Riot Lyrics - Three Days Grace



Review The Song (44)


If you feel so empty
So used up so let down
If you feel so angry
So ripped off so stepped on
You're not the only one
Refusing to back down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so filthy so dirty
so fucked up

If you feel so walked on
So painful so pissed off
You're not the only one
Refusing to go down
You're not the only one
So get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
Just get up

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot
Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

Let's start a riot, a riot
Let's start a riot

Dear People who are Unreasonably Pissed at People Who Listen to This Song to Vent:
No offense, but if you had all those confusing emotions in your body, unsure how exactly to soothe yourself, and desperate for just a nanosecond of reprieve, I'm sure you'd get why people listen to this song when they are mad, sad, upset, whatever. I'm sure that in your probably sheltered life of happiness ( and no, breaking up with or boyfriend or getting in a fight with a BFF is most likely NOT going to make you feel suicidal and mentally unstable... But hey, that's just me. Think whatever you wanna think.), you're thinking, "Oh, these people are so melodramatic. If they'd just calm down and think of starving children in Africa or something, they'd see how stupid they're acting!" BTW, my family comes from West Africa... And trust me, where we are, there are more starving children in America. Anyways ^^ I'm not saying that I've been through my parents dying or getting a divorce of whatever, but sometime a whole bunch of crap loads on you all at once and you feel really desperate. And I'd rather at least try and let out my anger through music or the arts than slitting my wrists. So please try and understand. Or at least stop freaking slandering us.
Sincerely, Me.

Guys there is nothing bad about this song. Its just saying if your at your point in life where you feel like complete and utter crap due to a situation, STOP COMPLAINING! This song is encouraging you to do better and make your life the way you want it. Its inspiration. It even says that "you're not the only one, refusing to back/go down, you're not the only one" which means your not the only one doing through a crappy situation. Some of you have to work on your song interpretation.

... Really? You're saying their lyrics are too simple and all they have going for them is their sound? I can partly agree, and understand fully, why you think the lyrics to "Riot" are simple, but really? All of their songs? You're so ignorant, really.

Rage-ahol | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/29/11

The only thing this band has going for them is their sound. Their lyrics are too simple and I feel I'm being too kind in saying they're comparative to raging alcoholics. There are several songs to express the same thing, but I suppose if you enjoy mindless rage-ahol then this is the perfect assistive expression of your similarly feeble minded anger.

WTF? | Reviewer: Matt | 5/22/11

Why are people hating on the people that use this song for when their depressed or angry?

This song was made to help people like that when they feel that way. So people can remember this and get up. So stop saying shit like this song isn't trying to say how fucked up the world is. Because no body said that. Yes they did listen to this when they feel like that. But not to hear more about how fucked up the world is. They listen to it to help them GET UP really all you haters are dumbasses.

Why do people say they can do the lyrics better?

Really?! I doubt any of you have any experience with making music. So why would you think you can do any better? Is it because you have a music career or your in a band? You know what im probably just being an idiot. Your probably laughing right now as you wipe your ass with money. PLZ FORGIVE ME! Plz post a link to your music so i can relise how stupid i am.

Pump this sht! | Reviewer: Crazy A**hole | 3/16/11

What I think this song means is that our Civlization is fucked up nowadays, we need to forget all the tiny minute details and rule as 1, no need for thinking, only action. Life is suposed to be taken in spontaneously and not to be worrying about what the world thinks of you. you must feel your need to express yourself and whoever doesnt care, can go to worry about their own life.

Yep, I went there... | Reviewer: Kahlan Grace Drake | 12/16/10

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! truth is you can only ever depend on yourself. Stop looking outward in finding who you are, we shape our own lives not the people around us!!! Stop blaming other people and if there are those people who truly are fucking with your life do something bout it!!! you don't owe anyone anything nor are we owed anything!!! Get in touch with who you are first then look outwards!!!

Don't just sit there | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/10

I do believe that this song isn't all about how messed up the world is. It does start out with talking about that, but with the whole "let's start a riot," it doesn't mean "let's start complaining!" I think what it really means is, "if it bothers you so much, get off your butt and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!" That's what it means to me-- if you don't like it, do something about it.

keep it about the song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/20/10

seriously people, we dont care that your life was rough. mine is just as bad as yours. dont go whining to the world. we are sorry you had to deal with that but we dont care. this song is not meant to make all of you come crying to the world. its meant to be a "shut the fuck up, get off the ground and carry on" song. so lets do just that instead of bitch and moan. its an amazing song. dont ruin it for me

Songs bad ass tho.

Sick of emos | Reviewer: Apollo | 4/1/10

wow, reading what the rest of you have to say scares me. Let me say this right now, GROW UP!! all of you! Your lives are NOT that bad, jeez. I like TDG cuz the tunes rock and I like powerful music with some UMPH in it. I'm so sick of people like you bitching about how much your life sucks cuz your renst dont "get you" You all make me ashamed to be a fan.

frickin awsum song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/11/10

this song fits in perfectly to my life. i know the true meaning behind the song, but the words fit perfectly. Ive been brought up an orphane. Was abused when I was a child for being gay and stuff. Im now completely alternative and well, yeah. I think you know where im going with this. But, brilliant song. I ONLY listen to music that means something, and this is deffinitly NO EXCEPTION.
