"Stand Tall", the closing track off of Wake Up Paradise's debut EP, "Love. Faith. Wealth. War.", is a song about perseverance. No matter what life hits you with, just remember to stand tall and walk hard.


Down to my last breath. I found a second wind.
I'm throwing caution to it, never looking back again.
Took too long to write this song... couldn't get my head around it.
But I took some time to figure it out. Found a way to talk about it.
Found a way to get it out, a way to break it down.
Got my family at my side, to help me make the sound.

To help find all the answers to these questions, obsessions, reflections
That got me - guessing and stressing.
Helped me find a new direction
Took a little time but I learned a life lesson.

Stand tall and walk hard.
This is your last chance. This is your last stand.

Don't consider this a warning. Just take this as the calm before the storm
And I'm wishing you nothing but the best, but if you die like the rest I'd expect nothing less.
And baby, baby, if it suits you, I'd like to sing a little something that makes me think of you.
And just so you know, it goes LA LA LA LA
Raise your glasses, take some chances, show them what your worth.
This song's for anyone who's strung out, down, or feeling hurt.
No more grudges, lose them crutches, we're standing high and walking tall
Let's let it out, let's let it up, let it out.
Come on and sing it with me, LA LA LA LA

Stand tall and walk hard
This is your last chance. This is your last stand.

Stand tall. Walk hard.
This is your last chance.
