Rise Against – Ready To Fall lyrics

[Verse 1]
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"

[Pre-Chorus]
Wings won't take me,
Heights don't phase me.
So take a step,
But don't look down take a step.

[Chorus]
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.

[Verse 2]
Perpetual motion, the image won't 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.

[Pre-Chorus]
Wings won't take me,
Heights don't phase me.
So take a step,
But don't look down take a step.

[Chorus]
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.

[Hook]
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.

[Bridge]
Now I'm standing on a rooftop,
Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall!

[Outro]
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),
Now I'm standing on a rooftop (ready to fall),
Now I'm standing on a rooftop (ready to fall),
Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall!

    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.

    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!
