Arise

Album: Memento Mori (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Lacey Mosley has this to say in an interview with New Release Tuesday: "There's a song on the album, called 'Arise,' which sums up the message we want people to walk away with. We want them to come away feeling empowered to arise and be all that they were meant to be, so that they can ultimately fulfill their purpose. The lyrics say, 'Arise and be all that you dream,' but I believe most people have a purpose for their lives that far exceeds any dream they could ever have. Even on our self-titled record it says that our lives should exceed all that we can dream, and that's how I feel when I'm singing 'Arise.' I believe there's a purpose for your life that only you were meant to fulfill. So our prayer, for anyone who listens to the message on the record, is that they would fulfill their purpose and answer the highest calling for their lives." >>
