"The Lost & Sacred" is the final track that RIP recorded for their full-length album, which was set to release in Spring 2015. The band left the studio in Sept 2014 and released the single in early January of 2015. RIOT In Paradise announced their break up to the public in Oct 2014 and would like to thank everyone for their encouragement and continued support throughout the years!


May you never lose your hope. Together we all cry out to the world with dreams that never die!

These are the nights that we ponder, where we're meant to be. We are the lost and the sacred crawling on our knees. With each new night we go searching for our feet, are we aimlessly wandering?
Why is life such a mystery?

I wish I knew , will we ever truly know why we were placed here , and where we are supposed to go?
Will we find a purpose, Is there one to be found in the midst of everything?Is this why I breathe?
Is this the reason why I breathe?

To the lost and the sacred, the hungry and the weak. To the ones that keep searching for their feet. May you find strength from within you, may you keep on wandering down this path of uncertainty. Through guessing for your purpose and longing for the need to understand who you are, may you see who you're meant to be.

We found purpose in our lonesome poetry, the pages we wrote in blood. Bleeding from within, trying to complete the moments that have come and gone. It all becomes so meaningless to me when the path behind us fades in uncertainty...

It all becomes so meaningless to me when the steps behind us remain a mystery. It all becomes so meaningless to me. We are trying to complete our lives never giving up (never give up!) on the lives that we lead, so empty and meaningless. It all becomes so meaningless to me.
