Rise Against – Prayer Of The Refugee

“You won’t let me down, down, down”

Our first post on our blog and also the first song we post. Prayer Of The Refugee from Rise Against has the honour. It’s a song which characteristic for our music style, but of course not all songs are like these. If you like the band but doesn’t know this song, I’m sure you’ll like it. If you don’t know the band, let’s give it a try and listen!

Lyrics

Warm yourself by the fire son

The morning will come soon

I’ll tell you stories of a better time

In a place that we once knew

 

Before we packed our bags

And left all this behind us in the dust

We had a place that we could call home

And a life no one could touch

 

Don’t hold me up now

I can stand my own ground

I don’t need your help now

You won’t let me down, down, down!

 

Don’t hold me up now

I can stand my own ground

I don’t need your help now

You won’t let me down, down, down!

 

Down!

 

We are the angry and the desperate

The hungry and the cold

We are the ones who kept quiet

And always did what we were told

 

But we’ve been sweating while you slept so calm

In the safety of your home

We’ve been pulling out the nails that hold up

Everything you’ve known

 

Don’t hold me up now

I can stand my own ground

I don’t need your help now

You won’t let me down, down, down!

 

Don’t hold me up now

I can stand my own ground

I don’t need your help now

You won’t let me down, down, down!

 

So open your eyes child

Let’s be on our way

Broken windows and ashes

Are guiding the way

 

Keep quiet no longer

We’ll sing through the day

Of the lives that we’ve lost

And the lives we’ve reclaimed

 

Go!

 

Don’t hold me up now

I can stand my own ground

I don’t need your help now

You won’t let me down, down, down!

 

Don’t hold me up now

I can stand my own ground

I don’t need your help now

You won’t let me down, down, down!

 

Don’t hold me up…

(I don’t need your help I’ll stand my ground)

Don’t hold me up…

(I don’t need your help)

No! No! No!

Don’t hold me up!

(I don’t need your help I’ll stand my ground)

Don’t hold me up!

(I don’t need your help)

Don’t let me down, down, down, down, down!

Opinion Justin

A great song! The couplets are quite calm, while the refrain is fast and hard. The lyrics are good as well and they fit in the music. It’s not my favourite song from Rise Against but it’s coming close.

Grade: 8,8
