Rise Against – Savior lyrics

It kills me not to know this but I've all but just forgotten
What the color of her eyes were and her scars or how she got them
As the telling signs of age rain down a single tear is dropping
Through the valleys of an aging face that this world has forgotten
There is no reconciliation that will put me in my place
And there is no time like the present to drink these draining seconds
But seldom do these words ring true when I'm constantly failing you
Like walls that we just can't break through until we disappear

So tell me now
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have

But the day pressed on like crushing weights
For no man does it ever wait
Like memories of dying days
That deafen us like hurricanes
Bathed in flames we held the brand
Uncurled the fingers in your hand
Pressed into the flesh like sand
Now do you understand?

So tell me now
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have

1000 miles away
There's nothing left to say
But so much left that I don't know
We never had a choice
This world is too much noise
It takes me under
It takes me under once again
I don't hate you
I don't hate you

So tell me now
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have

I don't hate you
I don't hate you, no

    I feel like I relate to this song so what I think it means is he can't help what hes done and he still loves her very much the same goes for her but no matter what it will never work out again because of what has happened and what their going through. See I'm in love with a guy whos always been the bad type and I've always tried to help him save himself and change but he didn't so now hes about to do life in prison but I love him so much but hate him for what hes done and he loves me still but hates me for saying I can't stay and he knows he can't ask me to be with him or wait for him because it would never work out that way so we both have to realise that no matter what we need to move on even though we still have love for each other.

    To me it means, the guy has done things in the past that hurt his girl and made them argue, and he feels totally bad about it but he can't get over it. Since he can't get over it, he's starting to distance himself from her because he doesn't want to hurt her. No matter what they keep arguing so he asks her, "if this aint love then how do we get out". So she tells him, " i dont hate you"and that she loves him to much to give up on him, and she wants to help him get through his problems. He tells her he loves her but feels that he's not the right man for her.

    Just as the title says, waiting for that peraless beauty to save the beast, for all the questions she has regarding how he became the beast. The Beast not hating her but loving her in pain for her not having the courage to trench forth without question in attempt to save him. Out of fear it is, why she hesitates and hates not the beast for not answering the questions she has, but rather herself for seeing the pain in his eye and being unable to actually save him. That is where this song leads me. For I am becoming the beast and loosing heart for the beauty that has yet to find me and save me from what I am becoming so knowingly and remind me as well as through love return me to the prince I once was.

    I think this song has a double meaning if you go by the music video then its bout the environment but if you just listen to the lyrics of the song and listen for when the back vocals say "whoa whoa" then that is were the true meaning lies. The reason why artist do subtle back vocals is not just because it sounds good it is to emphasize the led singer and what he is saying. Not many artist use this technique today due to the fact that most modern day music as literal definitions in the lyrics. This is an older style of music and I don't know what is called.

    The part that stands out is the "drink these drainign seconds" I think they want to still be together, he definately is an alcoholic, which is something yuo need to catch, they aren't good for each other but they don't want to leave each other, one of those, they shoudln't be together yet thast all they want. And once they do become apart "1000 miles away there's nothing left to say" they may feel empty, and she wants to stop whatever it is he's doing, he wants her but he is realizing all he is causing is pain, suffering and for ehr to be unhappy, making him unhappy, not it's not a pick me up song, it is a reality song, which I admire and respect about these guys, kudos for the song, and for what it can mean for people in these situations!
