Arise! Arise! 

O' my mouth is a desert valley

And a blue hand is clasped around my throat, 

I'm sorry mother, for I cannot speak; 

I must face this alone! 


Arise! Arise! 

O' swoon me summer month

And the blessings you hold inside, 

Converge my sight, so I cannot look back; 

Let me feel him! 


Arise! Arise! 

Embers of ash are blowing in my stomach

The wind is natures breath, I am apart, 

Cells quake with burning wood, a new fire has been lit; 

So let me burn! 


Arise! Arise! 

O' August has touched me

And I have been possessed by the spirit of a poet, 

A revolution is happening inside; 

I shall not resist, for I am a man!


Arise! Arise! Arise! Arise!
