Rise Against - Survive Lyrics




Somewhere between happy, and total fucking wreck
Feet sometimes on solid ground, sometimes at the edge
To spend your waking moments, simply killing time
Is to give up on your hopes and dreams, to give up on your...

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are

An obvious disinterest, a barely managed smile
A deep nod in agreement, a status quo exile
I shirk my obligations, I miss all your deadlines
I excel at quitting early, and fucking up my life

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are

All smiles and sunshine, a perfect world on a perfect day
Everything always works out, I have never felt so fucking great
All smiles and sunshine, a perfect world on a perfect day
Everything always works out, I have never felt so great

(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this)
(Life isn't like this) Life isn't like this
(Life isn't like this) Life isn't like this
(Life isn't like this) Are we verging on an answer,
Or fucking up our...

Life for you, (who we are) has been less than kind
So take a number, (who we are) stand in line
We've all been sorry, (who we are) we've all been hurt
But how we survive, (who we are) is what makes us who we are

(Who we are)
It's what makes us who we are
(Who we are)
Makes us who we are
(Who we are)
It's what makes us who we are
(Who we are)

Rise Against Survive Comments
  1. stress202 AJ

    Literally should win award for best song ever!!👌

  2. History FitnessGuy

    Damn this takes me back to SVR 07. Me and my friend played the shit out of this game. I remember the night before Mania 24. We played all night into the Sunday morning. Good times.

  3. Isaac DeMaria

    Karasmai

  4. 081clemente

  5. James Ervin

    Good vs evil only one can win.

  6. RDG760 jr

    Smackdown vs Raw 2007 Had an Awesome Soundtrack Just Like Day of Reckoning

  7. Kent

    this song just brings back memories im gonna cry I hate this era now

  8. Hossain Shariar

    Totally fade up. Without reason what the fuck they did Unnecessary.
    Rise against fucking survive.

  9. Max DiPierro

    “Somewhere between happy and total fucking wreck” is the one lyric I can relate to right now in my life more than ever. I’m so glad I found this song

  10. Antonino Caserta

    MAN THE FEELS!!! I WAS FUCKING FIFTEEN!

  11. Connor Fruth

    This is the main song that saved my life when I was extremely depressed, lost, and suicidal when I was 13. The whole "The Sufferer & the Witness" (July 4, 2006) album basically saved me but "Survive" was the main song that I would have on repeat. Thank you, Rise Against!

  12. CallMeJaucy

    Yes we all came here from SvR 2007. Cool Btw, listen to Forgive Me by Versus the World then listen to this song. It sound sounds like he’s talking his way out of suicide.

  13. Víctor García

    This is my favourite song ever, I have never been tired of listening to it and I have been listening rise against for more than ten years. This song is just inspiring and fulfills me with energy to live to the fullest.

    Alec

    This song is very kickass! It will never be boring or old

  14. Amber134 Xo

    WWE SVR 07 brought me here

  15. Amber133 Xo

    WWE SVR 07 brought me here

  16. BAYKEN 56

    Never heard that beginning before.

  17. Vaden Nixon

    So many memories associated with this song and playing smackdown 2007 good times

  18. SpaghettiBalls

    2:59 part always got to me

  19. ShadowPresident 420

    Dope lyrics worth remembering. It's so fucking hard out there a lot of the time. But how we survive, is what makes us who we are!

  20. Alec Gentry

    Coming back to this song years and years later as I face traumas old and new, because I know I need to remind myself... I'm stronger than I've let myself be, and it's all about the choices I decide to make while I attempt to see through the struggle that define my character at the end of the day. Will I make myself the hero or the villain of my own story? Only time will tell, but I certainly hope to be my own savior instead of my own demise.

    Hah. Savior.
    No pun intended.

  21. Tomken3

    This is a great song, thanks <3

  22. stevenstrumpf7

    I can say with absolute certainty that it is not glorious outside.

  23. stevenstrumpf7

    I can say with absolute certainty that it is not glorious outside.

  24. todd peterson

    To me this is a recovery song about addiction and trying to rebuild your life clean

  25. ZPB Studios

    Michael Cole: I heard about the way you train people. You make marine structures look like pushovers!
    Tazz: Durrrgh!

  26. ZPB Studios

    (hits opponent with chairshot)
    Tazz: The Stone Cold Stunner!
    Me: WTF? That's not a Stone Cold Stunner?

  27. ZPB Studios

    SVR 07... remember when the commentary team said "Stone Cold Stunner!" when you hit your opponent with a chairshot?!

  28. Kendobandz666 Bandz

    Reminds me of Dragonball z Goku turning super Sayian 4

  43. courtney timmins

    If you search my phone's downloaded music you will not find one rock song. Just kpop and random foreign songs and some dubstep.


    But I've loved rock and metal much longer than any of those. And there will always be a special place in my heart for them.

    man i played smackdown vs raw 2007 but never payed much attention to the band. now its 2019 and i feel like i missed so much stuff when i was younger.

  49. Apinaattori 2600

    Has anyone any information about that intro? It's certainly not on the album and I tried to google it but couldn't find anything

    Leo Farron

    The intro is the end of the song before it on the CD. So, yeah it is on the CD, whether or not it's on the digital version you have is a different question.

    Apinaattori 2600

    @Leo Farron Okey, thank you. Seems like I need to buy the CD

    Sex0000

    Last comment 3 years ago. I shiock my kids when I quote Rise Against. But the song writer has a great turn of phrase. And the drummer reminds me of another.

    Fav rise against song

  64. Jonathan Payton

    I got a PSP for my 13th birthday (25 now) and I got SVR 2007 and the moment I heard this song it became my favorite up until maybe the as recent as the past 5 years even. But when I was a kid I didnt really listen to the lyrics. Coming back to really listen to it as an adult and growing up having dealt with/dealing with depression, anxiety, mental illness etc. Since i last played the game and heard the song, i definitely appreciate it more now than i ever did and its once again my favorite song. but now for new reasons. Funny how life sometimes comes full circle "but how we survive is what makes us who we are" ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼 keep rising against
