Biography

Formed as a recording project in 1998, Deep Rising has evolved into a GREAT LIVE ROCK BAND with a prog edge featuring excellent singing, playing, and song writing that draws from influences as varied as Stone Temple Pilots, King’s X, Alice In Chains, Jane's Addiction, Peter Gabriel, Seal, Led Zeppelin. Deep Rising music is visceral and meaningful, drawing from the best of their influences and creating their own style which has been described as immediately accessible, interesting and deep, honest and positive, and definitely unique. Hard rockers are drawn by the powerful guitars. Proggers are drawn by the vocal melodies, arrangements, and meaningful lyrics. There is a power in their live shows that is not measured in decibels, but in passion and style. Critically acclaimed on Long Island, they are now reaching out across the world to spread their music, and have successfully begun growing a fanbase in the UK and Europe with good reviews in the press there.

Lyrics

So Frustrated

Written By: Glenn Burgos

The sunrise
Introduces the day
The sun shines
Still my eyes only show me gray
Whispers
Ghosts of words people say
Drifters
Promises gone astray

Now I know it
Now I really know
Now I know how it really feels

To be right when you wish you were wrong
To be here when you wish you were gone
To be grounded and just want to fly
To have answers that can’t tell you why
So frustrated

Nowhere
Can my heart find it’s song
Somewhere
There must be a place I belong
Never
Never, never give in
Sever
Evil thought I can’t win

Now I know it
Now I really know
Now I know how it really feels

To be right when you wish you were wrong
To be here when you wish you were gone
To be grounded and just want to fly
To have answers that can’t tell you why
So frustrated

Running on a treadmill of the damned
Funny how our plans, like sand
Slip through our hands

Now I know it
Now I really know
Now I know how it really feels

To be right when you wish you were wrong
To be here when you wish you were gone
To be grounded and just want to fly
To have answers that can’t tell you why
So frustrated

X

Written By: Deep Rising

Someone will always say I can't
Never conform to "established standards"
Always another door that's slamming in my face
Born with an X upon my head

But we've got power
It's our time now
To take the reins

Our minds are ours
And we'll reach far
Beyond today

Nothing that we can do or say
Gives us a voice to speak to power
Because we were born to broken homes made of clay
Born with an X upon our heads

But we've got power
It's our time now
To take the reins

The numbers, they say that we can't win
Destined to live as mindless servants
But i've seen enough to know we're so much more than this
Born with an X upon our heads

Hides Inside

Written By: Deep Rising

You will notice
See that I don't care about the fire
In your eyes
If you will focus
On anything beside yourself
You will find

Fear it hides inside illusion
And buries inside what is real
Find the fear holds the real you
'Cause there on the inside is where you hide

You will notice
That I don't care about your pride
In disguise
If you will focus
On my eyes as I peel the mask away
To see inside

Fear it hides inside illusion
And buried inside is your truth
Find the fear and let it go
'Cause there on the inside is where you lie

Take a walk to find yourself
And you can throw your mask away
Take it off to find yourself
Through the ugliness you are today
Only when you're by yourself
Can you hear the voice inside you say
Take a walk and find yourself
And come another day

You will notice
It hides inside
