Rise

You can stand beside the madness like a falling piece
You can hold onto the sadness like a souvenir 
Just close your eyes and see your life
Like the air

You can tap into the strength you never knew you had
You can breathe until your faith no matter where you’re at
Just close your eyes and change your life
Like the air

Like the air you can 
Rise from the rubble with your mind you can hover
You can rise like the tide, like the heat in the summer
Yes I know there are those who will want to bring you down
But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud

The earth can pull you down with all its gravity
And the measure of your worth is sometimes hard to see
So just hold on, when the night is done
Like the sun

Like the air you can 
Rise from the rubble with your mind you can hover
You can rise like the tide, like the heat in the summer
Yes I know there are those who will want to bring you down
But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud

So even when your bones feel like weights
And its hard to lift a smile on your perfect face
You can still find a peaceful place
Close your eyes until you’re floating up in outer space
It’ll be alright, they’re just jealous of your highs
See they can knock you down, but

Like the air you can 
Rise from the rubble with your mind you can hover
You can rise like the tide, like the heat in the summer
Yes I know there are those who will want to bring you down
But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud
