"Rise Above It" is the tenth track on Switchfoot's eighth album, Vice Verses.

Lyrics

Another couple of kids with their heads on top
Just another stranger
Just another plot
Another track home where the city streets stop
Just another kid with another bored cop

Just another lemon into lemonade job
Just another rust and dust facade
Just another key stuck broken in the lock
Just another scarecrow choking on a cough
Oh come on!

It all feels so typical
I guess I’m looking for a miracle
Rise above it
Rise above it
I don’t care what they’re telling me
We could be what we want to be
Rise above it
Rise above it

Listen up loud, listen up, listen here
Just because you’re running doesn’t mean that you’re scared
Just because it’s law doesn’t mean it is fair
Never let another tell your soul what to fear

Here we go again give it one more try
Don’t believe the system’s on your side
Just another lover-turned-enemy fight
Just another blood and nicotine sky
Oh come on!
It all feels so typical
I guess I’m looking for a miracle
Rise above it
Rise above it

I get so sick of it
It feels so counterfeit
I rise above it
Rise above it

Hear our voices rise
Here our battle cry
We’ve been under the curse
With our arms raised high
Hear us sing tonight
Like the last night on earth

We will rise
Like the tide
Like dead men
Coming back to life
We are rising
Rising

Turn it up now, listen loud and clear
Just because you’re present doesn’t mean that you’re here
Oh come on!

It feels so typical
Guess I’m looking for a miracle
Rise above it
Rise above it
The curse is spoken
The system’s broken
Rise above it
Rise above it

Let’s rise above it
We can rise above it
