RISE AGAINST

RISE AGAINST - Collapse (Post-Amerika)

rate me

When our rivers run dry and our crops cease to grow

And when our summers grow longer and winters won't snow

From the banks of the ocean and the ice in the hills

To the fight in the desert where progress stands still

When we've lost our will

That's how we'll know

This is not a test, oh no

This is cardiac arrest

Of a world too proud to admit our mistakes

We're crashing into the ground as all fall from grace

When the air that we breathe becomes air that we choke

When the marsh fever spreads from the swamps to our homes

When your home on the range has been torn down and paved and

The buffalo roam to a slaughterhouse grave

What more will it take

For us to know

This is not a test, oh no

This is cardiac arrest

Of a world too proud to admit our mistakes

Kissing the ground as well fall from grace

This is a chance to set things straight

To bend or break the rules back into place

There is no middle ground, no compromise, we've drawn the line

With perfect aim, we stand back and throw

Glass windows break and it's all about to blow

Lights go out as we pass the torch again

In hope that it stays lit

Neutrality means that you don't really care

Cause the struggle goes on even when you're not there

Blind and unaware

That's how we'll know

This is not a test, oh no

This is cardiac arrest

Of a world too proud to admit our mistakes

We're crashing into the ground as we all, yeah we all, all fall from grace
