Lyrics[]

All I see is shattered pieces I can't keep it hidden like a secret I can't look away! From all this pain in a world we made!

Everyday you need a bulletproof vest to save yourself from what you could never guess! Am I safe today? When I step outside in the wars we wage!

Our future's here and now, here comes the countdown!

Sound it off, this is the call! Rise and revolution! It's our time to change it all, rise and revolution! Unite and fight, to make a better life! Everybody one for all, sound off, this is the call, tonight, we rise!

Rise. Tonight, we rise! Rise. Tonight, we rise!

Like a hand grenade, thrown in a hurricane, spinning in chaos, trying to escape the flame, yesterday is gone! Faster than the blast of a car bomb!

And when the scars heal, the pain passes, as hope burns, we rise from the ashes! Darkness fades away! And a light shines on a brave new day!

Our future's here and now, here comes the countdown!

Sound it off, this is the call! Rise and revolution! It's our time to change it all, rise and revolution! Unite and fight, to make a better life! Everybody one for all, sounds off, this is the call, tonight, we rise!

Rise. Tonight, we rise! Rise. Tonight, we rise!

In a world gone mad, in a place so sad! Sometimes it's crazy To fight for what you believe! But you can't give up, if you wanna keep what you love! (Keep what you love) (Keep what you love) (Keep what you love) (Keep what you love) Never give up, no!

Rise. Rise and revolution Rise. Rise and revolution

Everybody one for all, sounds off, this is the call!

Rise. Like we're alive Tonight, we rise! Make a better life Tonight, we rise!

Rise, rise, rise and revolution Rise, rise, rise and revolution Rise.

(phone rings) Operator: 911? Woman: There's a guy here with a gun! Operator: Ma'am? Ma'am? Woman: Kids, get under the table! Kids get under the table!

News reporter: We are getting reports from all around the globe, showing the highest unemployment rates since the end of World War II. Many are losing their jobs, their homes, and in many cases, their hope.

Dispatcher: Unit 631... Dispatch possible ... 215 Domestic Disturance in progress at Foxhill Circle North ... 10 23, over

Upset parent: You are such a failure! What is wrong with you? You can't do anything right! I wish you had never been born!

Meaning[]

Rise is about standing up to the bad things in life, whether it be abuse, sin, past mistakes, or this messed up world. Rise states that you should "fight for what you believe."
