Rise Against – Chamber The Cartridge lyrics

Down beyond these city streets
Through gutters filled with black debris
In alleys void of any light
Where nameless things live out of sight
Down through the scrapers of the sky past neon words glowing all night
Echoes my name between each car
"Are you happy where you are?"

Blind to this impending fate
We let the world carry our weight
Its back breaks with every mile
But we all live in denial

Can we be saved? Has the damage all been done?
Is it too late to reverse what we've become?
A lesson to learn at a crucial point in time
What's mine was always yours, and yours is mine

Let's go!

And so we carry on each day as if our lives were not so grey
While every breath that we take, we only suffocate
Brush past a myriad of scenes
A homeless vet crashed on Wall Street, a single mom of 3, a tv personality

Blind to this impending fate
They let the world carry their weight
Its back breaks with every mile
But they all live in denial

Can we be saved, has the damage all been done?
Is it too late to reverse what we've begun?
A lesson to learn at a crucial point in time
What's mine was always yours, and yours is mine

Save us from what we have become tonight
Eyes glazed with distrust, no sense of wrong or right

Save us from what we have become tonight
Eyes glazed with distrust, no sense of wrong or right

Save us from what we have become tonight
Eyes glazed with distrust, no sense of wrong or right

Can we be saved, has the damage all been done?
Is it too late to reverse what we've become?
A lesson to learn at a crucial point in time
What's mine was always yours, and yours is mine

    I believe that this song questions our world and is it really what we want it to be? It is asked, "Are you happy where you are?" And then says, "we carry on each day as if our lives were not so grey." This displays the negligence of the people to what they have done to this world and their lives. Therefore, "Can we be saved, has the damage all been done?
    Is it too late to reverse what we've become? "
