I live in a world that has gone completely corrupt from the greed of money, power, and self-pleasure. There is only one place that has not been corrupted from this. That place is in the heart of the Up-risers.
We are all over the world, in hiding, for the government wants us dead. Why you ask? Because we, using our own money, lower ourselves to the look of the needy, and we will hold free, surprise concerts for the powerful and powerless alike. We fill a city with speakers, hiding them and making them blend in with what's around them, then we go to the center of the town with our masks and specialized outfits, and will sing, give water, food, and clothes to any who cannot afford it, man and animal alike depending on what's needed.
We will sing of the world gone wrong and how greed is an virus that's infected us all. We bring what people hide behind a mask in this century, up to them, and show them it's not what it's all about. Some of us are rich, some of us are dirt poor, but we all see and want to share the same thing. We understand that it isn't about the inanimate things on Earth we need to care about and worry for, but for other people, regardless of the clothes they wear, food they eat, or the power they have. We sing of all of this. The people love it, but the government hates it. They constantly try to catch us, but we are in the crowd when we sing, making it twice as hard. People who support us wear customized masks and outfits if they can or are given at least masks if they can't. Those who don't support our secrecy and revolution against the government, still sing and enjoy what we do, for they can relax and not feel the stress of this world for a little while.
We are spread all over the world, and contact each other through the Revolutionists, who are followers, and are chosen by us to help. They aid us in giving messages to other Up-risers throughout the world, yet they still never meet us in person. We do not believe we are better or worse than anyone else, but want everyone to see that everyone is equal. We wear the masks to symbolize that everyone is hiding behind one in our lifetime. But when everyone quits running after power and money, and instead go after the really important things such as caring for others and spreading love, we will throw away the masks, and show them who we really are underneath. The Revolutionists know this too, because it's in our songs and our speeches.
I am in the one of the Up-risers groups located in America. From my band, we will all, one by one, share our stories, as well as the story we are living together. You will finally know our names, how we look, and if we are poor or rich. You will know our secrets to setting up these concerts and donations, and how we get what we give to those in need. You will learn everything from our backgrounds, to our latest concert. This, my friend, will let you be one of the messengers that aid us in so many other ways then helping get letters to other groups of Up-risers. Since we do not need to be found, the only location you will get is a city, and nothing more. There will not be an address told of where we are staying, because we drift from place to place, and home to home. If you are willing to be a messenger for us, continue to read, and keep finding our letters. In each letter you read, there will be a hint as to where the next letter is. You will only understand them if you are a true Revolutionist. Now, with the riddle below, your journey begins...
In the park at the midnight square,
the next letter shall be found there.
It's located next to the plants and the fish,
A parchment in a statues mouth is what you wish,
to find while looking for the next clue.
The statue is of an animal that swims in the blue.
It squeaks and it clicks,
and can be taught to do tricks.
Have you figured out what this animal is?
Time's running out...and this is timed like a quiz.
How much do you know about us?
This test will prove if you we can trust.
In the end only time will tell,
if have fallen into the world's trap as well.
