Rise Against - Sudden Urge Lyrics


We are names and we are faces
Not listed in the pages
You’re searching line by line

The voices in the wire
The glass under your tires
The panic in your eyes
And when we start to lose control
And when we start to lose our minds
That’s when I close my eyes and feel

A sudden urge
To watch this whole town burn
Light up the whole damn sky
Like the Fourth of July
Like the Fourth of July

I am as patient as a volcano
A butterfly in a landmine field
I am the dandelion making guns go silent
Sticking out of every barrel cold as steel
In this fight you started
I’m a moving target
And I’m sick of running
But the pain keeps coming

Like a sudden urge
To watch this whole town burn
Light up the whole damn sky
Like the Fourth of July
Like the Fourth of July
Hey!

Searching for something worth saving
From this fire
Try to envision the glass half-full
Give me a reason to smother these flames now
Before they begin to grow
I can’t stop the sky from falling
All I hear are voices calling
Asking, «Have you come to heal us?»
Touch my shaking hand you’ll feel a sudden urge
To watch this whole town burn
Light up the whole damn sky
Like the Fourth of July
The Fourth of July
We are black inside
Scorching the earth like it’s the Fourth of July

If everything you knew
Was a goddamn lie
Would you up and explode
Like it’s the Fourth of July?
