Rise Today Lyrics - Alter Bridge

Review The Song (6)



The wind is blowing cold
Have we lost our way tonight?
Have we lost our hope to sorrow?

Feels like we're all alone
Running further from what's right
And there are no more heroes to follow

So what are we becoming?
Where did we go wrong?

[Chorus:]
Yeah, oh yeah
I want to rise today
And change this world

Yeah, oh yeah
Oh, won't you rise today
And change this world?

The sun is beating down
sponsored links
Are we ever gonna change
Can we stop the blood from running?

Our time is running out
Hope we find a better way
Before we find we're left with nothing

For every life that's taken
So much love is wasted

[Chorus:]
Yeah, oh yeah
I want to rise today
And change this world

Yeah, oh yeah
So won't you rise today
And change

This world
Only love can set it right
This world
If only peace would never die

Seems to me that we've got each other wrong
Was the enemy just your brother all along?

[Chorus:]
Yeah, oh yeah
I want to rise today
And change this world

Yeah, oh yeah
Oh won't you rise today
And change this world?

Yeah, oh yeah
I want to rise today
And change this world

Yeah, oh yeah
I want to rise today
And change this world

Great song but will America listen or go back to sleep. | Reviewer: LOU | 4/5/2008

It is a great song the lyrics are awsome the only question is do we listen or go back to being lied to and pacified into buying cheap crap like we have for the last 8 years, ordo we rise up like many generations have before and ask more of ourselves and our government. So thing to think about. Patriotism isn't slaping bumper stickerson our cars or have an argument about who wears a flag pin it's about protecting our form of goverment and correcting it when it gets off track. If we the people did wake up imagine what a world we could create?



Underdog Song | Reviewer: Miami Florida | 11/16/2007

I suppose political standpoints like Global Warming may be metaphorically taken here. But listen/read the lyrics carefully: “Lost Hope To Sorrow, No Heroes To Follow, Where did We go Wrong? Blood Running, Lives Taken, Love Wasted, Love Set it Right If Only Peace Would Never Die, We’ve got Each Other Wrong, Our Enemies Our Brother All Along?”

These are person-stated lyrics, not phenomenon-stated. Therefore, this is NOT primarily about Global Warming. The song is about our screwed-up world, violent socials, bad government etc., causing us to turn on each other and fight each other instead of banding together to fight our real problem; bad attitudes and ideals that hurts people. And we’re picking wrong people to imitate or rely on for solutions that help. The song is calling for good-hearted people to “Rise Today” and change the social-order of our world.

RISE TODAY! | Reviewer: S_d | 10/11/2007

I interpret it as being about global warming and climate change, just run through the lyrics and some stuff specifically makes a lot of sense in reference to climate change and how WE NEED to make a difference now or regret it later.



Political NO! | Reviewer: Donovahn the Rock Star | 8/8/2007

This song makes a good point of the fact that there are many bad things going on in this world yes, but that everybody is capable of helping and of doing good no matter how small of a change it might make you can help.
Rock on Alter Bridge your fans love you!!!



RISE TODAY | Reviewer: JESUS | 7/29/2007

THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN BY MYLES KENNEDY TO SAY THAT THERE'S MANY CRUEL THINGS GOIN ON IN THIS WORLD AND IT WAS NOT BUILD 2 BE USED AS A POLITICAL USE
