Lyrics

Post by Survivor of Violence on Sat Jul 07, 2012 6:37 pm

Rise Against have really awesome lyrics. my favorite is Approaching Curve cos i have never heard something as hard as this one:

The music played with a calming frequency.
The speakers gently seeped the sound of ambient keyboards and light percussion,
Creating a seductive soundtrack to our midnight drive through curtains of blackness.
The windows were cold to the touch,
Reflecting the icy conditions in our immediate extremity.
Salt stains and fingerprints littered the glass,
And streaks of melting snow cascaded down its length.
The music pulsed louder, yet gentle,
Like the far away squeal of a pot of boiling water.
The skyline was glowing faintly with vague hints of an impending dawn.
The car raced along a painfully straight stretch of road,
And she hadn't so much as turned the steering wheel two degrees in the last twenty minutes
Nor had we spoken.

As we were, so perfect, so happy.
They'll remember, only our smiles 'cause that's all they've seen.
Long since dried, when we are found, are the tears in which we had drowned.
As we were, so perfect, so happy.

[Spoken:]
"Why are you doing this?" she spoke as if not expecting a response.
Her voice penetrated the still air of our speechless drive,
So suddenly that my heart had jumped.
"I'm not doing anything," I said, but I didn't even believe that myself.
"This is what's best, for me, for you, for us," or maybe just for me I thought,
As a tear formed in the pit of her eye.
The music poured through the speakers and we were losing ourselves in the cadence.
She looked down momentarily and closed her eyes for a bit longer than a standard blink.
Then she was crying. Then she was shouting. Then I was shouting,
Now pouring confessions, having no answers, or solutions,
We barely even knew the questions.

As we were, so perfect, so happy.
They'll remember, only our smiles 'cause that's all they've seen.
Long since dried, when we are found, are the tears in which we had drowned.
As we were, so perfect, so happy.

Don't put me underground, I was meant for a life somewhere else.
Please, love, give me the wheel, before both of our hearts you
Will steal tonight (will steal tonight).

As we were, so perfect, so happy.
They'll remember, only your smiles 'cause that's all they've seen.
Long since dried, when we are found, are the tears in which we had drowned.
As we were, so perfect, so happy.

[Spoken:]
Our cracking voices became part of the music.
The car pressed on faster through the night. As our voices lowered,
The cadence again overtook the air.
Up ahead there was a curve approaching.
She made no indications of slowing.

Rumors of My Demise is definitely the most powerful song RA have made lyrics-wise in my opinion. Here's my favourite lines:


So please don't ask me how
I ended up at my wits end
And breaking down
Pages torn from books we never read,
Cause we're plugged into this grid.
Don't pull this plug right now,
Or then we'd really have to live.

It's not the end that I fear with each breath
It's life that scares me to death.

When we built these dreams on sand
How they all slipped through our hands
This might be our only chance
Let's take this one day at a time
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
The time that we kill keeps us alive.

Your words won't save me now.
I'm at the edge feeling the sweat drip from my brow.
"Get a grip on yourself" is what they say,
Every hour, every day.
Hands over my ears,
I've been screaming all these years!

Hiding from the laughter in the closets of our lives,
But the door hinges are squeaking letting in thin shards of light.
And now a hand's extending outward,
Quiet comfort they invite,
Do we dare take what they offer?
Do we step into the light?

Survive ahhhh

Somewhere between happy, and total fucking wreck
Feet sometimes on solid ground, sometimes at the edge
To spend your waking moments, simply killing time
Is to give up on your hopes and dreams, to give up on your...

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are

An obvious disinterest, a barely managed smile
A deep nod in agreement, a status quo exile
I shirk my obligations, I miss all your deadlines
I excel at quitting early, and fucking up my life

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are

It's all smiles and sunshine, a perfect world on a perfect day
Everything always works out, I have never felt so fucking great
It's all smiles and sunshine, a perfect world on a perfect day
Everything always works out, I have never felt so great

(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this) Life isn't like this
(Life isn't like this) Life isn't like this
(Life isn't like this) Are we verging on an answer,
Or fucking up our...

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are

(Who we are)
It's what makes us who we are
(Who we are)
Makes us who we are
(Who we are)
It's what makes us who we are
(Who we are)

my favorite part of Like The Angel:

Like the angel you are, you laugh creating
A lightness in my chest,
Your eyes they penetrate me,
(Your answer's always 'maybe')
That's when I got up and left

I know I already posted this, but I want to put emphasis on this verse:

Hiding from the laughter in the closets of our lives,
But the door hinges are squeaking letting in thin shards of light.
And now a hand's extending outward,
Quiet comfort they invite,
Do we dare take what they offer?
Do we step into the light?

Tim may be the best lyricist with imagery I've heard of, especially in punk. This verse just creates an image in my mind, it's sends chills down my spine each time just reading it.

i really love Tim's way of thinking:

According to McIlrath, although the lyrics discuss grim topics, they actually take on a positive view and were written from the perspective of: "What if the place on the other side of this transition is a place we'd all rather be living in?"

Broken Mirrors:

Hey, man did you hear Your final days are near?
A free fall of fire and ice And explosions in the sky
A fate that we deserve
There's no escaping
No it's your turn
Now it's your turn

It's been years
Since our luck ran out and left us here
Like broken mirrors Ten million shards of glass and tears
But now we are Awake enough to shatter what we hate
Like broken mirrors Reflections of an unfamiliar face
Hey, hey!

Hey, man, you got the time?
Hey, can I trouble you for a light
No, me? no, I'm not the old town crier
I'm the one who sets it all on fire
A fate that we deserve
And there's no escaping
No, it's your turn Now it's your turn

It's been years
Since our luck ran out and left us here
Like broken mirrors Ten million shards of glass and tears
But now we are Awake enough to shatter what we hate
Like broken mirrors Reflections of an unfamiliar face

We hide from the mirrors They might show our scars
And there is a Reflection that we want to be
The people we are (the people we are)
Find your reflection Smash what you see
And let's restart 'Cause mirrors can't see our heart

It's been years
Since our luck ran out and left us here
Like broken mirrors Ten million shards of glass and tears
But now we are Awake enough to shatter what we hate
Like broken mirrors Like broken mirrors
Like broken mirrors Like broken mirrors Like broken mirrors
Reflections of an unfamiliar face

Wait For Me is so awesome!

Do you see the world in different colors?
Do you see the world in black and gray?
Alone in your thoughts
How many others have stood where you stand
Where you stand today?
I've stood where you stand
But all, can you...

Wait for me now?
Take off this crown
To break all these vows
Don't you know?
Wait for me now
The airs running out
Wait for me, wait for me
Wait for me, wait for me now

The promise of safe return undelivered
The ocean is wider than I first guessed
When roads disappeared, I followed the rivers
But somehow got in over my head
So deep I felt taken

Wait for me now
Take off this crown
To break all these vows
Don't you know?
Wait for me now
The airs running out
Wait for me, wait for me
Wait for me, wait for me now

A lost dream of what could have been
A house on fire, a tangled web
The key turns to find the locks have changed
In time to hear the back door slam
A sound that to this day I can't forget
The colors drained to black and gray
Oh...

Wait for me now
Take off this crown
To break all these vows
Don't you know?
Wait for me now
The airs running out
Wait for me, wait for me
Wait for me, wait for me now

this is so true:

Are there no fighters left here anymore?
Are we the generation we've been waiting for?
Are we patiently burning, waiting to be saved?

Our heroes are icons that mellow with age
Following rules that they once disobeyed
They're now being lead when they used to lead the way

Re: Lyrics

Post by Survivor of Violence on Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:17 am

the song about me being forced to give up living but i'm not gonna let go:

Chairs thrown and tables toppled,
Hands armed with broken bottles,
Standing no chance to win but,
We're not running, we're not running.

There's a point I think we're missing,
It's in the air we raise our fists in,
In the smiles we cast each other,
My sister, my brother.

About the time we gave up hoping
We'd ever find these locks still open,
Stumbling on stones unturned,
The hurt we feel, we all have earned.

The lines we cross in search of change,
But all they see is treason.

Although we have no obligation to stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive
(Break out) I won't be left here
Behind closed doors.

Bonfires burn like beacons,
Guiding the lost and weakened.
Flames dance on crashing waves,
Guiding ships who've gone astray

Time out, let's stop and think this through,
We've all got better things to do,
Than talk in circles, run in place,
Answers {are} inches from our face.

Although we have no obligation to stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive
(Break out) I won't be left here
Behind closed doors.

Black eyes, broken fingers,
Blood drips and I let it run
Down my lips into my swollen gums.
When hope is non-existent,
Our instincts all scream "Run",
We never turn our backs or even bite our tongues.

Although we have no obligation to stay alive
On broken backs we beg for mercy, we will survive
(Break out) I won't be left here
Behind closed doors.

I was gonna take a specific verse from Alive and Well, but reading over the whole thing is so much better:

Now's the time
To rearrange your life
Live for something
Outside of your own mind
We all dream
The same dream every night
To burn the world that you call civilized

Alive and well
I live to be alive
And I live to always strive
For something more
Alive and well
I'll never understand
The who, what, why or when
Of you tonight...

We face the stares of judgement
And almost everyday
The shaking heads
Of disapproval say,
"pray for you to give me something
Then find out that there was nothing else."

Alive and well
I live to be alive
And I live to always strive
For something more
'cause I'm alive and well
I'll never understand
The who, what, why or when
Of you tonight...

Recite the words inside
Realize that this is nothing
Without your voice
I'm not giving up
Not giving up
Not giving up
And I'll blame the worst on you
I know what's wrong

Alive and well
I live to be alive
And I live to always strive
For something more
'cause I'm alive and well
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
And I don't need to explain
Myself to you
Myself to you

The thing I love about Rise Against is that they can include lyrics with strong political meaning as well as strong personal meaning. Example; Generation Lost.

i need to read it carefully

Getting trampled under boots of progress
Ignore the pleading of the nameless faces
Now with our backs against the wall
How long 'til we fall?

Do away with all the underprivileged
Demographic doesn't fit your image
Turn your blind eye, when duty calls
How long 'til we fall?

(In with the new) This is something that you can't ignore
A simple thing worth fighting for
'Cause now they're tearing down our doors

So she screams out the window
I've had it up to here so sick and tired of wondering
Where I'll be next year

Caring less about the homeless millions
All the petty problems that go with them
Reap the profit that reaps their lives and
Tell me that it's fine

Throw them out and call it relocation
Lower income housing quick solution
A generation lost
(In with the new) This Is something that you can't ignore
A simple thing worth fighting for
'Cause now they're tearing down our doors

So she screams out the window
I've had it up to here so sick and tired of wondering
Where I'll be next year

Now in the whirlwind of my life
Is where you presently reside
Can I pretend you don't exist
Maybe just for ten more minutes?
My heart's been broken into two

And rusted from years of disuse
So will you place upon it your hands
And will you help it beat again?
It seems the whole world's turned on me (Bound and gagged)

In the land of the free
Let's talk this over, this game is over
In with the new, out with the old
Hearts of the world have grown so cold
This game is over, let's talk this over

lolol one of my favorites smile

Buried words
Under lights
Soundtrack to this stagnant life
This meaning lost in translation
Message sucked out of his hands again

This could be my great awakening
But how would I know
Cuz it's all noise to me
Are these words falling on deaf ears?

Staring at the empty stares
Realize that he no longer cares about the wrong or right
The downward spiral begins tonight

And this could be my great awakening
But how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
Are these words falling on deaf ears?

This could be my great awakening
But how would I know cuz it's all noise to me
(nothing I can do will make you hear)

i agree with this. ive always thought he always had a clever way of managing to relate politics to a persons personal life. it just adds to the fact that politics affect everybody

I'd like to highlight the quote from my sig (Generation Lost):

Caring less about the homeless millions
All the petty problems that go with them
Reap the profit that reaps their lives and
Tell me that it's fine
Throw them out and call it relocation
Lower income housing quick solution

So true and powerful.

Generation Lost is a fucking amazing song. So yeah, amazing how they can combine political with personal.

Not that i ignore the political, i love it. but lately this part has been stuck in my head:
And so she screams out the window:
I've had it up to here
So sick and tired
of wondering where I'll be next year

Because really. I'm fed up with being here, and i'm fucking sick and tired of wondering every day where i will be next year, as i will be graduating and leaving.

But yeah, the entire song is freaking brilliant.
Like all their songs, really

to me it's this part:
Throw them out and call it relocation
Lower income housing quick solution
A generation lost

my favorite part off Long Forgotten Sons:

When cries for help go unanswered
And signal fires just burn and burn
We'll wonder if we're waiting here for nothing

'Cause our lips are sewn, our ears are filled
With the constant drone of the unfulfilled
But we'll never fall if we stand for something
We stand for something, yeah

my favorite and so simple words:

would God bless a murder of the innocents?
would God bless a war based on pride?
would God bless a money-hungry government? no.

would God bless our ineffective court system?
God bless the sweatshops we run.
God bless America.
God bless America.

my favorite from elective amnesia are:

Glowing screens simulate
Lives that no longer take place
Can this be what we've become?
Paper-thin, overweight
Pills to arouse or sedate
Still we don't know what we want

and the first line may not be correct..its different on every website

i think good ones from this are:
Don't fall, I see lights in the distance, they're not far away
Stand up because the sky is turning gray
There's hope in these footsteps of persistence
So don't go astray, these lights get closer everyday

Haha. I can't really think of more parts to quote. All their songs are just too fucking good.

Haha. Tim is a genius. I don't think I'll ever be able to fully appreciate any other band. I just... I'll always compare the lyrics to Rise Against's, and well... other bands will always fall short.

one of the best lyrics.

Hold on, slow down, again from the top now
And tell me everything I know
I've been gone for, what seems like forever
But I'm here now waiting

To convince you that I'm not a ghost or a stranger
But closer than you think
She said, "Just go on to what you
Pretend is your life but, please don't die on me"

Wings won't take me
Heights don't faze me
So take a step
But don't look down, take a step

Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but
I could be wrong
I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall

Perpetual motion, the image won't focus
A blur is all that's seen
But here in this moment, like the eye of a storm
It all came clear to me

I found a shoulder to lean on
An infallible reason to live all by itself
I took one last look
From the heights that I once loved
And then I ran like hell

Wings won't take me
Heights don't faze me
So take a step
But don't look down, take a step

Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall

I count the times that I've been sorry
(I know, I know) Now my compassion slowly drowns (I know, I know)

If there's a time these walls could guard you
(I know, I know) Then let that time be right now

Now I'm standing on the rooftop
Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall

Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
Now I'm standing on the rooftop, ready to fall
