RISE AGAINST LYRICS

"Reception Fades"

You talk about the way things were
But I can't hear what you're saying
A time when life was not this hard
Blessed by the innocence

Is the best yet to come?
Or did it pass by long ago?
Are we holding on to a thread
Of something already dead?

I'm not your reason to stand up straight
Shoulders back chest out and eyes raised
Stepping back, I hesitate
I can't let myself be taken

Is the best yet to come?
Or did it pass by long ago?
Are we holding on to a thread
Of something already dead?

You can't change your mind, expect me to care
You can't just snap your fingers and expect me to be there.
[2x]
Can't just change your mind

The reception fades the signals breaking up
And am I moving on or am I giving up?
If you walk away from this with anything
Live your life today.
