You were told to swallow crawl and hide
Victims of fear and deception
Get ahold of yourself rise above
The better part of you, immortal

May this purple spring flow into your soul
Exhausting all these black holes inside
Wake up to the sound of doom!
Let this chant ring in your bones and lift you up

Get strong

Leave the mud behind and climb up the sky
Wake up to the sound of doom!

    Man I love how Gojira sheds light on all the issues with our world, they can make badass, heavy music and make it meaningful, which I appreciate more then typical generic metal lyrics. Gojira are my favorite 'hippies'

    If you're a "Gojira fan" and you don't like this song, F off. You don't get Gojira. Gojira's not just metal. Gojira transcends metal. If can't accept that, that's your problem.

    Que interessante. A música do Gojira vai "conscientizar" o mundo para as questões da amazônia, do Nepal e do Tibet? Tá certo então! A proposta é válida, porém, grande parte dos headbangers em 2021, se associam ao espectro revolucionário progressista. "Revolução Cultural" de ativismo identitário, ou seja, convergentes com as pautas progressistas e socialistas. Conclusão, totalitarismo político estatista tecnocrata caminha á passos largos. Reflexão. Estes "coletivos" acreditam que o materialismo secular ASSISTENCIALISTA irá "salvá-los". Na contra mão, nossas liberdades foram para a casa do caralho e estão no "fio da navalha" de permissões e concessões destes regimes intervencionistas. Quem viver verá!

    I support the message, but maybe they should be more concerned about their own country. 75% of the French people believe civil war is imminent. Islam have invaded their home. Macron is a globalist idiot. Le Pen will lead the way.

    I'm China born Chinese myself and I hate the CCP government from the deep of my heart, for what they done to the Tibetans, to the Chinese, and for what they're still doing the same to the Uyghurs, to the Mongolians and to the people of HK. And it's sad a lot the young people of my generation they support the CCP and how little the world knows about what happened and is happening there. Thx Gojira

    tibet. their throat singing was the second thing i found after searching 'monk singing' while on the search for the sound that i heard in Heaven when God took me there. now i am into the hu band from mongolia. the band that was with me in a dream before going to Heaven was you gojira. i recently had a dream that i was singing a hu band song with you. maybe a few weeks ago. i was out of breath in the dream so it was kind of difficult, but we got it to sound just like their song, 'the gereg'.

    This is what Communists do: They outlaw religion, destroy culture and attempt to overlay their own despotic culture of owning nothing and being nothing upon an existing culture. When that existing culture resists, which they will as a natural response, they kill people. In the meantime, organizations in this country, funded by major corporations and foreign interests are pushing Marxism upon the ignorant young, sexi-fying it. Communism is coming to America, and as I have said for years, there is no co-existence with them. They will build and build and gather their strength until they have enough critical mass, and then they will rise up and kill you, just as they did to 180,000,000 people across this planet in the 20th Century. Scared of Nazis? Let me show you Communism. Hold my beer. In other news, there are a few albums in history that will go down as "perfect albums". Tool's 'Fear Innoculum, Trivium's 'Shogun', Novelists "Souvenirs', While She Sleeps 'So What' are examples of this, where there is not an unpleasant moment on the album are fine examples of this. Gojira's 'Fortitude' is another. Just brilliant.
