“Rise”came out in 2008.
I downloaded it via a cyber locker like Rapidshare or MegaUpload.
The way cyber lockers worked was;
- a normal blog site would put up links to the music.
- The links would refer you to the cyber locker website.
- You would wait 90 seconds or less for the ads to play and the download link would be made available to you.
- Eventually the U.S government via the sponsorships of the RIAA and MPAA went after these cloud storage cyber locker sites.
Remember Kim Dotcom from MegaUpload. His house was raided like he was a terrorist in the morning and all because he provided a service to people to store files in the cloud.
A lot of people used these sites to store their photos or work documents and they lost it all when the US Government went after these sites and took possession of their servers.
Anyway, going back to “Rise”. I liked it, so I purchased it. And the below is from a review a did a while back.
You wanna try me you might be the one who goes down
I’ve had it up to here with your rule
You’re such a two face it’s too late to take back those words
We have all dealt with people like this. One thing life has taught me is nothing is forever, and that means relationships.
I can’t believe I finally see the enemy in you
Yes, that best friend, might scheme and lie. Yes, that great love, might scheme and lie.
Eventually all the lies come down like a house of cards and those people you trusted suddenly become untrustworthy. And it’s hard to take when it first happens. There is anger, a feeling of being wronged and disbelief that it’s happened for so long.
But, humans are resilient and we rise again, better and stronger than before.
We are the voice of our lives,
But no one’s listening.
Eventually people will listen. It just takes time, effort and commitment. We give up too easily.
And how long, how long,
Can I fake this?
How long can we really fake our lives?
We have so many tools at our disposal to connect with people and we remain even more isolated.
Stand the fuck up and rise
I’m not afraid
It’s pretty simple. Stand up, don’t be afraid. Easier said than done, because of what could come after. Life is always a struggle. People in power versus the ones who work for them. Some abuse the power they have and others are more utopian.
I can’t fake the way I feel inside
Every one of those eyes judging me
It’s funny how things change
I redefine how messed up this life can really be
There was a time when every action and every word that came from me was so thought out because I didn’t want to be judged or questioned for my actions/words. As I got older, I ceased to care about those kind of social arrangements. Life is too short for me to care and there are too many other things I care more about now.
There’s history there and no one wants to let go, even though it’s over. The thought of starting over again is too frightening. So you hold on to each other, playing games, blaming each other even more and eventually you both stop trying to save what can’t be saved anymore. So you let go.
