dear eddie,
hi. i owned “ten” when i was in high school. i mostly just liked “alive.” but thanks for writing “rise,” which i’ve now listened to 17 times today. i am posting the lyrics although they don’t look as elegant without the mandolin sound accompanying them and i might see them in 2 days or 2 months and be like, [uncomfortable].
your pal,


Such is the way of the world
You can never know
Just where to put all your faith
And how will it grow

Gonna rise up
Burning back holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold

Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
And suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole
