The way Rise Against evolves the lyrics of their songs to make the original chorus sort of negative but the final verse is a message that things get better despite everything that is against you. It’s such a subtle yet amazingly inspiring form of writing and it’s part of why Rise Against is my favorite band of all time.
In case anyone was wondering what song is playing in my head today.
"Life is about love, last minutes and lost evenings,
About fire in our bellies and furtive little feelings,
And the aching amplitudes that set our needles all a-flickering,
And help us with remembering that the only thing that’s left to do is live.”
Hi, I’m Scabby. I love music, dogs, hoodies, Ninja Turtles, fonts, and great ideas. Rise Against is my favorite band but I love many others too. I have three pugs named Butters, Noodles, and Jelly, and they have their own blog: buttersandnoodles.tumblr.com/
