  • I won't just survive
    Oh, you will see me thrive
    Can't write my story
    I'm beyond the archetype
    I won't just conform
    No matter how you shake my core
    'Cause my roots, they run deep, oh

    Oh, ye of so little faith
    Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
    Victory is in my veins
    I know it, I know it
    And I will not negotiate
    I'll fight it, I'll fight it
    I will transform

    When, when the fire's at my feet again
    And the vultures all start circling
    They're whispering, you're out of time
    But still, I rise
    This is no mistake, no accident
    When you think the final nail is in, think again
    Don't be surprised, I will still rise

    I must stay conscious
    Through the madness and chaos
    So I call on my angels
    They say

    Oh, ye of so little faith
    Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
    Victory is in your veins
    You know it, you know it
    And you will not negotiate
    Just fight it, just fight it
    And be transformed

    'Cause when, when the fire's at my feet again
    And the vultures all start circling
    They're whispering, you're out of time
    But still, I rise
    This is no mistake, no accident
    When you think the final nail is in, think again
    Don't be surprised, I will still rise

    Don't doubt it, don't doubt
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    You know it, you know it
    Still rise
    Just fight it, just fight it
    Don't be surprised, I will still rise Writer/s: Ali Payami, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, Max Martin, Savan Harish Kotecha

  • Robert from Kintore OntInteresting. Back then he, my handler, wanted a song for the Olympics. I was predisposed. All I could think about was the future God will rise. Slave of slaves. We will see how that works out. Glad it's helped others in the mean time. Royalties would have helped. Poseidon.
