Rise Against Quotes

cratermaker123
Possibly the most quotable band of all time, Rise Against's lyrics are what make them the band they are. Every song is filled to the brim with genius quotes begging to be repeated again and again. It's a daunting question, it's one that must be answered; What are Rise Against's best lyrical moments?

The Top TenXW

1Life for you's been less than kind, so take a number and stand in line. We've all been sorry we've all been hurt, but how we survive is what makes us who we are - Survive

This song the lyrics are off, speaks so much to me. Whenever I feel down I remember, that there are so many bad times in a life. But in the end it all comes down to the way you survive. Because it shows you, what you can do. That you are not weak. That nobody is weak. Because we all have been through our personal hell or will have to face it. Still: We can survive, because we are not alone. We can survive. We will survive and this is clearly what makes us, who we are. So if you are feeling down, don't give up. You can do this!

This Quote shows that we have all had sufferings and hardships that differ from each others, But our difference with other members of our society is how we handle or face these challenges, wether we just leave them be or take action.

This song has helped me so much through these past few years. Whenever I feel like crap and that nothing goes my way, I listen to this song. I live by these lyrics each and every day of my life, and now I have it tattooed on my back and it will stick with me for the rest of my life.

I find that this quote is the most uplifting lyric the guys in Rise Against have ever written. It basically explains that everyone goes through dark times in their lives, but it's the impact that they leave on you which helps carve your own identity.

2All because of you 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 - The Good Left Undone

Just think of the first person you fell in love with that broke your heart - cratermaker123

Just reading this lyric gives me chills, not to mention singing it out loud! Though RA has so many great lyrics it is hardly fair to say that this is the best one.

This lyric...That person that saved you from yourself - they weren't perfect but they picked up the pieces of you when you had nothing left to give and helped out you back together.

Hits home; very relatable. Anyone that's had to say goodbye to someone they truly loved would understand.

3A hero of war is that what they see? Just medals and scars, so damn proud of me. And i brought home that flag, now it gathers dust. But it's the flag that I love, it's the only thing I trust

Think of how much this relates to modern day issues with war. We are still fighting in Iran and Iraq after 10 years (I am maybe wrong, not that updated on current events). All the horrible things people are put through in war, yet our country praised and awards the deed of killing another person. We are all people, no one should forget that. We can only win the human race together, and Rise Against hits these opinions of mine in the bulls-eye.

Sadly one of the most misunderstood songs ever

Everyone dreams of living in the U.S., but when we are out to war we kill innocent human beings that don't deserve to be threatened.

Don't say damn

4That's when she said I don't hate you boy I just want to save you, while there's still something left to save. That's when told her I love you girl, but I'm the answer for the questions that you still have. - Savior

I think the "girl" is mother nature trying to save "him" which is the human race.

I really love that part of the song

There are situations in which both have feelings for each other but one (in this case 'she') only wants to save 'him' and feels empathy for him but not love. Onesided love ending in a hurtful situation where nobody gets out without a broken heart.

5Do you still believe in all the things that you stood by before? Are you out there in the front lines or at home keeping score?

Would you care to be the layer of the bricks that seal your fate, or would you rather be the Architect of what we might create?

Architects this is such a good song that I just wanted to post that but the stupid comment quality thing made me keep typing

Thinking about getting this phrase as a tattoo. I'm kind of having a hard time figuring out wheter it should be placed on my ribs (right side) or neck.

6And I can't tell if you're laughing, between each smile there's a tear in your eye. There's a train leaving town in an hour, It's not waiting for you, and neither am I - Paper Wings

Why is there No more older songs? Rumors Of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated has 5 or 6 great quotes in itself, so does Black Masks and Gasoline. This list just gives the more mainstream songs, even though The Good Left Undone has beene favorite song for years. Great list if you barely know Rise Against. Where is Swing Life Away and Everchanging?

7Is this the life that you lead, or the life that's lead for you? Will you take the road that's been laid out before you? Will we cross paths somewhere else tonight?
8Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall, I think I'm at the edge now, but I could be wrong
9If strength is born from heartbreak, then mountains I could move - Drones

Some people feel so bad from a broken heart, and when they get up, they comeback more strong. Some enter in depression, others kill themselves, and those who raise their faces and try again to find love aren't weak or coward, they're very strong. I can say this by myself... Had 9 heartbreaks in my whole 15 years of life... Had an horrible depression, and this quote speaks to me. I just continued, no matter how difficult it was, or even would be. Now I have find myself the person that I love and loves me, even that she's very far on another city, we continue our romance, no matter how bad things are.

Drones is, by far, my favorite. Perfect example of mindless drones that most Americans have become!

One of my favorite quotes from Rise Against

10And too much blood has flown from the wrists of children shames for those they chose to kiss. - Make It Stop (September's Children)

It just hits so hard, One of my best friends was Bi, and committed suicide from all the bullying.

This is the saddest and one of the most important things. I'm so thankful for Rise Against

Rise Against gives a voice to the voiceless.

The Contenders

11Go on alone, cause i won't follow. This isn't giving up, no this is letting go
12It's not the end that I fear with each breath, it's life that scares me to death.

Beautiful quote, speaks so much volume with so little words. I'm definitely using this for my senior quote next year in high school.

13I found a shoulder to lean on, an infalible reason to live all by itself. I took one last look from the heights that i once loved, and THEN I RAN LIKE HELL
14And don't you remember when we were young, and we wanted to set the world on fire? 'Cause I still am, and I still do. - Architects

Definitely the best part.

15Simply because you can breathe, doesn't mean that you're alive, or that you really live - Black Masks & Gasoline

These lyrics speak a sad truth that most people don't realize. If you only go through the motions and never go out do new things and explore. Your not really alive your mindlessly going through life.

Strong piercing words to those who think that they're living and doing the best things but deeply they're living a lie wasting their lifes

16Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words
17I miss the person that you were, but I don't miss you - Six Ways Till Sunday
18What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees - Survivor Guilt

"You had it backwards! Don't you know it's better to live on your feet, than to die on your knees." Gotta love those Catch 22 quotes.

Its correct. The line "Don't you know it's better to live on your feet, than to die on your knees" comes right after the other line meaning when compared to the first line that if you have the choice not to do it at all don't do it.

This personally is my favourite quote

19We'll never fall if we stand for something. - Long Forgotten Sons
20God bless the sweatshops we run - Blood Red, White and Blue

That part is so cynical, it makes me cry.
