When I Rise

Music & Lyrics by M. Zickler
Arranged by Rabbit Wilde

Where I lie
All the bones in my body are set into the ground
I take the train to the river of the city
With a shiver I will lay my body down

But when I rise
My bones will creak
My limbs will sleep no more
And when I rise
My feet will thunder as they hit the floor
And my eyes are tired
But my heart, it begs for more

It's been a long dirt road
And the fire shines behind me
Every wind and snow
Every morning, the coal that lights me

And at night
When the demons come around
I will wait
In the darkness till I've found the day

And when I rise
I'll be made a fool
And when I rise
I'll be made anew

Cause I've been taken for a ride
And the world I've ridden isn't mine

And when I rise
My bones will creak
My limbs will sleep no more
And when I rise
My feet will thunder as they hit the floor
And my eyes are tired
But my heart, it begs for more
