  • The push is always part of us
    And gravity's never a friend
    Deciding on who we can trust
    And finding our way to crescendo, to the unknown
    We'll never make it outside
    Lest we unlock the past and release
    The future that we've left to die
    For too long we've taken placebos

    But the unknown, is awakening

    Don't give up now, there's already so much at stake
    If Atlas falls, I'll rise up and carry us all the way

    No, we can never look back
    Return to the salt and the sea
    The quiet is only a trap
    And I will not take the placebos

    'Cause the unknown is awakening
    But I will crescendo

    Don't give up now, there's already so much at stake
    If Atlas falls, I'll rise up and carry us all the way
    It won't pull me down
    The weight of impossible days
    I'll stand tall
    I'll rise up and carry us all the way

    Keep moving forward now
    Keep your head above the clouds
    I'm right with you, I will lift you
    Just hold on

    Don't give up now, there's already so much at stake
    If Atlas falls, I'll rise up and carry us all the way
    It won't pull me down (moving forward now)
    The weight of impossible days (keep your head above the clouds)
    I'll stand tall (I'm right with you, I will lift you, just hold on)
    I'll rise up and carry us all the way

    I'll carry us all the way
    (Keep moving forward now) Writer/s: Brent Smith, David Hodges, Zac Maloy
