Help is on the way

Rise Against just released their new single "Help is on the way". As a big fan of them i've already listened to it about 500 times and oh man, it is GOOD! All though that i still think they've sold out since the release of The sufferer and witness and even more their latest album Appeal to Reason, I still understand why they have such a big fanbase.

The song in general as always is about something that is happening right now, something that is wrong and important. And as we all know the major natureincident today is about the oil spill in the gulf.

But as we know, all good things actually do come to an end. I think this is the end of the frog in Tim Mcilrath throat. Theres almost no screaming at all compared to their old albums like The unraveling, Revolutions per minute etc. How many times i've listened to songs like state of the union, heaven knows, torches, the art of losing and their really good cover of Sick of it all's "Built to last", is uncountable. Appeal to reason was released in the end of 2008. Rise against will release their album "Endgame" March 2011.

 The lyrics are to me a perspective from the animals and fishes point of view, heres the lyrics;

I have my mother's dreams
I have my father's eyes
You can't take that from me
Just go ahead and try

The crescent city sleeps
While giants in the sky
preparing to unleash
let loose a mighty cry

Can nobody save us?
Will anyone try?
pyre is burning
The severance is tight

And all along they're saying

Help is on the way (they said they said)
Help is on the way (they said they said)
Hold my hand, to help see, right there in front of me
Help is on the way

five thousand feet below
as black smoke engulfs the sky
the ocean floor explodes
11 mothers cry

My bones are resining
a burning lullaby
you can't take that from me
just go ahead and try

she says that's a sure line
with hands in the air
her words miss the dark light
Does anyone care?
And all along can say it

Help is on the way (they said they said)
Help is on the way (they said they said)
Hold my hand, to help see, right there in front of me
Help is on the way

right here
right here
(3x)

choking on the black gold
upon which we here rely
we keep actions in the attics
to see cameras in the sky

help is on the way (they said they said)
help is on the way (they said they said)

we were told, just to sit tight
'cause somebody will soon arrive

Help is on the way
They never came
They never came

Help is on the way (they said they said)
Help is on the way (they said they said)
Hold my hand, to help see, right there inside of me
Help is on the way

On the way

 I think that especially the bridge between the verses and chorus is really fucking awesome, check it out
