    makes me think of an old girlfriend. I broke up with her because, of all terrible things, she was a virgin and wanted to wait.
    now, i've been married 15 years, and I think of ellen way too much.
    I miss her.

    My father dies when I was 10. He was very loved in my home town, and over 400 people came to his viewing.
    I miss him every day. I'm 49, and I never got over his sudden death.
    This song makes me think of him. And how lost I am in this life.

      The lead vocalist and the one that writes most of the songs is agnostic and has had his tough times involved with the church. So I doubt it.

  • Kit Kat

    My interpretation of this song is that it's about soldiers lost in action. The speaker in the song is either family, a friend, or possibly a fellow soldier. "Please know you can come home" is the person desperate for the soldier to return.

    To me, this song is about a plea for Jesus to return and give us another chance to treat Him right. That He can come home because we've learned. That's always what I picture when I hear it.

      +NovusIgnis "Even together, we stand apart." The song is clearly about racism, homophobia, xenophobia etc. Rise Against's lyrics are a little less open-ended than most bands, and ard usually political in nature.
      I'm not interested in arguing, just thought I'd say it.

    • NovusIgnis

      +Stories of War it's good because it's fun. A kid has no place in an argument because all they do is throw temper tantrums when they lose, like what's-its-face keeps doing. A kid can't form a cohesive argument. All they do is whine.

      How is calling someone a child (which really isn't even a bad thing or negative thing sometimes) a good insult? also I just remembered that he is indeed Agnostic now that you bring that up, Tim has proclaimed it but for some reason I cant find a good source as the only decent sources I can find say "he is a self-proclaimed agnostic" but nothing with a quote sadly.

    • NovusIgnis
      NovusIgnis 2 года назад

      +Stories of War you have your views on that. I happen to think it's a great insult.
      If you want to make claims about Tim being atheist, you gotta back them up. Because I've never heard of that at all. The only thing I've heard about him and religion is he was raised Catholic. So I'm pretty sure he's agnostic at worst.

    Great song about two people, who once saw eye to eye but somehow they have lost their love/friendship and became strangers.
    One person wants to get back their friendship and wants the other to just listen. It seems that the other person isn't that much interested in becoming friends/lovers again.
    Great song, great lyrics like "even togehter we stand apart" "I long for the moment our silence is broken"
    love it =)

      +Manuel Eisenkirchner I'm not judging your interpretation of the song, and if it helped you with a situation similar to the one you described that's great! :), However I'm fairly certain that this song (like many of Rise Againsts' tunes) is most likely a political one. I can count the amount of break-up/love songs they have on my two hands, and honestly man, I don't think this is one of them. (Interesting way of looking at it though! :D)

    This song got me through a house fire back in 2008. I got the album 3 days before the fire, the day it came out, the cd being my only possession.
    After a few years of not listening to it, I just completely broke down in a parking lot listening to it again.
    This song means so much to me.

  • billybobjoe joebobbilly

    From what I can tell this song is about two men arguing. One man a General and the other, his King. The two men used to be brothers in arms and the closest of friends.
    "Another place, another time we toed the same side of the line. Yea we saw eye to eye. Even then the saddest sounds were nothing laughter could not drown"
    However the General eventually came to see the King as a tyrant and encouraged the men under his command to rebel against their king.
    "To the ends of this lost world, you have marched and you have sworn to a tainted crown of thorns"
    However eventually the rebellion was discovered and the King and his loyalists went to hunt the General and his separatists down who had gone into hiding in the wilderness.
    "As the hungry sails unfurl, we are thrusted from the shore. And it`s you (the General) that we search for."
    "The blackest nights, the midnight sun. The covered tracks and days spent on the run. The strangers we've become."
    However, the King does not wish his friend harm. he begs the General to come home and give up his fight. He promises him a return with open arms. The King does not truly grasp just how far he and the General have drifted apart. The General refuses to give up, not until his goals are achieved.
    "These whereabouts unknown. Please know you can come home. It's alright."
    "I long for the moment (when the General returns). Our silence is broken (The General speaking of his rebellion)."
    There's a little bit more but I think I've made my point.
    It took me awhile to come to this conclusion because of how the song is written. But once I realized that the chorus weren't the conflicting thoughts of one man but were instead the thoughts/worldviews of two different men involved in a civil war it all kinds came together.

      I always got it is a family where a younger member feels like an outsider. A lot of rise against songs are about bullying. Almost sounds like a conservative family with a lgbt remember. The repeat that they can come home and it will be alright. Abd i think it is tge kud saying everything would be alright if the parent just listened.

    • JamaicanCastle
      JamaicanCastle 10 месяцев назад

      I always thought of it as two friends, or perhaps family members, who were foot soldiers of some organization. Now one is a rebel while the other is still loyal, and it's about how they wish they could regain their friendship, but are divided by their loyalties.

    • The good old days
      The good old days 11 месяцев назад +1

      I believe this song is about a misunderstanding which leads to 2 people
      becoming enemies. Just for the sake of the lyrics and simplicity, I'll
      name 2 characters. A king and his (now former) trusted general.

      "To the ends of this lost world
      You have marched and you have sworn
      To a tainted crown of thorns"
      I believe this is the general speaking. Together the king and his
      general have conquered large parts of the world, forging an empire
      together - however the general became disillusioned, hence the "tainted
      crown of thorns".

      "As the hungry sails unfurl
      We are trusted from the shore
      And it's you that we search for"
      I believe this is the general talking, seeking to come kill the king and overthrow him.

      "The blackest night
      The midnight sun
      The covered tracks and days spent on the run
      The strangers we've become"
      This is from the perspective of the general. He's talking about how he's
      left and went into hiding while he begins his rebellion. At the end of
      this line, he is lamenting about how the king has changed and they've
      become strangers.

      "These whereabouts unknown
      Please know you can come home
      It's alright
      I long for the moment
      Our silence is broken
      It's alright
      It's alright
      It's alright"
      This is from the perspective of the king. He doesn't want to fight his
      general, he wants him to come back and discuss their problems because he
      sees the general as a friend/potentially even family.

      "Another place, another time
      We toed the same side of the line
      Yeah we saw eye to eye"
      This could be either or even both of them, but for the sake of
      simplicity I will assume it's the general. He's talking about how he
      used to be loyal to the king, and believed they were fighting for the
      same things.

      "Even then the saddest sounds,
      Were nothing laughter could not drown
      But we are not laughing now"
      This could be either, talking about the victory they had when they were
      working together, and how now they've grown to resent each other.

      "I see your face
      In my sights
      I hesitate
      And then look for a sign
      Somewhere in the sky"
      The general is trying to assassinate the king, but can't bring himself to kill his former comrade.

      "It's alright now
      'Cause all is forgiven
      If you could just listen
      It's alright
      It's alright."
      I believe the general finally confronted the king, and decided to forgive him if he would just listen to what he had to say.

    @IamAmazinghehe: as an overall message, it was a good album. The sound wasn't bad and I didn't dislike a single song it. To someone who's new to Rise, it's an easy intro. But to fans that have heard/known them since the older stuff ('01-'06) that this is baby stuff compared to what the band is truly capable of. I blame signing to a major label but a bigger label means more people hearing the message and what they have to say in their songs. This song gives you a sense of where their roots are.
