My cover of Rise Up by Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket, Works Progress Administration)



My cover of Rise Up by Glen Phillips
(Toad the Wet Sprocket, Works Progress Administration)
Love the lyrics:

Rise Up

You seek an end to the questions
A ladder to the sky
A children's dream where we never die

There is a fog in the canyon
A vapor in the keep
Lulling us gently into sleep

And we will not wake ever
Unless we rise up early
Rise up early

They cast your brother as a demon
Your lover as a whore
All manner of lies justify our wars

They sell the water in the well now
The stars in the sky
There's nothing so sacred that we won't buy

And it will not change ever
Unless we rise up early
Rise up early

Rise up, rise up

There is a silence in the bedroom
A rustle in the hall
In the shadow of a love that became a wall

And it will not fall ever
