Rise Against – The Violence lyrics

[Verse 1]
Dancing on the crumbling precipice,
The rocks are coming loose just at the edge.
Are we laughing? Are we crying?
Are we drowning? Are we dead?
Or was it all a dream?

The bombs are getting closer everyday,
"That can never happen here" we used to say.
Have these wars come to our doorstep?
Has this moment finally come?
Or was it all a dream?

[Chorus]
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good enough
Or was it all a dream?

[Verse 2]
To a pretty time and fate are we condemned,
Or maybe we're a book without an end.
We're not stories, we're not actors,
We're awake and in control,
And this is not a dream.

So can we break this mold,
And set in motion something new?
Forgetting what we know,
An evolution overdue.
Fight the current,
Pull the the ripcord,
Get away!

[Chorus]
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good, good enough?

[Bridge]
We travel back אo what we take,
We need a storm, let's pray for rain now,
To wash these roads away.
Let's get off track and wander far,
Same roads reducing destinations
Do nothing but show our heart,
We're talking in our sleep,
And sleeping through our lives.
We dream of the places where we never die,
We step from our shadows and into the light.

[Outro]
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Are we not good, good enough,
Or was it all a dream?
