The single best alternative/punk band in a long time. Their lyrics are heartfelt and actually have meaning.
"On clearer days I can see the lights from my bedroom door,
on windy nights I can smell the lake as it drifts to me from the shore. The traffic lights silently change a thousand times a day, but I'm still waiting, yeah, and I'm still waiting.
And if my hand could block the sun,
would we ever wake up? And if I turned back all these clocks, would that be time enough?" - Rise Against
