Of the villains is dwarfed by the number of civilian/
Lives lost collateral damage they name the cost/
Impersonal titles help dehumanize the loss/
So we protest wars but keep supporting their cost/
Our tax revenue goes to the war machine boss/
On his gilded horse expensive suit and tie/
Blood money filled briefcase legal at his side/
With the eagle on his side so much evil in his eye/
He cannot see that Palestine suffers apartheid/
So I ride for the freedom of Gaza to this beat/
Uprise on the legions for a peaceful defeat/
My allegiance worn proudly never discreet/
It's a badge of honor to be with Veterans For Peace
Chorus 2x
I rise to the call stand tall for the occasion
Rise above the fall this man will be amazing
It's not one above all above all are celebrating
So let's rise beyond all the fear and hating
