World premier of Jeremy Hoop's brand new music video "Rise Up" from his debut EP "Rise Up"
(available for purchase at http://music.jeremyhoop.com .)
"Rise Up" was featured in the documentary film "The Tea Party Movie" ( http://www.teapartymovie.com )
that chronicles the rise of the recent tea party movement (inspired by Rick Santelli and the "Rant of the Year")
and the march on Washington DC on September 12, 2009 (see: 9.12 DC TEA PARTY - MARCH FOOTAGE WITH INTERVIEWS & 9/12 Taxpayer Tea Party March on Washington, DC, and THE TEA PARTY & THE CIRCUS - Final Healthcare Reform Protest).

"Rise Up" is dedicated to all American Patriots committed to constitutionally limited government, founding principles, personal responsibility, and eliminating corruption, not just in government but also on the individual level as well. Special thanks to Glenn Beck - his words were a muse for this song as well those of as Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, and Bill O'Reilly, true patriots all.

"Rise Up" written and performed by Jeremy Hoop, rides in the vein of Muse - Uprising [OFFICIAL VIDEO]. Hoop's three song EP, "Rise Up" is a dynamic, gritty, hard-hitting EP with shades of Alanis Morissette, Rob Thomas, and Daughtry. The recording for "Rise Up" was produced by Jeremy Hoop and Aaron Merrill at Aaron Merrill Music and Sound Studios. The music video was directed by Jeremy Hoop and Rhett Lewis, filmed by Rhett Lewis, and edited by Rhett Lewis and Luke Livingston of Ground Floor Video.

Lyrics:

Rise Up
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. They are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty...the pursuit of happiness." - The Declaration of Independence

Lookin' at millions under a circus tent
Watchin' a jackass chase a dumb pachyderm
Oh what a show!
Tappin' on any shoulder that I can find
Of anyone on there who might change their mind
It's time to go.
To the real world outside with those pirate ships
The drunken sailors with dirty lips
That rule the night
Shoutin' don't be afraid of those wicked men
There's more of us than there are of them
Come join the fight!

Rise up and be counted
Take your part in the solution
Linking arm in arm, to arms, to arms
Lower your guns and raise your voices
Join the peaceful revolution
Shout I'm mad as hell
and I will ring the bell of freedom

Ride with me from Boston to Phili to LA
With reason come marching
With knowledge come drumming
Let everyone hear you
Each soul that is near you
The British are coming! the British are coming!

We built a house of sticks a hall of parlor tricks
But we blame it all on our politics
Oh what a shame!
Truth is the cancer ain't just in the head
Half the body's nearly dead
We're all to blame
Time to pledge no more standing on one thin leg
Lack of principle's a powder-keg
And we can't wait
If we just say what we mean mean what we say
Take back the power we gave away
It's not too late - Grab your tea and follow me

Rise up and be counted
Take your part in the solution
Linking arm in arm with words as arms
Lower your guns and raise your voices
Join the peaceful revolution
Have you an ear to hear, an eye that sees us
We come in the Spirit of Martin, of Ghandi, of Jesus
Holding fast to the words with the power that frees us
Rise up. Make your choices
Choose the peaceful revolution
Sell what you have to sell so the devil can tell
Then let them raise their hell
And we will ring the bell of freedom
The bell of freedom
The bell of freedom
