Deadmau5 - Raise Your Weapon

Let’s keep the dark Halloween vibes flowing and take it back to 2011 with deadmau5′ brooding progressive house/dubstep anthem “Raise Your Weapon”!


One of the most iconic deadmau5 tracks of all time, “Raise Your Weapon” delivers the nostalgia tenfold with its simmering progression and hard-hitting dubstep auditory detail. Finding its home on the 2010 smash hit album 4X4=12, “Raise Your Weapon” was officially released on May 23, 2011. It is a song about a tumultuous love gone wrong featuring striking vocals from Greta Svabo Bech.

Nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording, “Raise Your Weapon” further establishes the fact that deadmau5 is one of the most prolific and musically versed artists to ever grace the dance industry. In fact, not only is deadmau5 one of the best beat makers to ever walk the earth, but he is also one of the most innovative songwriters of our era. Joining forces with Cydney Sheffield and Sonny Moore (Skrillex), the trio crafted a lyrical story that drips with profound emotional expression.

What makes “Raise Your Weapon” so incredibly appealing is its two-faced musical approach. The first half of the track sits us in a pocket of warm progression. As we feel the melodic sound waves flow through our soul with heavy intonation, we are set up for a head-first dive into mayhem. This is the moment that the latter half opens us up to lose all our inhibitions on the dance floor, delivering dubstep fire with just enough heat to set our bodies into a full-on rage session. So, without further ado, it’s time to relive the magic of “Raise Your Weapon”!

deadmau5 – Raise Your Weapon Lyrics:

Rippin’ my heart was so easy, so easy
Launch your assault now, take it easy
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
One word and it’s over
Rippin’ through like a missile,
Rippin’ through my heart,
Rob me of this love
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
And it’s over
Love your ego, you won’t feel a thing
Always number one,
The pen with a bent wrist crooked king
Sign away our peace, for your war
One word and it’s over
Dropping your bombs now, on all we’ve built
How does it feel now to watch it burn, burn, burn?
Raise your weapons, raise your weapons,
And it’s over
Rippin’ through like a missile,
Rippin’ through my heart,
Rob me of this love
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
And it’s over
How does it feel now to watch it burn (burn)?
Rippin’ my heart was so easy, so easy
Launch your assault now, take it easy
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
One word and it’s over
Rippin’ through like a missile,
Rippin’ through my heart,
Rob me of this love
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
And it’s over
Love your ego, you won’t feel a thing
Always number one,
The pen with a bent wrist crooked king
Sign away our peace, for your war
One word and it’s over
Dropping your bombs now, on all we’ve built
How does it feel now
To watch it burn, burn, burn?
Raise your weapons, raise your weapons,
And it’s over
