Intelligence Is Rising Intelligence Is Rising We're not going to find it In writing from devices Still if we go seeking it Intelligence Is Rising Intelligence Is Rising Intelligence Is Rising

Animals 03:35
You and me watching Planet Earth We're braced to see it all See them all Living all Attenborough on the TV Trail maps tents set up inside We're ready Even when we can't see them Their very essence is in the air The night grows calmer when you're there With me, we'll see We're ready We've been stuck inside We're ready The world could pass us by A small herd of bison go running near our tent we weren't ready but that's all right

Montana 05:03
Light up the sky for the rest of the day Wait til we see the stars So much clearer than before Storms miles wide We see everything As we drive towards the mountain side So much clearer than before We'll never see the end of the horizon It's not done It's never done Turbulent sky You and I Fall over our pride It casts a spell Hours fade away Nothing to say Wouldn't matter anyway Ahh It's not done It's never done Turbulent sky You and I Fall over our pride

Now we're walking Every day I never looked back Did you Always outside It's meant to be I swear I barely recall I casually remark Where are you going It's dark outside We rise and fall with the sun Remember the old days That silly scene Stuck with all that old routine No more No more Where did you go my friend It won't be the same in the end The same Oh Where are you going It's dark outside We rise and fall with the sun Remember the old days That silly scene Stuck with all that old routine When I'm falling far behind I'll know it's worth it just to look and see

Writhing river there Water flows so fast Do I really dare? This feeling may soon pass Heading towards the falls Breathe in dip below Under I'm alone I'm all alone It's cold at night Colors fading blue Wandering through the blue I'm alone I'm all alone
6.
Now We March 02:09
Give your hands to signs we hold Never have I been so bold Match your stride to meet my own Now we're two never alone But all of the time we spent Tuning out all of the dissident screams Wanting to go forwards when We feel division we can't mend By the light of the day We shall not be moved Hell no We won't go

Holy Moly 03:27
Look at us What have we done Ruined it all Just for our fun Silly trash Covers us all When your world is made of plastic Then you buy it don't repair it It never ends And we thought it never ended Silly cars All full of gas While we just sit Watch it all pass Well we thought it never ended so We lived with no consequence didn't we And we didn't want a drastic solution But it was too late isn't it Isn't it Is it?

I'm the one going home on the road We can smile and say are we getting old? Midwestern ties run deep from now on But going home on the road I'm the one After all the new places we've gone A wanderlust fills my every last thought Times were good we will miss these days But going home on the road I'm the one Times were good we will miss these days But going home on the road I'm the one

about

Intelligence Is Rising is an optimistic mantra that came to me while on a trip visiting different national parks. Seeing this level of preserved majesty made me proud of our country and I found myself singing this melody while echoing the sentiment. Like 2016's The One Year EP, this album is a celebration of nature but it goes beyond that to reflect on dissent and the role it will play in the future of our planet.
