Inspiration comes from everywhere, but some things hold a more powerful influence over me. This song took endless amounts of inspiration from Baasik and Black Gryph0n's "Another End". The original song is about the endless possiblities you can have if you spend it with the right people and how whatever of the many paths you choose is the right one if you do it together. This one is almost a precursor to that notion, being about having to either earn the right to walk those paths or to fight your way to them, through good and bad times, and never leaving your dreams behind for a second.

Lyrics:

When I first found the light,

It was too bright to see

The gates locked, I was left outside

Out on my own, no one but me

Now the game has changed

I'm taking up the lead

I'm looking forward, not breaking stride

My body's calm, my mind is at ease

To my right, my only hope

On my left, my last shattered dream

I'm told to leave it behind me

Though it's not as dead as it seems

Storming the front, you can't give up ground

Burning put is a fatal flaw

I've worked too hard to give up now

I've played the game, now I make the law

Losing my mind from trials ahead

Given gifts envied and feared

The apex is light-years away

The writing on the wall has become clear

I've seen them before

What they want is in their sight

It doesn't matter who you are

'Cause in the end you'll have to fight

I've come this far not breaking down

But now I realize

To ignore the past is a mistake

I'll take it and I'll learn to rise

The ones without the will

They get left behind

The choice isn't yours to make

It's just the way it was designed

Cut the lifelines connected to you

Jump off the top and let it begin

In danger lies the safe way out

The secrets to your life lie within

What you see often tells you lies

The memories burn like paper skies

I won't be stopped by a low remark

The fire behind is from my own spark

We've come this far not breaking down

But now you realize

To ignore out past is a mistake

Take it along-

    @Xplin Yes and no. I re-did the vocals in the beginning, which are absolute trash. At 2:36 , my friend Dylan takes over for the rest of the track. This is his youtube channel (link is only visible to registered users)

    I find it impossible for me to make a synth like that from the intro.

    Hi, i listened to Rise, and fiddled a bit with an attempt of a remix.

    I felt that everything in the whole track was "too high up", tried to ground it slightly with a base beat, little saxophone chord, and full out on mid register. (if you are not satisified with my remix attempt I can delete it, if you want me to)

    I adjusted the vocals in the first verse, did I make it any better or nah?

    I'm gonna fix the first verse of the vocals, because that seems to be the part that puts people off the most, and see how that goes. Give me a few hours at the most.
