Rise Against - The Good Left Undone Lyrics




In fields where nothing grew but weeds,
I found a flower at my feet,
Bending there in my direction,
I wrapped a hand around its stem,
I pulled until the roots gave in,
Finding there what I'd been missing,

But I know...
So I tell myself, I tell myself it's wrong.
There's a point we pass from which we can't return.
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm.

All because of you,
I haven't slept in so long.
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
I'll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out.

Inside my hands these petals browned,
Dried up, fallen to the ground
But it was already too late now.
I pushed my fingers through the earth,
Returned this flower to the dirt,
So it could live. I walked away now.

But I know...
Not a day goes by that I don't feel this burn.
There's a point we pass from which we can't return.
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm.

All because of you,
I haven't slept in so long,
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
I'll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out.

All because of you...
All because of you...

All because of you,
I haven't slept in so long.
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
Inside these arms of yours.

All because of you,
I believe in angels.
Not the kind with wings,
No, not the kind with halos,
The kind that bring you home,
When home becomes a strange place.
I'll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out.

  3. Muse 182

  4. Carter Pierce

    Maenad

    A fan is Never alone 👊

  20. Ned Flanders

    How can anyone dislike this masterpiece!

  21. Eric Griffin

    I love this song so much but suddenly it occured to me.....is this a paedophile song.....or a song about always being there for someone.... I am way older now than the first time I heard this song so many years ago. When I was younger, with teen angst, I felt like doing good for others makes me feel good after listening to this song. Now, that I am an adult....it sounds like either paedophile themed or being who you needed when you were younger themed. Still, if I dont see the video, I will think of voluntary community services like sending help to communities or people in disaster.

    Agent Pigeon

    ... What the fuck is wrong with you lmao

    Bigfoot Forest

    @Agent Pigeon 🤣🤣🤣

  35. Slinky TV

    The good left undone to this day, Rise Against predicted the future

  36. Alex Shinoda

  37. Rama Esculturas22

    HEY! THAT GIRL IS THE CREEPY BOY FROM "AERIALS" FROM SYSTEM OF A DOWN? TX

  59. LordBeelzabub Thegreat

    The left is starting too be rebuilt, worry not, the left will never be left undone again.... the right has gone of the rails so hard that the left has been re awakened (its a kinda joke about the name of the song don't take it seriously)

  60. itsmontez.com

    2019 and beyond who's listing to this song still

  62. camrillem

  63. Phil Pacific

    NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT I DONT FEEL THIS PAIN!!!!

  64. grimmjow714

    Monica Padilla, this is my song to you

  65. Mr. Wight Trash

    Almost 2019. Still makes me happysad

  66. Peter Braun

    almost ten years later in 2019 anybody listens ?

  67. Samara C

    I'm just here in the crowd of 3 year old comments still living the emo "phase" in 2018

  68. Dl ld

    Lyrics at its finest. One of the best lyrics of all time.

  69. Biohazard

    19.099.999 views, thats alot of 9's

  70. justin linn

    2007 i was 18 and had the world at my finger tips now its this world seems empty

  71. C.R Parsons

    2018 and this song along with many other rise against songs are still absolutely relevant.. music at it's best.

  72. Bri S

    Their list of great songs would rival any band period.........................

  73. Jen Hart

    If this is the last song I hear before I die.. i will die happy!

  74. the calm boi

    This has been my favorite Rise Against song for quite some time, but it just means so much more to me now that I relate to it. I don’t know how to describe it except that it soothes a pain deep in my soul and makes me want to cry at the same time. I love this band so much.

  75. Marko Lazarevic

    First time here but the part from 0:40 to 0:58 sounds a lot like landmine from three days grace. is it just me or...?

  76. santeri nousiainen

    the world need answered these questions no one can blame only me its so wrong

  77. babycakesface27

    This song brings so many emotions back to me and somehow this band still gives me goosebumps after all these years. Very rare.

  78. TIO CROC

    landmine three days grace

  79. John Roger

    I love how the lead guitar goes on my left ear and the rythym on right, and bass+Drums both.

  80. Bijan Mehdiyoun

    1:41 - 1:45 Back when this first released I thought that was the coolest video editing ever and only recently did I realize that her movements are in sync with the single drum beat. LOL I feel like I've also seen here on a TV series somewhere? :/

  81. cynical1800

    I've felt the cold rain of the coming storm.

  82. Reggie Nieman

    Hidden gem in 2018,, been listening since senior year in 2006

  83. Death Knight

    2018 and still rocking it and this is the type of lyrics I want to hear not this trashy rap now days that talks about nothing but guns, money, sex and all sorts of stupid shit

  84. David Loomis

    This song was amazing as a kid, but it takes on a whole new meaning as an adult and is even better.

  85. Duane Hicks

    I love this song but it;s etter to hear it without seeing the video. I always thought it was about a soldier who goes overseas and feels guilt for not being able to help a child in a war-torn country.

    Cody LeClere

    Duane Hicks I can totally understand your interpretation. Like a book you can create your own world, right?! Good to see you here in 2018 :)

  86. Rob Wilson

    Time will change and so will we.

  87. Rafael Dal-Bó

    These songs are so empowering!

  88. Sean Kauder

    Lord these are some amazing lyrics

  89. DJ Ledward

    It's still amazes my till this very day how good Tim is on writing lyrics! 😍✊👍😭

  90. Battle Born

    This will always be my favorite rise against song

  91. 0i0l0o

    F-in vegans. Still, awesome music.

  92. Jeremiah Price

    When an ultra left wing band speaks to the soul of a hardcore conservative like me you know they are good.

  93. Jen Hart

    "ALL BECAUSE OF YOU!"

    Zephyr

    i read ur comment as soon as they said "ALL BECAUSE OF YOU!"

  94. GokuKushMasterZ

    I wrapped my hand around its stem
