Celldweller - Purified Lyrics

You can see we're alive
You didn't think we'd survive
From the hills and the ground
We've risen from the sound
Through the flames, Purified

Raise your hands to the sky
Raise your hands to -

Purified [x2]

You can see we're alive
You didn't think we'd survive
From the hills and the ground
We've risen from the sound
Through the flames, Purified

Raise your hands to the sky
Raise your hands to the sky [x2]

  14. MrBowser1989

    I'm not a big fan of electronic stuff because you hear it every freaking day,but klayton always hits the point to make it sound good.

    I like skrillex and EDM STYLE but ROCK is my favorite ! WOOW THIS IS ERM(ElectroRockMusic )style and i like too
    I think Skrillex and Celldweller are like brothers, only differ with Electro dance music and the other with Electro rock music
    Celldweller > Skrillex
    Sorry quickly tapped.


    skrillix is good
    cellwelder is goldlike level
    plus most of skrillix songs aren't good only efew while 90% of cellwelder music is just amazing

    +Arash-Hijun Ihmeki Just noticed that the back and side of the hair looks different than Katze's hair :P But it looks pretty similar on the front, also cause of the red colour that it reminded me of that hair :P I dunno what it's called but it looks pretty awesome :)

    Jimu D

    +Udens Zirnis sickness?:S sorry, you've lost me... :S


    @Jimu D Ok, let me rephraze that. What is 'Katze'? I am tto lazy to google that/

  43. Zamalko 96

    Celldweller 4 Ever ! 

    I love him :*

  44. The Revolutionist

    Personally, my favourite Celldweller album is his debut from 2003. But I love the cinematic elements in his newer releases. This song is a perfect example of those cinematic elements, it just gives music a more epic feel!

  45. BrotherAlexander40k

    This is one of my favorite songs he's done.  I have a lot of favorites when it comes to Celldweller.

  46. PRIS3 Conspiracies

    Celldweller outweighs Skrillex. I had to listen to his mouse-voice sh*t all day everywhere like my friends' houses or studios for workout. I can say, Celldweller has the key to making Music much better, and Skrillex's wubwub, lfo, wow, woah So-called "Music" is just major trash. I do love dubstep, but the REAL Dubstep drops like Celldweller, Excision, and Downlink are just the madman's bass drops. Celldweller is the alternative artist to the roads of Electronic Rock Masters, and so is the same with Blue Stahli, Skylar Cahn, Excision and SeamlessR. I love Electric, Neon Rock, Nu Metal, Heavy Metal, Pop, Dubstep, Hard Rock, Punk-Rock, Alternative Rock, Orchestral Rock, and Metalcore. Celldweller's new album, AKA End of an Empire, is a perfect blend of Electronic Rock, Nu Metal, Rock, Pop, Drum and Bass, and Alternative Metal, and Soundtrack for the Voices in My head Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are just pure perfection! Skylar Cahn makes Alt Rock, Movie Soundtracks, Dubstep, Metal, Choir-Orchestra STs, and Excision makes the perfect drops of Metalstep, Rockstep, Drum and Bass, and Electro. I personally like all these artists myself, but I must say that my favorite album of Celldweller is "Wish Upon a Blackstar."
    When I was younger, I loved Skrillex and Fox Stevenson, I loved their wub wub drops and Skrillex's stuff, but as I got older, I just realized that I lost my taste for the two artiss. I LOVE Metallica, Ratt, Asking Alexandria, Crown the Empire, Linkin Park, Skylar Cahn, and Excision. I am a music composer myself, as contributing to my rock-music style. I make electro music too. I make a couple of videos with friends, with their voices and characters put into them as well. Skrillex is still an 'every-now-again' artist, and I will never lose my taste for metal and rock. Empyrean, Elara, and the Sentinel are my favorites by Klayton, and I like some other songs as well. I love creepypastas, animating, music-production, action movies, and CGI, and I will most likely be able to do animation-profession jobs one day. I have all 24 albums by Celldweller, and I have many albums by other artists. If anyone that loves Skrillex or likes to complain about dubstep being better than other music, then I won't bother to respond. I respect the musicianship of Excision, Swoon, Fonik, and those other artists, but the glitching voices just go over my taste of that stuff.


    It's interesting that you say all these things. I'm sure you've heard the 4 original tracks on SftViMH, Vol. 3. and I honestly categorize those 4 songs as "cinematic dubstep". I don't know if that's a thing, but it seems to be what it is to me (this could be true for some tracks on Vol 1 and 2) and because it's REALLY hard for me to find similar material to those songs, I just hold Klayton up on a very high pedestal because no one else seems to be doing what he is doing.

    He's got the sick beats, he's got da droppin' of da bass, he's got the emotion and the feeling. I get goosebumps when I hear his music because so much is going on and he is somehow able to make a huge climax, and then give that climax a climax. It is just so unreal to me how a song can do that. I am so glad you posted those 2 bands that you mentioned because I've been trying to find artist with similar "cinematic dubstep" and I hope I can find material that is somewhat on-par with Celldweller's instrumental works.

    Also, can't wait for Scandroid, it's gonna be epic!

    First time I listened to it, I was playing The Walking Dead Season 1 ... Now I always remember of that great game when I listen to that great song 8') Moreover, the lyrics are perfect for it

  50. Pavlik

    Amazing song. Didn't hear smth this lvl for a long time

  51. TheCyprusX

    For everyone that says Celldweller has to go back to his roots as metal-industrial, hear me out . 
    I used to listen to CD when I was 16 years old . 8 years later I still listen to him , and I appreciate the way he evolved and changed because I changed too . You can't stay the same 
    there is an evolution and change that had to take place , because things can't always stay the same. 

    Vanesa el Briged

    TheCyprusX his roots are what circle of dust is. :) I agree that he evolved, though combine his roots with what he is now would evolve him more!


    Reading your old comment, I'm so glad you finally got a new COD album.

    The Sleepless Knight

    it's why people hate Nickelback and Foo Fighters now days...

    Chessia Rüner

    Hey look someone who gets it. Musicians don't sell out. They evolve. Hell I am happy that my tastes have evolved with everything. It's part of life.

    Chessia Rüner

    @Andy Wolfe Benjamin Most people hate those two bands because of how overplayed they are. I mean Nickelback does have talent. Not my sound at all, but I get why people like them. It's just overplayed as hell.

    The "Photograph" meme was the best though.

  52. Gami

    3:42 is totally my favorite part

    Someone needs to make a metal remix of this song. This version isn't doing it for me :/

    Yeah, too much electronic I feel. I still love the song but still.

    paul udarov or viks sideburns could probably make a kickass remix. Quick somebody shine the bat signal in the sky!!

  62. aron alvarez

    muy buena musica se merece un 10 re groso que bueno 

  63. lunatiKK_synth

    Okay, I'm sorry.

    Both of his vocal albums were equally incredible, giving me goosebumps upon every listen. The tracks off of those albums are just so unique, epic, and powerful. But I have to admit, everything I've heard from both Blackstar EPs has been, surprisingly, very poor. He is not only turning to generic electronic music, but he is creating some of the most low grade examples of it I've heard. This track is just crossing the line. Indeed, here, Klayton is trying his hardest to just make another average dubstep song. And he does that. The product? One of the most vomit-inducing dubstep drops I've heard in my entire life that persists throughout the entire track. As for the other songs on the EP, the same analogy goes, and the rest of the tracks are just plain boring. Disagree if you will, but this is just a huge step in the wrong direction for Celldweller, and I strongly hope that he can redeem himself for his third vocal album.

    My review for Blackstar Acts One and Two: 1.5/5


    i don't know about me..but my fuckin ears love him!!!

    @***** revengeance

  76. Djuggernaut

    Though it isn't bad, I still really prefer classic, debut-album Celldweller. I appreciate his trying to broaden his horizons, but I still think the industrial metal style was and is his strong suit.


    That's just like, your opinion man.

    Super Fresh

    An opinion i strongly agree with. Expanding on what you do is cool, but his strong points lie in the classic industrial rock sounds. I'd rather hear him try to do something different with that than just something different at all. 


    That may be, but to me personally appeals how rock and electronic braid together. I need music that is powerful, melodic, periodic, but not bland, and regardless of strenght of the riff, clear rock sometimes just doesn't do it. I'm enjoying Klayton's songs where out of chaos comes harmony, mastering electronic music that can convince even people, who till today claimed that what's not made with instruments only cannot be called music. And where the parts fall on you like tsunami, shaking ground with every beat of your heart and bathing you in light and flames.

  77. k o t o

    Whats his song with the spanish guitar in it again??

    Mark Fitzgerald

    Senorita Bonita maybeh? :P

    k o t o

    YUP!!! Thanks a bunch!

  78. Jovee Gillen

    The music references are so common in the book, it's pretty much like this:

    "The time between Klayton ordering the Blackstar through the mail and The Arrival of the Blackastar felt like an Eon. But once it arrived, he was so happy, he felt like this was the Best It's Gonna Get. He took it out to the beach and it drifted Against the Tide. Still, no one thought it was magical, but Klayton reasoned that since actions speak Louder Than Words, it was magical."

    (Note: That's not at ALL how the book goes, I'm just showing what it's like to read the book, in terms of references.)

    Eli S

    THAT ANNOYED ME SO MUCH! But it was still a good book.

    Jovee Gillen

    @Eli S yes

    lightninghawk 101
