    I believe, that "live to rise" means, you have to rise to the many challenges of life. The first verse, means that there was someone that he loved, and he found out that they didn't love him, or at least lost interest in him. "you're insane but not alone, you hold on, and they're gone. " he tried to hold onto them but they slipped away. The chorus means, "like the sun we live to rise," we rise to challenges. That our nature. "like the sun we live and die, and then ignite again," we get our hearts broken, but in time it heals and we are able to get back into the world. The second verse is very similar, except he is remembering a long lost friend. He says "what if all these things i missed, are all i need to pass the test," he means, did I make a mistake and not see it? Am I the one who ruined our relationship? And then he restates the chorus again. When he repeats, "warm my face, warm your face," h's talkining abt how he got in touch with these people and tried to make amends. If you really think abt it, this song has quite a depressing meaning, but in the end, you have to look at what you have and not take it for granted. This song rocks!
