Do You Call My Name Lyrics - Ra

Review The Song (14)



(kill me with a beat )


Some people seem to think they always know what's best for you
Their little minds try to create a world to keep you still
The bolt is thrown, the cage is locked
You saw this, don't you lie
At first you cry and then you hate those people stole your will...

Do as you are told and maybe then they'll let you out
You might be dead and cold, you might be full of doubt
Don't try to escape cuz you don't have nowhere to go
If nothing is your fate... there's no scenario
No nothing

Do you call my name
Do you stain my brain
My eyes are blurry and I can't see you anymore
Do you call my name
Do you breed my pain
My heart is bloody and I can't take it anymore

So you just sit there, stuck, afraid to risk reality
Afraid to cause yourself more pain, to face insanity
But nothing ventured, nothing gained
You see... your fear's your cage
You beg for help but you're alone, stuck in a helpless rage

Do as you are told and maybe then they'll let you out
You might be dead and cold, you might be full of doubt
Don't try to escape cuz you don't have nowhere to go
If nothing is your fate... there's no scenario
(it's me.... I see, please... let me out I'm petrified)

Do as you are told and maybe then they'll let you out
You might be dead and cold, you might be full of doubt
Don't try to escape cuz you don't have nowhere to go
If nothing is your fate... there's no scenario
(C'mon)

Do you call my name
Do you stain my brain
My eyes are blurry and I can't see you anymore
Do you call my name
Do you breed my pain
My heart is bloody and I can't take it anymore

Life Saver | Reviewer: DJ Black Space | 2/2/11

I think this is one of the random songs that embodies my mind, personality, and past most... This is probably the case for many... But this is one of the few songs I have ever cried to due to an overwhelming emotional connection. My life with my father was made up of dark days... He emotionally and mentally scarred me. When I was diagnosed with Manic Depression he refused to let me seek psychiatric help fearing that he would be implicated. Treated me with disgust because I wanted the things he wanted me to be. I ended up with a battery charge at 15 where it was "discovered" that I had anger issues and depression. He embarassed me in front of his friends, my friends, random strangers, my therapist, even random strangers. If I hadn't gotten a grip on myself I would probably be a vastly different person... This song helped me cope because it "understood" me. I can't express my gratitude enough. And knowing that it helps others makes me happy. I hope everyone who hears this will be comforted by the knowledge that they aren't alone...



I agree with the last two (especially "patrick") | Reviewer: Ryan | 1/5/11

I can drink to that. I'm 21, been living on my own for 19 years and my parents blackmail me to keep me living under their rules. They raised me to believe that I can't trust anyone; now I've recently started to doubt my friends. I've also built up a distrust over the years due to school staff's bullying and my job accusing me of shit I never did. Lots of anger built up inside, and almost got fired this morning.
To be professional, it's great music. Cool how they use the scales to work with the melodies. It's a different sound, no doubt, especially with the heavy riffs. Singer's got powerful and neat vocals, too.



Empowering for Introverts | Reviewer: Matthew Gonzales | 2/28/09

I like this song. I have trouble with authority is why.

For instance. I go to college so I can get a good career. Yet it feels more like society has forced me do something my heart isn't into. This gives me courage to relax and remember that life is more than taking social norms. It lets me breath and sounds good at the same time.



wow i love this song | Reviewer: patrick | 7/8/08

it's a great song and i can really relate to it. my parents try to control my life and make me live by their believes instead of my own and it really pisses me off. and zylo's right, each song is about the artist not us so we should look at it from their perspectives too.



The truth | Reviewer: Jeremy | 7/3/08

When i first heard this song....my ex turned me on to it..... it fits her... her parents hold her within a locked cell....distorting and destroying any hope that she could have had of living a life outside of their own narrow sighted visions of what HER life should be... They destroyed our relationship..and pretty much semblance of the live we tried to creat as a couple.. I have never seen a song describ someone so perfectly.



kick ass addictive | Reviewer: Zylo | 1/30/08

heard this song on the radio and looked up the lyrics when I read them and when I heard them they just fit my life love it this is my favoritre song and btw each artist put part of himself into his art but each viewer sees a part of himself within the art, not the artist

signed just bacon 4 brains

Ra | Reviewer: Natali | 12/17/07

A child locked within ignorance. People would lie to the child to make up a life that doesn't exist. They try to control who you are and who you become, but finally the child loses it and forgets who is who, creating a cynic. They generalize and blame everyone for what a few did. That is my interpretation of this song. The artist wrote one thing, he meant it one way, but to millions, it's another story. Your interpretation?



RA | Reviewer: Natali | 12/17/07

Someone locked within ignorance, wanting to live their own life. People controlling it for them, not letting them see the truth. The ignorance begins to fade and you begin to hate those who've tried to control a life they shouldn't be meddling with. You become a cynic and hate the world for the actions of a few.

That is my interpretation of this song.



The Meaning | Reviewer: Alina | 12/1/07

Sahaj Ticotin (Ra's vocalist) says that this song is actually about manic depression/bipolar disorder. He explained that the pre-chorus is about how society views the illness and the chorus is how the person suffering from it feels.

"So you just sit there, stuck, afraid to risk reality
Afraid to cause yourself more pain, to face insanity
But nothing ventured, nothing gained"

It makes so much sense now that I know! I thought it'd be something interesting to share :)



Football | Reviewer: nightmair0 | 11/3/07

i was introduced to this band through football, we ran out to this song and it got me so pumped, Ra is just a sic band and they are amazing, i cant get enough now
