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
Awesome punk band with great lyrics.
Rise against rawks.
One of the best punk bands ever. Awesome, heartfelt lyrics ranging from love to politics to life in general, loud punding voice and amazing drums.
the years unfold in one moment
the voices that we heard so loud
are now suddenly silenced
inside this crowd
and you're surrounded by the lives
of those who found something to hold
so bringing everybody down
is all you know
Awesome rock band from chicago, really cool, awesome/clever lyrics!
If I could paint how I feel
I'd draw a bullseye on your forehead
My anger's not misdirected
unless it somehow misses you
Is there a god tonight
up in the sky
or is it empty, just like me?
An AMAZING band!!! they rock!!!!
"I can't bear the thought of losing,
I dread the attention winning brings
and ever since the day I came here
I can stand without your strings
I'm so sick of all these people
but I'm scared to be alone
and if this life has taught me anything
I forgot it long ago" - voices off camera
"one last thing i beg you please just before you go. I've watched you fly on paper wings half way round the world, until they burned up in the atmosphere and sent you spiraling down. Landed somewhere far from here with no one else around, to catch you falling down and I'm looking at you now. And i cant tell if your laughing, between each smile theres a tear in your eye." - paper wings
"Am i loud and clear or am I breaking up? Am I still your charm or am I just bad luck? Are we getting closer or are we just getting more lost?" - swing life away
The best punk rock band ive heard.. CHECK IT OUT AND JOIN THE PUNK ROCKERS :D
Simply because you can breath,
doesnt mean your alive, or
that you really live.
This life has taken its toll
she just doesnt know how much more she can give.
Rise Against is an amazing New Age punk rock band, they sing about love, poitics and many other subjects with very inspired lyrics
"Countdown, to the very end, Equality, an invitation that we wont extend, Ready aim pull the trigger now, in time you firmly secure your place in hell" -State of the Union, Rise Against
awsome band with heartfilled and awsome lyrics.
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words......
we live on front porches and swing
life away, we get by just fine on a minimum wage
if love is a labour i'll slave to the end- i wont crss this street until you hold my hand!
