The Dead Rise!

Updated: Aug 7, 2021

It is finally here. A new Dethrone song. It is called Raise the Dead and I will be available August the 4th 2021 in all streaming services. Yeah, we know we have been talking about it already last year, but these things take time. Especially when the last time we were recording was back in 1991. It’s a song for dead friends. The great artwork was made by Kari Jokinen.





RAISE THE DEAD LYRICS


Good morning sunshine

It´s time to feed

The profit making machine


You walk the streets with heavy feet

To watch the numbers in your screen

to make some old man rich

And life feels like nothing


This hell feeds your anxiety

Is validation all you need?

Ask your life-coach

reason for being


Now search that voice inside your head

face you fears, sorrow, dread

It´s time you threw indifference

out of window and...


Bang your head

Let´s raise the dead


Make you wretched soul scream so loud

That in echoes right in hell


Raise your voice

Bring the noise!


Throw your

Lifeless life into the wind

And choose to fight in trenches


Bang your head


Raise the dead


Hey dead, now rise!


Feel the fear, smell the air

Hear the call of a mighty dare

And rage against the dying of your soul


It´s the fear, It´s the air

It´s the call of a mighty dare

Now rage against the dying of your soul


So bang your head

Let´s raise the dead


Make you wretched soul scream so loud

That in echoes right in hell


Raise your voice

Bring the noise!


Throw your

Lifeless life into the wind

And choose to fight in trenches


Raise you fist

Don´t settle, resist


Make your life more than an empty shell

and face the dread instead
