Rise Above



Rise Above by Black Flag

Jealous cowards try to control
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
They distort what we say
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Try and stop what we do
Rise above
When they can't do it themselves

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us it's no use

Society's arms of control
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Think they're smart
Can't think for themselves
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
Laugh at us
Behind our backs
I find satisfaction
In what they lack

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us it's no use

We are born with a chance
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
I am gonna have my chance
Rise above
We're gonna rise above

We are tired of your abuse
Try to stop us it's no use

Rise above
Rise above
Rise above
We're gonna rise above
We're gonna rise above
We're gonna rise above

Yesterday I listened to Rise Above by Black Flag 20 times in a row.

I was thinking about how much crap Bikini Kill had to face just to exist and how you can turn that kind of hate into fuel.

Rise Above is the ultimate anthem for this emotion. It becomes a location, a visceral sensation, a physicality.

Resist. Rise Above. Transform the shit into rocket fuel.
