LYRICS:

I can feel the earth humming,
You could hear the ground drumming,
Somethings coming,
by the way the bees are buzzing,
Open the box thats thumping,
It’s time to pull our hearts apart and jump in,
Amazed at the place we’ve been stuck in,
Change of the pace in the bass, I’m taking the plunge then,
My minds been lying, feeling safe, locked up in this cage,
The storm is brewing, the weather man can never see the rage,
Hidden in the rain,
Underneath the pain
is a message in a bottle
Open the bottle in the box, read the name, whatya got?
Model person better stand up, ya it’s past time to talk
Stuck between this hard place and a rock,
Grab your rod,
Don;t walk it’s time to jog,
Feeling like we’ve been through the ringer like a mop
'ow we’re here breaking the door down, there’s no reason to freakin' knock
Busting through these walls block by block
Flip the switch, Rip the thermostat nob, make it hot, show 'em what we got

From the ashes we rise up (Ya)
and see the world with a different view
(Different view!
Break through the lies
and get to the truth)
When we get burned then we wise up
(Dealt with the burn how?
Let it burn down! And
Let the Phoenix out)
We begin, we're broken in
And now we're breaking through

They just changed the channel
Think they won a battle
Cuz they switched the station (what?)
Snakes stay rattled but (ha)
on our screens the futures still playing,
So they managed to leave us damaged,
Smacked us with a planet, like iron man and handed us beef, (ya)
But this is the end game, so thank you for the sandwich, it’s time for us to meet(meat), (come on)
We’re past the delegations,
We know we can’t agree (truth)
We’ve been left in isolation
Like a 512k, you’ve been obsolete (deleted)
We’re gonna Macintosh you straight into the trash, open circuits, make us free
Welcome to the circus where it’s great to be a freak, (woah)
Emerging from the deep, (ya)
Stand up and speak (preach)
The krakens about to breach from the bottle in the sea (bottle?)
The bottle that was in the box on the ship, locked up in a safe, we’ve never been given the key (oh)
Punching through bricks till our knuckles bleed
Show 'em what we got till the day that they believe
Breaking it open like a chest cavity now our hearts breath (we can breath)

From the ashes we rise up (Ya)
and see the world with a different view
(Different view!
Break through the lies
and get to the truth)
When we get burned then we wise up
(Dealt with the burn how?
Let it burn down! And
Let the Phoenix out)
We begin, we're broken in
And now we're breaking through

Rise
Ya
Rise

Atlas, at last we can drop the world off our hump
Broken our backs, we’ve carried a ton no sunblock, even though we tried to fight the sun, they burned us numb
Showing the scum
Now we’ve won
The revolt is done
Now we’ve won
The revolt is done

What you, what you, what you
What you got?

From the ashes we rise up (Ya)
and see the world with a different view
(Different view!
Break through the lies
and get to the truth)
When we get burned then we wise up
(Dealt with the burn how?
Let it burn down! And
Let the Phoenix out)
We begin, we're broken in
And now we're breaking through
