You were told to swallow crawl and hide
Victims of fear and deception
Get ahold of yourself rise above
The better part of you, immortal

May this purple spring flow into your soul
Exhausting all these black holes inside
Wake up to the sound of doom!
Let this chant ring in your bones and lift you up

Get strong

Leave the mud behind and climb up the sky
Wake up to the sound of doom!


  • when did gojira go pop? is this even the same band lol?

  • LOVE!!! \m/

  • Thank you, Gojira, for this album and its message.

  • Tellement beau.

  • These four French bois have my heart. What beautiful music. Love their activism too.

  • senewss.info/slow/fc7UpqicjcSmfro/video

  • I hope that Gojira will also write a song about French imperialism in Africa and especially in Algeria, about the torture, assassinations and nuclear tests that France carried out.

  • good work

  • Cool message. Song is a little slow and boring. I guess the next song will be about them being attacked by covid 19. Hmmm maybe faster more interesting;)

  • Gojira Rocks ! But off course


  • 0:00 : Bip, mercredi 9 heures 14

  • Puissant

  • Luckily this sad period is now over

  • free Tibet!

  • David Lynch & Ben Frost had been saying this since 1990 in Twin Peaks. It's about time more people followed suit.

  • I support the message, but maybe they should be more concerned about their own country. 75% of the French people believe civil war is imminent. Islam have invaded their home. Macron is a globalist idiot. Le Pen will lead the way.

  • I'm China born Chinese myself and I hate the CCP government from the deep of my heart, for what they done to the Tibetans, to the Chinese, and for what they're still doing the same to the Uyghurs, to the Mongolians and to the people of HK. And it's sad a lot the young people of my generation they support the CCP and how little the world knows about what happened and is happening there. Thx Gojira

  • J'ai pas accroché le solo à la première écoute, mais oui. Bises. Aurel

  • tibet. their throat singing was the second thing i found after searching 'monk singing' while on the search for the sound that i heard in Heaven when God took me there. now i am into the hu band from mongolia. the band that was with me in a dream before going to Heaven was you gojira. i recently had a dream that i was singing a hu band song with you. maybe a few weeks ago. i was out of breath in the dream so it was kind of difficult, but we got it to sound just like their song, 'the gereg'.

  • Amazing song, Gojira is for me the best actual band, real artists, each album is different. This one is so melodic and melancolic. I tried to made a guitar cover of this song: senewss.info/slow/jaeqbJh1mdjUoLI/video

  • WoW! In awe of this song and the incredible visual representation. Just Incredible art with purpose. Great growth for Gojira as well. beautiful

  • Esto es oro en polvo ❤️.

  • Whenever he reached the top of that mountain and turned and saw Himalayas my jaw dropped and I froze and cried. Thank you for this. I hope His Holiness The Dalai Lama will see this. Namaste'


  • No other band has greater purpose

  • What is the point of China to be honest? They should've just given themselves to Taiwan or Hong Kong

  • Gojira - безусловно, лучшая метал группа современности. Этот шедевр можно слушать бесконечно, настолько свежая и крутая идея. Мастера.

  • Awesome!!!!!

  • I cried. It is so powerful. You are the best. I've never heard a band, that caused so many emotions. Thank you for your art.

  • Great message and musically what an evolution and matured sound for this band loved this album.

    • It's a good day to see a Gojira song hit almost a million views in a week, cheers~

  • I don't understand, they write good melody, good tune and kick ass riffs but why short lyrics ?😅

  • the verse is like shooting star 2.0 ;)

  • Gojira es dios y lo sabes

  • Vous êtes bluffant les gars... On vous demanderait de créer une chanson polka/bossa nova / reggae / métal / biniou, vous nous pondriez un chef d'œuvre...... Love gojira ! ❤️

  • Gojira can make another video and song about genocides against local people in Ruanda,Algeria and other french colonies which were commited by french imperialists?

  • To add another comment, as I tell my nine year old and thirteen all the time, "We're living in the Golden Age of metal, gentlemen. Savor it. It won't last forever."

  • This is what Communists do: They outlaw religion, destroy culture and attempt to overlay their own despotic culture of owning nothing and being nothing upon an existing culture. When that existing culture resists, which they will as a natural response, they kill people. In the meantime, organizations in this country, funded by major corporations and foreign interests are pushing Marxism upon the ignorant young, sexi-fying it. Communism is coming to America, and as I have said for years, there is no co-existence with them. They will build and build and gather their strength until they have enough critical mass, and then they will rise up and kill you, just as they did to 180,000,000 people across this planet in the 20th Century. Scared of Nazis? Let me show you Communism. Hold my beer. In other news, there are a few albums in history that will go down as "perfect albums". Tool's 'Fear Innoculum, Trivium's 'Shogun', Novelists "Souvenirs', While She Sleeps 'So What' are examples of this, where there is not an unpleasant moment on the album are fine examples of this. Gojira's 'Fortitude' is another. Just brilliant.

    • Joe Duplantier hate you and your kind of people, you fuc.... right win..

  • Wonderful!!!

  • You are occupying my heart more and more with your every new album. You have become one of my favorites. Love from Nepal \../

  • wow ...excellent music .... Gojira ....its your time !!!!! Fresh ,powerful energetic progressive and futuristic sounding band!!!!

  • je rêve ou j'ai entendu comme un solo de gruit? Anyway, bonne zic', comme d'hab. By the way, vous feriez un super groupe de blues, je voudrais assister à une répet'....

  • Gojira. Always exciting, never boring.


  • J'en connais quatre qui n'iront pas en tournée en Chine......superbe chanson ......j'en ai même pleuré durant le clip merci

  • It's a good day to see a Gojira song hit almost a million views in a week, cheers~

  • No doubt historical message is important, but in reality it supports rising hatered around China. The truth is that China is becoming a real power and all the European plus American media cultivate hatered around it. Their business giants scared to death of Chinese growing economy.


  • 😀

  • Gojira 🤘 China 🖕

  • Masterpiece. Thanks guys for raising the level more and more

  • Libertad para el Tibet, Palestina y los pueblos indígenas de América Latina

  • You were told to swallow, crawl, and hide Victims of fear and deception Get a hold of yourself, rise above A better part of you, immortal May this firstborn spring flow into your soul Exhausting all these black holes inside Wake up to the sound of doom Let this chant ring in your bones and lift you up Get strong Get strong Get strong Get strong You can run me high then climb up the sky Wake up to the sound of doom You can run me high then climb up the sky Wake up to the sound of doom You can run me high then climb up the sky Wake up, wake up You can walk me high then climb up the sky Wake up to the sound of doom You can walk me high then climb up the sky Wake up to the sound of doom

  • This is how metal should be... I was crying throughout this song..

  • Dopest band alive at this point

  • Om mani padme hum. ☸🕉✝️💜💜💜

  • I’ve always been a big fan of Gojira and now hearings thing song and watching this video has increased my respect of Gojira a thousand times.Free Tibet movement has been an issue very few people talks about and coming up with this song will definitely give strength to our Tibetan brothers to fight for their motherland. Respect and love to you guys from India ❤️

    • his homeland as an adult is so sad and beautiful at the same time

  • hahahahahahaha pure lies, where can i find the data about this facts? in pentagon? pure shit.

  • As a french musician, I can only say that Gojira is by far the best french band ever created. That song is magic, thanks for all guys from the core of my soul

  • This sucks! Stick to putting whale samples in songs and shut up about China, you clearly don’t know shit

  • Tremendo tema, llega al alma..

  • C'est tourné ya Longtemps

  • Yo gojira rules. Tell your friends

  • how can u h8 on this

  • I like crazy hard metal.... a friend told me to check these guys out, I would like them... I’m no longer friends with this person... WTF? It’s not bad music, but.... no.

    • check "the heaviest matter of the universe " or "wolf down the earth " just to name those ..and come back at me

    • This isn't exactly their hardest song though. Check out songs like ocean planet.

  • Fucking beautiful song

  • As a Tibetan Buddhist myself, taught by my Teacher in Exile, Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche. I thank you for spreading the message.

    • The new Gojira is not about powerful riffs,but about delivering powerful social messages which no one talks about.More Power to you guys!

  • Man, that ending hurt a lot. Fantastic video and song.

  • Masterpiece. Magnifique album !

  • CIA/NATO propaganda! Stick to saving the whales!

  • Thank you for bringing awareness to the atrocities to the Tibetans committed by the CCP. ❤

  • China: *ethnic cleansing of Tibetans and Uighurs and manifest destiny against Hong Kong* Disneyfilm: And the problem is?

  • Et dire qu il y’a des cons ... qui paye pour ça ....

  • Merci Gojira... Je Je je.. Kiff a mort. Ç trop bon. Ça me rappelle ma jeunesse. Merci les gars.. Trop bien. Trop bon. Ce morceau ç le trip total. Mon corps et mon âme vibrent de nouveau ! 🤘

  • En boucle depuis que j'ai choppé l'album.

  • Grazie gojira x questa fantastica musica e bellissimo video. horns up!

  • kaijus? No? :V

  • Gojira doesn't make music. They make emotions.

  • So traurig

  • Such a fantastic song and incredible message!!! you guys are amazing

  • Pinaise, bah couillon, y a même un solo. Ze Solo ! Ce titre là, tu l'imagines live, à gorges déployées ... Whou ... Les poils !

  • And this is why I love Gojira

  • First of all, what a fantastic song!! I can't get it out of my head. I also admire how they have credited absolutely everyone involved including spot boys, drivers etc. Lovely to see that from artists!

  • fantásticas. Fortitude pode não ser o mais criativo CD do conjunto, mas com certeza é também memorável.

  • This is so fucking different... AND SO FUCKING AWESOME!!!!

  • I love gojira this band is awesome

  • Communism is the cancer of the world

  • With all that Gojira does for raising awareness among the masses apart from making super awesome music just increase their respect in me manifolds. This is how art should be. It should continue to inspire & be a weapon for the defenseless. Take a bow. Forever grateful for your music & your efforts to uplift humanity & make world a better place. With folks like you, we still have hopes of redemption.

    • Thank you Gojira for not cowering to China like the NBA.

  • Mais putain qu'est ce qu'ils sont bons !!!! Vivement une tournée !!!

  • Damn, this makes me feel things...

  • This band is simply on another level

  • Aa long as Gojira keep creating heavy bangers, I love that they also keep doing these meaningful and melodic songs.

  • Wake up to the sound of DOOOOOOM!!!

  • 4:09 ♥

  • A tous les peuples opprimés ! Merci GOJIRA

  • you have to love early 2000's urbanite activism...

  • This is so wack. What happened to Gojira?

  • i never realized the powerful messages behind these songs until i heard the interview on liquid metal.

  • Powerful message video. Go Gojira!

  • Love from NEPAL
