    Well what can I say? The volume 6 trailer just came out and with it, another amazing song, or perhaps even two? I wasn't really sure whether the music in the trailer was a single song, or segments of two songs. ( EDIT: Yeah, listening to it again, it seems that it is just a single song, but that intermission where Blake and Adam speak confused me ) Either way, it's going to be another great season of the adventures of team RWBY, amazing battle scenes and then a few more months of waiting as we all try and speculate when the soundtrack's going to come out 2 months before it actually does!

    Surrounded by weaklings 

    Pathetic and oppressed 

    Satisfied to gnaw on scraps 

    Afraid to leave the nest


    You'll see 

    I'm their hero 

    I'll be lionized 

    I have the strength to do what's needed 

    Unify our people with no compromise 

    Champion of truth until they recognize 

    Lead them to salvation and regain our lives

    Behold your flaccid leaders 

    Too weak to take the prize 

    Replace them with a warrior It's time we mobilize 

    Depose the feeble cowards 

    Heed this battle cry 

    Vengeance on the human filth 

    The time is now, we'll rise!

    I'm here 

    I'm your savior 

    I'll be lionized 

    I am the path to reclamation 

    This world will have no peace 'til our dream's realized 

    No mercy no compassion our fate's justified 

    Time to turn the table on who's tyrannized



    The lyrics are certainly very.... "Adam"y....  blake


    To the surprise of no one he has a bit of a ego, and is kind of a dick.

    An amazing intro song and another amazing song with a great score just in the first episode - I already can't wait for the soundtrack to release.

    Here we go again.

    I started to make lyrics for that score in the first episode. It took me a while since I have issues with speech processing, but I loved the song so much I couldn't help but put the effort in! Anyone should feel free to at me with corrections or additions, however. It's such a good score I want to get it right.


    Time and time again it seems
    We've reach the point where all our dreams 
    Are crumbling all around us
    Every outcome unjust
    Every step it seems has lead
    Us further from the goal instead.
    The triumphs never mattered,
    We're drifting ever backwards.
    And we're running all the time!
    Now we'll need to be the shroud
    And it's growing ever clear
    That a reckoning is near.
    And we'll have to make a choice
    And friends will die
    Words are made of lives
    We'll defeat ourselves
    Trusting in whomever

    My interpretation is pretty pessimistic, so I'm hoping for a happier ending to this song  ruby 

     

    Edit: By the way, these are interrupted from the point of the beginning of the song until the point when  Oscar is fighting one of the Grimm immediately after Ren shrouds the entire train.

    Something I've been thinking about with the new theme Rising is how it compares/contrasts to the chorus of The Triumph from last volume. Rising's chorus ends with "And we're rising like the moon", and The Triumph's with "We'll be the points to touch the sun [...]". The moon/sun imagery really stood out to me.


    @samanthaalison I loved this song too!! Curious to know what its title is. I wanted to see how much of it I could decipher, and I was able to pick out a few more lines. I'd like to do more but it's getting late so it'll have to wait until later.


    I also noticed a few references to last volume's theme Triumph that I though were interesting! We have "The triumphs haven't mattered" kind of nodding to the other song as a whole, and later it references Triumph's "..And all we need's a miracle" line in the lines "A miracle is all we need, But there isn't one in sight" that plays when Yang grabs the grimm and flips it by its horns.


    Time and time again it seems

    We've reached the point where all our dreams

    Are crumbling all around us

    Every outcome unjust


    Every step it seems has lead

    Us further from our goal instead*

    The triumphs haven't mattered*

    We've drifting ever backward


    And we're running out of time*

    Now we're near the finish line*


    And it's growing ever clear

    That a reckoning is near

    And we'll have to make a choice

    ??


    Or is it made of lies

    [..] ourselves

    Trusting in [..]

    A miracle is all we need

    But there isn't one in sight


    Each and every passing day

    [..] disarray

    Confidence descending

    Where's our happy ending?


    [..]

    [..] aspirations quickly fade

    Desperation's rising (?)
