Up from the Ashes


This is a fighting song! Sometimes the battle gets so intense you begin to believe it is all over, and everything is lost. Our circumstances can be a failed relationship, financial loss, death of a loved one, sickness, or any number of things. But there is life after the ashes.

You may wonder if hard rock music can be positive. Is that possible?? This song is, and there are a number of groups out there, that can infuse us with some positive energy. This group is called The Letter Black.

Sometimes in the fight, you’ve just got to have some good rock music! This song encourages us to keep on breathing. We are not giving up, and we ain’t done yet!

So hold on, buckle up, and be careful with your ears.

Be strong, keep fighting, and I wish you peace!

Guitars and Drums

Driskill Handmade Guitar

When I was young I used to bang away at air guitars,

the drums were speaking,

and the air was filled with metal.

When I was older I condemned it all,

I shunned the culture, like the Amish do,

realizing now I was wrong,

pride was condemning.

So, no more negative monsters,

tearing me down, speaking death,

but loud guitars and drums,

speaking with power a positive message,

Not religion just positive,

songs like, Up from the Ashes, Not Gonna Die,

speaking life, not death,

building me up, not tearing down,

rock on.
