Rise Above 2 Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When the ones who run the firehouse
Are the ones who start the fire
And the lawless make the laws
And every preacher is a liar
And the ones who damn the innocent
Well they own the nightly news and front page
Verse 2
An old man said to me
It's not who but what you know
And knowledge isn't wisdom without control
Better still to be the changes
That you want to see
But they come slow, I know
Verse 3
And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
I can't, I can't
Verse 4
For every heart that bleeds
Will color your world red
And the sorrow in the night
Will be the blue you cannot shed
But your strength will be a vision
Beyond visibility
And the gift you have within
Will give you new eyes to see
Verse 5
That you can rise above
Swing through the skies above
And you shall rise above
Yourself
Verse 6
Know that I'll be watching
Know that I'll be waiting
Standing on the precipice
I can soar away from this
Verse 7
And you can rise above
Free your soul
Open your eyes up
Rise above yourself and take control
And you can rise above
The need to love
Yourself
To release yourself and rise above it all
Verse 8
And you can rise above
I will be there
Open your eyes up
You were never alone
And you can rise above
Inside your dreams
Yourself
I've been watching and waiting for you
Verse 9
And you can rise above
Open your eyes to love
And you can rise above
Yourself
Verse 10
And every heart that bleeds
Will color your world red
And the sorrow in the night
Will be the blue you cannot shed
And your strength will be a vision
Beyond visibility
And the gift you have before you
Will give you new eyes to see
