Rise Above It Lyrics
Another couple kids with their heads on top
Just another stranger, just another plot
Another track home where the city streets stop
Just another kid with another bored cop

Just another lemon into lemonade job
Just another rust and dust facade
Just another key stuck broken in the lock
Just another scarecrow choking on a cough, oh, come on

It feels so typical, I guess I'm looking for a miracle
Rise above it, yeah, rise above it
I don't care what they're telling me, we could be what we wanna be
Rise above it, rise above it

Listen up loud, listen up, listen here
Just because you're running doesn't mean that you're scared
Just because it's law don't mean it is fair
Never let another tell your soul what to fear

Here we go again, give it one more try
Don't believe the system's on your side
Just another lover turned enemy fight
Just another blood and nicotine sky, come on

It feels so typical, I guess I'm looking for a miracle
Rise above it, yeah, rise above it
I get so sick of it, it feels so counterfeit
I'll rise above it, rise above it, alright

Hear our voices rise, hear our battle cry
We've been under the curse with our arms raised high
Hear us sing tonight like the last night on earth
We will rise like the tide, like dead men coming back to life
We are rising, rising

Turn it up now, listen loud and clear
Just because you're present doesn't mean that you're here
Oh, come on

It feels so typical, I guess I'm looking for a miracle
Rise above it, yeah, rise above it
The curse is broken, the system's broken
Rise above it, yeah, rise above it

Let's rise above it
We can rise above it
Let's rise above it, yeah, yeah
Rise above it, let's rise above it
