The Violence Lyrics

The Violence (暴力) - Rise Against

Written by:Rise Against/Tim McIlrath

Dancing on the crumbling precipice

 

The rocks are coming loose just at the edge

Are we laughing are we crying

Are we drowning are we dead

Or is it all a dream

 

The bombs are getting closer everyday

That can never happen here we used to say

Have these wars come to our doorstep

Has this moment finally come

Or is it all a dream

 

Are we not good enough

Are we not brave enough

Is the violence in our nature

Just the image of our maker

Are we not good enough

Are we not brave enough

To become something greater

Than the violence in our nature

Are we not good enough

Or is it all a dream

 

To a predetermined fate are we condemned

Or maybe we're a book without an end

We're not stories we're not actors

We're awake and in control

And this is not a dream

 

So can we break this mold

And set in motion something new

Forgetting what we know

An evolution overdue

Fight the current

Pull the ripcord

Get away

Are we not good enough

Are we not brave enough

Is the violence in our nature

Just the image of our maker

Are we not good enough

Are we not brave enough

To become something greater

Than the violence in our nature

Are we not good good enough

 

We travel back to what we take

We need a storm let's pray for rain now

To wash these roads away

Let's get off track and wander far

Same roads lead to same destinations

Follow nothing but your heart

We're talking in our sleep

And sleeping through our lives

We dream of the places where we never die

We step from our shadows and into the light

 

Are we not good enough

Are we not brave enough

Is the violence in our nature

Just the image of our maker

Are we not good enough

Are we not brave enough

To become something greater

Than the violence in our nature

Are we not good enough

 

Are we not brave enough

 

Are we not good good enough

 

Or was it all a dream
