"Rise Inside" as written by and Mike D'antonio Jesse Leach....
Rise inside
Free your mind
Raise your fist
To signify
We stand in defiance
Of hatred and deception
If I stand alone
I will fight for you

The time has come to
Make a difference
Why have we forsaken love
The time has come to
Raise our voices
So rise up and fight with me

Embrace what we have
It might be the last time
In this life we will rise
If we find the strength to unify

Embrace what we have
It might be the last time
In this life we will rise
If we find the strength to unify

Hatred is a weakness
You become the victim

I believe love will overcome

Time has come to
Make a difference
Why have we forsaken one another
The time has come to
Raise our voices
So rise up and fight with me

The time has come
To rise inside

    General CommentJesse Leach: "Rise Inside" is really the Killswitch Engage Anthem. It tells people that no matter who you are in your life, I'm here for a reason and I'm doing the best I can to do that. We really need to embrace love and not forsake each other as human beings and realize that we are all one deep down inside. Believe it or not, I'm willing to stand up and speak my mind and tell them how I feel about things."

    General CommentI love this song and I first saw this band at a local night club with Kittie and Kritickill and Shadows Fall, and afterwards I immediately went and bought this CD it kicks ass and since I have tried and tried and tried to start my own band, this group has really inspired me... Oh and I'm still looking for a Bass and Drummer if there is any one out there looking for a Singer and Guitar, lead and rhythm, I've got both Put in your applications here

    General CommentThis song is easily Killswitches best song. It's a shame Jesse left because Howard just doesn't have the right sound to replace him. They should have renamed the band and started anew. It would have made it better for me. The guitars and drums can always sound the same but a singer is different.
