Citizen Soldier continues to release powerful music, check out their new song Let It Burn

June 21, 2017

Earlier this month we shared a great song from Citizen Soldier which dealt with the struggle of mental illness. The alternative rock band has released another powerful track, Let It Burn. The song is the new single off their EP Caroline, and it could be the song that helps someone who is contemplating suicide.     The lyrics grab a hold of you and embraces the listener and fills them with a light of hope. The vocals carry such raw emotion as they plead with the listener to Let it Burn, and to feel the release of all those things that haunt them and created the sense of despair. It is empowering, uplifting and will be a true lifeline for some. Please take a listen and share the song with others who may need to  hear the message it brings.
