Rise Against - Monarch Lyrics


I feel the same
No different than before
There was a time when what you thought of me once mattered
I put weight behind your words

Then something snapped
Deep down inside me
Tectonic shifts aligning
Soft image into focus
Snapped fingers break hypnosis
Light through the crack and then
Everything went black

I am not the person you remember from before
The one you patronized and stepped on, the one you hurt
And I have pulled the arrows, now my skin has become stone
No longer am I prisoner to your empty fucking words

I carried every single word you said
They stacked up high, they weighed me down
But underneath it all, I didn’t notice
I was growing strong somehow
Lean backward through an open window
Nothing left can save me now
I hear the cry of the approaching sirens
Right as I count down

Then something snapped
A lightbulb moment
Like sighting land from the ocean
Pure water in the desert
A thirst that can’t be measured
The first breath of a child
Released into the wild

I am not the person you remember from before
The one you patronized and stepped on, the one you hurt
And I have pulled the arrows, now my skin has become stone
No longer am I prisoner to your empty fucking words

Your pain is an open secret
It spills with every breath
And this game that you played is over now
And gone are the days I was helpless and afraid, yeah
Gone are the walls that kept me in

Yeah I, I’m not the person
That you remember from before

Yeah I, I’m not the person
That you remember from before
Yeah I, I’m not the person
That you remember from before
That you remember
That you remember
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
