If life gives you lemons, you give them to the someone who cares.


Verse 1-
You push us down, we push you back
Make you feel your under attack
Why should we have rules when none obey
Everything gets worse when you don't pay
Attention All you so-called leaders
Maybe you should check the meter
Because our time is running short
While we despair, you hide in forts

Chorus-
Now's our time to take it back
From those who can't restrain the lack
Of everyone who's cold and dying
Of those who sacrifice their hiding
To save the ones who cannot see
Who cannot hear, who cannot breathe
To find some shred of hope in lies
As the next generation we will rise

Verse 2-
We stand here in the devastation
Caused by all you crippled nations
Who desperately make these unwise choices
They think will sate the hungry voices
Of rebels waiting for the call
To make the corrupt adults here fall

Chorus-
Now's our time to take it back
From those who can't restrain the lack
Of everyone who's cold and dying
Of those who sacrifice their hiding
To save the ones who cannot see
Who cannot hear, who cannot breathe
To find some shred of hope in lies
As the next generation we will rise

We will rise!
We Will Rise!
WE WILL RISE!

Bridge-
Our generals will lead us on
Of untold numbers we will spawn
To dig ourselves form underneath
Guns are loaded, knives unsheathed
We've heard the call we're ready now
To fight all the evil you allowed

Chorus-
Now's our time to take it back
From those who can't restrain the lack
Of everyone who's cold and dying
Of those who sacrifice their hiding
To save the ones who cannot see
Who cannot hear, who cannot breathe
To find some shred of hope in lies
As the next generation we will rise

We will rise!
We Will Rise!
WE WILL RISE!

Chorus-
Now's our time to take it back
From those who can't restrain the lack
Of everyone who's cold and dying
Of those who sacrifice their hiding
To save the ones who cannot see
Who cannot hear, who cannot breathe
To find some shred of hope in lies
As the next generation we will rise

I wrote this because my friend Brock introduced me to Rise Against, and this is like what they sing about, things going on that affect the world as a whole.
