  • Best lyrics or parts of them

    There are many good lyrics from RA. Which song have your favourite lyrics or which means something special to you?

    No one leaves you
    When you live in their heart and mind
    And no one dies
    They just move to the other side
    When we're gone
    Watch the world simply carry on
    We live on laughing and in no pain
    We'll stay and be happy
    With those who have loved us today

    (Marillion - Estonia)

    I'm not sure if Rise Against have song which lyrics don't have special meaning for me. Maybe Anyway You Want It, but this song is good too.
    When I'm about to say which song from Rise Against is my best, I rly dunno. It's not problem with all my bands, elsewhere I have most favorite songs, but in case of Rise Against, I just can't decide. And this not dilema of two songs for example. I rly can't say which song of their all I like best. When I start to think about that, how I think about each song, I just memorize each lyrics, melody... And in that moment I'm sure that one is best, but then I move to another one, and that repeates.
    So I'm choosing song, which is actually playing by mine: The Approaching Curve. This part I rly like:

    "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.

  • My best song is "But Tonight We Dance" ;) I love it :) :*

    I love Everchanging, Blood To Bleed, Paper Wings, Blood-Red White and Blue..

    For some reason I really like Historia Calamitatum.

    "When it rains it pours like summer storms, and skies as grey as leaves
    the rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
    but the people laughed and swore that they'd restore
    the city piece by piece
    and then the clouds gave way, as if to agree:
    When it rains it pours"

  • "But Tonight We Dance"

    and lyrics

    "Tomorrow we might wake in servitude and silence
    I will give you everything if only you would have me
    Tomorrow we will sweat and toil,
    Our hands will quiver caked with soil,
    Tomorrow we'll give it one last chance,
    But tonight we dance,
    But tonight we dance!"

    I very love them! <3

  • "We've all been sorry, we've all been hurt
    But how we survive, is what makes us who we are"

    Survive

    No one leaves you
    When you live in their heart and mind
    And no one dies
    They just move to the other side
    When we're gone
    Watch the world simply carry on
    We live on laughing and in no pain
    We'll stay and be happy
    With those who have loved us today

  • Injection

    "Do you spend your days counting the hours you're awake,
    And when night covers the sky you find yourself doing the same.
    It's a burden, you've been bearing
    In spite of all your prayers,
    As a light turns off inside your heart,
    Can you remember what it's like to care?"

  • so many brilliant lyrics from this band its hard to choose...
    a few of my favs are:
    "its not the end i fear with each breath, its life that scares me to death"
    "a hero of war, is that what they see, just medals and scars, so damn proud of me"
    "years we spent teaching a lesson we ourselves haad never learned"
    "i searched for love in an empty world but all i found was hate"
    and so many more....

    CLICK HERE!......you won't regret it ;)
  • Tip the scales

    Are we so alone,
    So distant,
    So forgotten,
    As we think ourselves to be?

    These are our lives
    But did they ever even matter?
    Are we worth remembering?

    These machines feed on the tears
    of broken lives and dying dreams
    We’re throwing wrenches in the gears
    Our lives will not be lived in vain

    When this is all said and done
    We spent this life on the run
    Judged by the company we keep

    No one leaves you
    When you live in their heart and mind
    And no one dies
    They just move to the other side
    When we're gone
    Watch the world simply carry on
    We live on laughing and in no pain
    We'll stay and be happy
    With those who have loved us today

    "All because of you I believe in angels.
    Not the kind with wings, no not the kind with halos"

    "I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
    but we've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world"

    "It's not the end that i fear with each breath,
    it's life that scares me to death"

    "simply because you can breathe,
    doesn't mean you're alive, or that you really live"

    "These lives we live test negative for happiness"
    "If theres no war outside our heads, why are we losing?"

    ...and many others!

  • Let me see:

    My Heart Inside Your Heart

    "I'm still dreaming
    I'm still waiting
    I'm still sure
    (I'm still sure)
    You're still living in a life
    That isn't yours
    (That isn't yours)
    And this is part of me
    I hope you never see
    This is my life inside your heart"

    Voicess Off Camera

    "The heart is something you can't control
    We either choose to follow or be left on our own
    So we're leaving here on a less-travelled road
    As desperate cries grow louder, I know we're getting close, getting close"

    Life Less Frightening

    "Is there a God tonight
    Up in the sky
    Or is it empty just like me? (Just like me)
    A place where we can hide
    Out from the night
    Where you are all I see (Where you are all I see)
    So blow a kiss goodbye then close your eyes
    Tell me what you see (Tell me what you see)
    A lifetime spent inside this dream of mine
    Where you are all I see"

    Gethsamane

    "Believe in me and I will believe in you
    You're asking of me everything
    so I'll give it all to you

    Someone stop my mind from screaming
    It's so loud I can't her myself think
    Life, Death, Religion, Survival
    It makes no sense
    Never try to tell me that I'm a coincidence"

    From Survive:

    "Somewhere between happy, and total fucking wreck."

    From Collapse (Post-Amerika):

    "When air that we breathe becomes air that we choke."

  • Strength to go on

    What we are is the sum of the 1000 lies
    What we know is almost nothing at all
    What we are we are till the day we die or till we don't have strength to go on

    "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"

    So meaningful!

    often it's only a sentence, that amazes me

    like:
    "I got no more blood to bleed"
    "Whe i do i dream of drowning in the ocean"
    "i watched you fly on paper wings"

  • Paper Wings

    "Is this the life that you lead?
    Or the life that's left for you?
    Will you take the road that's been laid out before you
    Will we cross paths somewhere else tonight"

  • Worth dying for

    ''I'm moving slow, like a glavier melting
    Watch me dissipate
    I searched for love in an empty world, but all i found was hate''

    My favourite :).

  • - The strenght to go on:
    ...what we are is the sum of 1000 lies
    What we know is olmost nothing at all
    But we are what we are until the day we die
    Or until we don't have the strenght to go on...

    - survive:
    ...We've all been sorry,we've all been hurt
    But how we survive makes us what we are...

    - halfway there:
    ... When enough is enough that's when you know your halfway there....
    (this part I had super long in my nickname for msn :P)

    - Like the angels:
    ...Like the angel you are
    you laugh, creating a lightness in my chest
    your eyes they panatrate me...

    -Blood red, white and blue:
    ...So pride yourself on what you are
    hold them all to words they can't take back
    i've seen a place (it comes) to me in dreams
    where fires die but light still shines for us to see...

    -Amber changing:
    ...No time that i'd rather be than right here, right now
    let's just pretend
    let's just pretend
    tonight will never end...

    - Paper wings:
    ... I can(t tell if your laughing
    between each smile there's a tear in your eye
    there's a train leaving town in a hour
    It's not waiting for you, and neither am I...

    ....I tried, you win
    My life, is ripping your heart out and destroying my pain!
    go!...
    (korn-lies)
  • I really like the opening to Give it All

    "Break through the undertow, your hands I can't seem to find. Pollution burns my tongue cough words I can't scream so I stop my struggling then I float to the surface, fill my lungs with air then let it out. I Give it All!"

  • Survive

    This is my favorite part [ :

    ...We've all been sorry,we've all been hurt
    But how we survive makes us what we are...

    Because I think this is the trueness

    I think Tim is simply the best songwriter. But Billy Talent has really good lyrics, too.
    Anyway, these are my favourite lyrics at the moment.

    The Good Left Undone

    "I believe in angels, not the kind with wings, no, not the kind with halos,
    the kind that bring you home, when home becomes a strange place..."

    Black Masks and Gasoline

    "Simply because you can breath, doesn't mean your alive, or that you really live..."

    Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated
    "When I die, will they remember not, what I did, but what I haven't done?
    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..."

    Swing Life Away
    "If love is a labor I'll slave till the end..."

    Survive
    "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..."

    Rise Against has the best lyrics of all. These are special for me ;]

    The good left undone:
    "All because of you I believe in angels.
    Not the kind with wings, no not the kind with halos"

    Behind closed doors:
    "Standing no chance to win but,
    We're not running, we're not running"

    Hero of war:
    "And when i come home
    they'll be damn proud of me"

    Savior:
    "It kills me not to know this but I've all but just forgotten
    What the color of her eyes were and her scars or how she got them"

    Under the knife:
    "To get up off me knees and,
    Follow the path of most resistant
    How ever it takes us,
    Whatever it faces and wherever it leads"

    i love roadside cuz... i dont know♫ :zippy:

    Tell me what I'm supposed to do,
    With all these left over feelings of you;
    'Cause I don't know

    And tell me how I'm supposed to feel,
    When all these nightmares become real;
    'Cause I don't know

  • Long Forgotten sons

    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.
