Rise Against – Tragedy+Time

“We’re holding on to laugh again someday”

Tragedy+Time is the second single of their newest album The Black Market. The song is, as its title already says, about tragedy and time. We’re all going through tough times when we can’t really enjoy life, but never give up. As the final phrase says: We all learn to laugh again.

Album: The Black Market

Year: 2014

 

Lyrics

On the edges of the sharpest knives

In the middle of the darkest nights

Always knew that I would find you there

In a puddle of the bravest tears

I’ve seen enough to know

It’s lonely where you are

 

Above the crowd, feet dangling from a rooftop

She waits from ledges for a voice to talk her down

 

And nothing matters but the pain when you’re alone

The never-ending nights when you’re awake

When you’re praying that tomorrow it’s ok

 

There will be a time to crack another smile

Maybe not today or for awhile

But we’re holding on to laugh again someday

To laugh again someday

 

All that matters is the time we had

Doesn’t matter how it all went bad

Never wonder what it might be like

Shut the door, say goodbye

 

When faced with tragedy

We come alive or come undone

 

Don’t look back, let it shape you like an ocean

Even the deepest scars in time will fade

 

And nothing matters but the pain when you’re alone

Or the never-ending nights when you’re awake

Praying that tomorrow it’s ok

 

There will be a time to crack another smile

Maybe not today or for awhile

But we’re holding on to laugh again someday

But we’re holding on to laugh again someday

 

Sometimes you have to go back

To know just where you have been

But we’re old enough  to know that

What has been will be again and again

 

And the bravest of faces

Are the ones where we fake it

In the roles that we play

 

But nothing matters when the pain is all but gone

When you’re finally awake

Despite the overwhelming odds; tomorrow came

And when they see you crack a smile

And you decide to stay awhile

You’ll be ready then to laugh again

 

Nothing matter s but the pain (we are tragedy, we are sympathy)

Nothing matters but the pain

You see what you want to see

Nothing matter s but the pain (we are misery, and distant memories)

Nothing matter s but the pain

But we all learn to laugh again

Yeah we all learn to laugh again

We all learn to laugh again

 

 

Opinion Daniël

The song is okay, but it’s a bit boring.

Opinion Justin

I think this song is, especially lyrical, a very good song. The lyrics are very close to people, because everyone has had a period in their life when they felt like this. The music isn’t very spectacular, so the lyrics are the most important part of this song. I think that everyone can give this song a personal meaning, so it’s a song for all of us. The most beautiful part is the final phrase: “We all learn to laugh again”.

Grade: 8,5

Opinion Timothy

I don’t think this is one of their best songs. The couplets are a bit boring, although the refrains sound very good.

Grade: 7,9

Add to personal playlist: No

 

Overall: 8

Tragedy+Time comes in tenth place out of nineteen in the ranking.
