"Raise The Dead" as written by and Alexander Greenwald....
Go on and pull yourself up
We climb, we climb, we climb, we climb
Down there they get you, down there
Again and again, forever and ever
Go on and give it a tug
Go on, pull up, I know it's tough
But down there it's deeper than deep
That hole is so steep
And things are heavier

Hear it now, the night is calling us
Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
Tonight, tonight, tonight
we raise the dead!

The dark is plaguing our hearts
Pumping through us and collecting in our deepest parts
Well down there it's dripping like tar
And it's stuck to your arms
And it's sticking to you too long
The time is higher than high
Something lurking in your shadow that keeps trying to hide
Oh no, want it alive
To get out, to get out, to get out of your insides

Hear it now the night is calling us
Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
Tonight, tonight, tonight
we raise the dead!

Go on and pull yourself up, up, up
Go on, pull up, I know it's tough
But down there they get you, down there
Again and again
Forever and ever
Hear it now, the night is calling us
Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
Tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight
we raise the dead!

    General CommentGo on and pull yourself up
    We climb, we climb, we climb, we climb
    Down there they get you, down there
    Again and again, forever and ever
    Go on and give it a tug
    Go on, pull up, I know it's tough
    But down there it's deeper than deep
    That hole is so steep
    And things are heavier

    Hear it now, the night is calling us
    Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    we raise the dead!

    The dark is plaguing our hearts
    Pumping through us and collecting in our deepest parts
    Well down there it's dripping like tar
    And it's stuck to your arms
    And it's sticking to you too long
    The time is higher than high
    Something lurking in your shadows and it's trying to hide
    Oh no, we want it alive
    Trick it out, trick it out, trick it out of your insides

    Hear it now the night is calling us
    Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    we RAISE THE DEAD!

    All our friends
    Have met their ends
    And father demons
    Tonight

    Go on and pull yourself up, up, up
    Go on, pull up, I know it's tough
    But down there they get you, down there
    Again and again
    Forver and ever
    Hear it now, the night is calling us
    Wave your hands and summon the spirits up
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    we raise the dead!

    We're all together now
    We're all together now

    General CommentAlso, Jeff says this about the song "Raise the Dead was a song that Alex wrote about halfway
    through the recording process that the band immediately embraced. It felt like a call to arms
    when we needed it the most. I think we were a little lost and this song united us and brought focus to the album.

    General CommentI think this song is about reviving their careers (although they never really disappeared) and reminding them that they have to be united, as a band and as friends.
