With 3,907 listens it’s obvious that “Lifted” is a song that people love and relate to. According to the group, “Lifted” came from a personal experience with drug addiction. That inspired “Lifted” for the writer, the emotions of inner turmoil and emptiness were overcome in the end by the will to live and see another sunrise.
“Lifted” has an intense message that most people want and need to hear, it also has an intense video to match. When an artist speaks about problems that you may have or had makes you feel less alone, it makes you feel like you can overcome anything. The grunge rock sound is sure to get you in your emotions and head banging.
