Haken - Earthrise Lyrics




One step back
Take two leaps forward
And with baited breath we wait
For generation x to fade
Embracing the emancipation
How will history remember
A masterpiece chiselled to dirt?
Collapsing pillars of the earth
A march of progress in reverse

Blood fills my lifeless heart
Eyes flicker in the dark

Two steps back
One leap forward
You let your shackles fall with grace
Still counting on that wish you made
To reach out far beyond the pale
How I dream to feel alive

Bestow upon these vital signs
The lunar path dictates the tide
Will we ever reach the shoreline?

How do we answer to the Gods
Among the men creating us?
As I inhale the hurricane
I touch the void and feel no pain

Resolve to carry on
Another life awaits beyond the horizon
Evolve and we'll ensure our survival
We are the revolution

Keep reaching through horizons
To leave our past behind us
We turn toward the earthrise

    Not enough prog-metal songs written almost entirely in a major key like this

    One of my favorite songs ever.

  8. Veilhelm Alexander Guarin

    I came back to this song after I while... I´m going through the hardest times of my life... and this is a spark of joy that was needed. I am thankful that there are still musicians that aim for transmitting such deep feelings. It makes me feel that there is still hope.

  9. PanasonicTooth

    Haken are Freemasons

  10. Cory Cooper

    This might be the best song ever created...yes there are more difficult songs to play...this one is just perfect

  12. neil foss

    I still think this the dogs bollocks! Top drawer lads

    The singer owns it so hard. super good shit.

  14. Far Squirrel 185

    oh hey I have those same light up drumsticks. They sound really really bad if anyone is wondering

  15. Chris Feakes

    Ross really shouldn't wear his best shirts when he's decorating.

  16. Jens Ljungberg

    Some parts of this song is the best song Coldplay has never written ^^

    6.5 out of 10

    https://youtu.be/7dgqhKxH3jg?t=5m29s

  20. Emmet Blanchette

    you know its quality music when the bass has more strings than the guitar

    Louis Castro

    Except the bass has 6 strings and the guitars has 8

  21. Adamack Beats

    This video reminds me of a Tim and Eric sketch

  22. Daniel Brunette

    I want to make this cyberscape playable as a star fox level. Just sayin. (SNES of course)

  23. Abel Lopez Sanchez

    This song always reminds me of a certain song in the anime show Seven Deadly Sins. I dont know why

    Ron Tregenza

    Yes indeed raise him right and Feed him some prog for breakfast :)

  27. Leaddevo

    Best band of the 21st century so far - endlessly evolving, endlessly inventive and yes - Ross still moves like Anne Widdecombe!

  28. Iva

    I love an insanely talented band with amazing catalogue that is able to be completely self-aware of their cheesiness and not give a flying fuck about it!

    Ron Tregenza

    We like good taste rather than looks :)

  29. Stuart Rochabrunt

    You can criticize the video and the poses all you want, but what happens from 2:55 is the most amazing execution and chord progression I've ever heard in progressive music with the highest peak at 3:16

    Mario Antonio

    I whole heartedly agree. It's insane how smoothly it flows for something so abstract.

    Ron Tregenza

    If you're into Real Prog you're not looking for bling LoL :)

  30. Daniele Caruso

    Perché non passa in radio questo?

  31. The Authority

    Pure joy from start to finish

  32. Kedar Awachat

    Too happy gay for me but the musicianship is superb indeed

  45. VanMordoc

    This song made me weep at the message of beauty and hope this song weaves.

  46. trollmastersage

    I love the music, but I just can't take the lead singer seriosly. His voice is great, but what the hell?

  47. Malcolm McMartin

    Classic self indulgent prog wank with the lame ass video. I fucking hate autotune.

  48. Meh Sugaaar

    One of the best modern metal bands?
    Ridiculous! If you think so, I feel bad for you!!
    They are one of the best prog bands ever!!

  49. raitoxote

    All of Circus Maximus' latest condensed in one only song, hahaha

  50. joshconelius

    I only discovered Haken after seeing them on Mike Portnoys Shattered Fortress tour.
    Gotta say, I like their work.

  51. Zach

    The drumming on this song is magical!

  52. Jornt Wagenaar

    One step back
    Take two leaps forward
    And with baited breath we wait
    For Generation X to fade
    Embracing the emancipation
    How will history remember
    A masterpiece chiselled to dirt?
    Collapsing pillars of the Earth
    A march of progress in reverse

    Blood fills my lifeless heart
    Eyes flicker in the dark

    Two Steps back
    One Leap forward
    You let your shackles fall with grace
    Still counting on that wish you made
    To reach out far beyond the pale
    How I dream to feel alive

    Bestow upon these vital signs
    The lunar path dictates the tide

    We are the revolution

    Keep reaching through horizons
    To leave our past behind us
    We turn towards the Earthrise

  53. The Hermit

    Yikes. Stay away from the goofy videos, guys. You're WAY better than this!

  54. ChucksterOLove

    Man, this is really gay. All this video is missing are cameos from Kenny G and Richard Simmons...

  55. Jonah Dement

    Somehow convinced DJs at an event to play this yesterday. 👍

  56. apemanblunder

    Wow!
    This is not the Haken I know.
    WTH happened?

  57. Deybi Fernandez

    Great song

  58. TheMeJustMe75

    Who makes the guitars? How many strings is it because it looks like 8 but I can't get a good look at it.

    OCTAFFINITY1985

    TheMeJustMe75 8 string Strandberg for both!

  59. German Velasquez

    canción qlia pulenta, me gusta :)

  60. Potpulation Weedtertainment

    Discovered this by accident.. what a fucking amazing song.. to bad the band in general sucks ... like literally the only good song

  61. Bob Purcell

    Sounds like they've been listening to Dutch Uncles, Field Music, etc. Sort of 80s-inspired (but, trust me, cooler than the actual 80s ever were)

  62. TheMeJustMe75

    I heard this song for the first time on Spotify the other day on my way home in traffic. For some reason I get a real 80's feeling to the vocals. He could have sang songs from the early to mid 80's. The lead guitarist seems to pay a lot of respect to Eddie Van Halen and the progressive metal of the late 80's to 90's.

  63. Alex P.

    The best group with a really good song and the worst fucking clip xD

  64. Ben D.

    Who knew Ron Jeremy could sing so beautifully

  65. ong zhenixn

    who got band music score? really nice, amazing, want to play it in band

  66. Nott Me

    What the hell

  67. Manifest Destiny

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha ross knock it off

  68. Eddy josue Cabrera guzmán

    I loved progressive metal \,,/,

  69. Daniel Afonso

    Conner Green monster!!

  70. tormato

    Great work, like it so much. Can wait hear it live...hope

  71. Raymi Rodriguez

    this is ridiculously good. Bands nowadays are just the next link in the evolution chain. awesome stuff!!!

  72. God give me voice , God guide my hand

    love it

  73. 120bluestar

    Why I think on coldplay while I listen to that song?

  74. logan jst tureta

    Ótimo ...linha instrumentalista... Vocal.. Digno de uma banda progressiva

  75. Héctor Alvarez

    New retro prog.... Nice

  76. Reidoon

    Man, you know how every 1-2 years you find a song you fall completely in love with? This it is for me right now.

  77. Александр Кубанцев

    Почему он так похож на Игоря Николаева?

  78. Carlos Eduardo Gonzalez Arias

    Oh my fuckin' god , is Boyka on the guitar !!!

  79. metbluejones3455

    This will be the first thing my kid will hear if I ever have one.

  80. Natália Maas

    Tão bom encontrar uma banda realmente boa de novo!

  81. Grzegorz Cholewa

    We are the revolution fellas! cheers

  82. Christopher Blue

    This song is beautiful, but my god does the singer look like a cornball.

  83. Shy Darkomes

    This is what will happen when Toto will be start play metal.

  84. TOAOM123

    Dat 1:12 drum lick doh

  85. Phoenix Steel

    It's weird when the coolest guy in your band is the keyboardist

  86. Analbert Shwuggenduggen

    0:42 OH HELLO THERE

  87. Stefan Adcock

    I haven't air drummed that hard in a while. Awesome.

  88. Asami Cat

    it's too much happy for me

  89. martin perez

    Holy Shit!!!! excellent rhythm play. Who cares about the goofy appearance. this is not and i hope will never be a pop act. First time I heard this band and I love there sound.

  90. Branden Meyers

    I love the video because everyone else is all like "WE ARE VERY SERIOUS INSTRUMENT-PLAYING MEN" and Ross is like "I AM A FLUFFY CHEESY POTATO, LOVE ME"

  91. Chorofonfilo

    This is breath of life in an era of shitty music. Haken guys going for the save.

  92. By om

    not creative, visually. Boring. What a pitty

  93. kapamar
