Rise Against – Ready To Fall lyrics

Hold on slow down again from the top now and tell me everything
I know I've been gone for what seems like forever
But I'm here now waiting
To convince you that I'm not a ghost or a stranger
But closer than you think
She said, "Just go on to what you
Pretend it's your life but
Please don't die on me"

Wings wont take me
Heights don't phase me
So take a step
But don't look down take a step

Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall

Perpetual motion the image wont focus
A blur is all that's seen
But here in this moment like the eye of the storm
It all came clear to me
I found a shoulder to lean on
An infallible reason to live all by itself
I took one last look from the heights that I once loved
And then I ran like hell

Wings won't take me
Heights don't phase me
So take a step
But don't look down take a step

Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall

I count the times that I've been sorry
(I know, I know)
While my compassion slowly drowns
(I know, I know)
If there's a time these walls could guard you
(I know, I know)
Then let that time be right now

Now I'm standing on a rooftop
Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall (ready to fall)
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
Now I'm standing on a rooftop (ready to fall) [3x]
Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall

    I think it's partially about suicide, in the song he's on the rooftop ready to fall ("Now I'm standing on the rooftop ready to fall" note that he hasn't killed himself yet) and he can't put up with life anymore ("I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong") but found a reason to keep on living ("But here in this moment like the eye of the storm It all came clear to me I found a shoulder to lean on An infallible reason to live all by itself")
    Awesome song!

    Suicide?!?!?!? Nahhh.
    This song is about human beings thinking that they are rising to the top, when really they are about to fall straight down.
    The woman is mentioned is in a way Mother Nature, and the song says "Please Don't Die on Me" because the writer wants to save her and keep her.
    In the video there are many clips and images of animal torture, disposal and slaughter, and it closes with him saying "Every action has a reaction" which also re-enforces the idea of saving the planet and helping keep our world that is dissapearing and crashing so fast.
