This song is about dealing with mental health struggles and finding strength in whatever way is best for you to be able beat it, or at least live with it. Let's not let it defeat us. I will rise, and stand my ground.


Why can't you stay here?
Save me from my despair
Grudge comes crawling back
Stare me down
Struck by the Gloomhammer

Punished by my own dark mind
Growing darkness from behind
Stay here and keep me sane
Help me now
Struck by the Gloomhammer

This fight you'll lose
Make no mistake
I was your strength
But now you'll break
You're all alone
You're nothing now
I'll tear you down
That is my vow

The storm is drawing you in
Take my hand
It will never let you leave
Take my hand

Find strength within the disorder
Grab faith from deep within
Crawl through the chaos and the noise
Mania has seeped to far
Define the light that paves the way
Push back and take control
Revive the hope inside
The strength will rise

I will wipe away the tears
I will get back on my feet
Nothing else can keep my down
I will rise and stand my ground

A cloud has lifted from my mind
A fever left my soul
The misery that filled my life
Now I can let it go

Strength pumping through my veins
Truce within myself
Shedding the lies that conquered me
Rising up
Breaking the Gloomhammer

See life for what it is
Learn to deal with it
Chance to live again
Now I am
Breaking the Gloomhammer
