Rise Against – The Answer Lyrics

The Answer Lyrics – Rise Against

Let the fire burn a hole through everything
Leave only unidentifiable remains
Let the water breach the levee
Let every well run dry
While the cupboards all were emptied
We were told to wait outside

We closed our eyes
And ran these red lights
Out of ideas, out of options
Out of answers, out of road and out of time

Is there nothing that can save us now
Is there nothing that can save us now
We all run, we all hide
But this is the not the answer
Our mouths shut, our hands tied
But this is not the answer now

And I can’t tell you that’s it’s gonna be okay
And anybody else that does is lying to your face
Tell Me
Do your bones ache like mine
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Did we lock ourselves outside

But these roads can still be built
And these wrongs can be undone
We no longer can sit still
While there’s a war outside that’s waiting to be won

Is there nothing that can save us now
Is there nothing that can save us now
We all run, we all hide
But this is the not the answer
Our mouths shut, our hands tied
But this is not the answer now

It’s only getting darker
So dark that we can’t even see
The tourniquet is tied off
But we’ve only begun to bleed
And everybody’s tired
Of fighting for a space to sleep
The tide is getting higher
But we’ve only begun to bleed

Oh, is there nothing that can save us now
Oh, is there nothing that can save us now
Our mouths shut, our hands tied
Is there nothing that can save us now
Our mouths shut, our hands tied
Is there nothing that can save..
Is there nothing that can save us now…
