Rise and Fall

February 29, 2020
John Holden

We all have addictions and obsessions but when these get out of control, they can consume us and have devastating effects on those around us.

This song is about someone’s relationship with both their addiction and the person they care about. As they battle with the situation, they reflect on how the person they love has attempted to save them from self-destruction. Clinging to the idea of hope yet knowing the thrill and instant gratification may prove too alluring, even though after the rise inevitably there will be the fall. They know they have to make a choice but which path will they take?
