Seether – Rise Above This lyrics

Take the light and darken everything around me
Call the clouds and listen closely I'm lost without you
Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I'm fallen down but I'll rise above this, rise above this

Hate the mind, regrets are better left unspoken
For all we know, this void will grow
And everything's in vain, distressing you though it leaves me open
Feels so right, but I'll end this all before it gets me

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I'm fallen down but I'll rise above this, rise above this
Call your name every day when I seem so helpless
I'm fallen down, but I'll rise above this, rise above this doubt

I'll mend myself before it gets me
(I'll mend myself before it gets me)
I'll mend myself before it gets me
(I'll mend myself before it gets me)

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I'm fallen down but I'll rise above this, rise above this
Forty eight ways to say that I'm feelin' helpless
I'm Falling down, falling down, but I'll rise above this, rise above this,
Rise above this, rise above this doubt

    I think he is speaking directly to his brother. He must have felt his brother took the light out of life when he died and he wants to tell him some things that he didn't get to. I think he wants him to know that he wont do the same thing.
    This song shows the most important thing about music and that is getting your feelings out and sharing them with others.
    Seether has a lot of rockin songs that are also very good for your self esteem, such as f*k It and Fake It, I recommend them to anyone.

    For the past year and a half, I've been going through a ton. My great aunt died, then my grandfather died. My grandmother went to the hospital just after my mom had back surgery. My mom lost her job. That was just in 2007. This year, my great uncle on the other side past away and my great aunt was - and still is - suffering. My father was pretty upset about it. A close family friend is still in the hospital for breast cancer that spread. She has been in the hospital for a month and shes getting a little better.
    The first time I heard this song, I was like, oh, its a good song. When I thought about it, it gave me hope that even tho I am going through a hard time, I can rise above and try to fix the broken parts in me.

    My boyfriend left for the army on august 7th. Before he left, we'd spend nearly every day at my house, hanging around in the family room, with the tv on, usually on Fuse. He always liked seether, and I think they're alright, but over those two weeks we had before he left we heard this song nearly every day. We heard it on our last day together.
    Five weeks later, and it's following us. It's everywhere we go. It was the first song that came on when he was allowed to use his ipod a couple weeks ago, it played over the radio while I was in stage construction, thinking about how he'd be proud of my using power tools successfully.
    It's taking a lot of effort, but we're making our way through this. We can only talk to each other maybe once a week, if he's allowed to use the phones. The same with e-mail. He can send letters, but not receive them yet.
    I wear his old dog tags every day, I say goodnight to them in lieu of him. I hold them when it gets too hard. We're both learning to take everything a day at a time, but each day leads to one specifically -
    He gets to come home for christmas.

    To me it means you have had someone special in your life but you've lost them in some way or another. Whether it be death or them walking away from you. No matter who it is they were very special to you and could lift you up, but when you need lifted up because of them leaving you no longer have that person to lean on or help you rise above it. Then you find you need to be strong on your own by ending the current problem your facing and mending your pain and broken heart.

    This song/video gets to me so bad. I lost my uncle through suicide last April and it has been a whirlwind of anger, sadness, bitterness, love, hate, and everything else mixed in together. Anyone who has lived through the same, my heart goes out to you. It is indeed a selfish act, but you learn to move on, and somehow find a way to love that person though it's the hardest thing sometimes. Rip Eugine, all my love and sympathy to Shaun's family.
