The band spoke not to the masses,
but to those whose wrists wore slashes.
Their words lacked a semblance of formality,
but were meant for those with abnormality.
The message was for all those whose pain was immense;
it told them it was time to rise, Rise Against.

Rise Against the injustice and pain.
Defend the memory of the slain.
Stand for those who are helpless.
Always try to be selfless.
Work hard for better futures.
Treat the world's wounds with sutures.

Rise Against their pseudo-perfection.
With music, they gave us direction.
Do not let yourself be tame.
Do not give in to their game.
Fight back, but not with violence,
and do not live in silence.

Rise Against the corrupt regime.
They are not as strong as they seem.
Live only by your moral laws.
Stand up, stand out, embrace your flaws.
Arm-in-arm, we make a wall.
Together, we can stand tall.

Rise Against the fanatic;
those whose beliefs are static.
They fear our success, our progress,
and so it is us they oppress.
In time, my suffering brothers and sisters,
we rid ourselves of these emotional blisters.

The vision we seek is not a myth.
I quote now, the words of Tim McIlrath:
"We have a moral obligation," we do,
"to leave this world a better place," brand new,
"than the world that we've found." it's true.
A poem about the amazing band "Rise Against." I hope you all like it!

"We have a moral obligation to leave this world a better place than the world that we've found." - Tim McIlrath
