Rise Against - Ready to Fall

Hold on slow down again from the top now and tell me everything
I know I've been gone for what seems like forever
But I'm here now waiting
To convince you that I'm not a ghost or a stranger
But closer than you think
She said, "Just go on to what you
Pretend it's your life but
Please don't die on me"

Wings wont take me
Heights don't phase me
So take a step
But don't look down take a step

Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall

Perpetual motion the image wont focus
A blur is all that's seen
But here in this moment like the eye of the storm
It all came clear to me
I found a shoulder to lean on
An infallible reason to live all by itself
I took one last look from the heights that I once loved
And then I ran like hell

Wings won't take me
Heights don't phase me
So take a step
But don't look down take a step

Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall

I count the times that I've been sorry
(I know, I know)
While my compassion slowly drowns
(I know, I know)
If there's a time these walls could guard you
(I know, I know)
Then let that time be right now

Now I'm standing on a rooftop
Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall (ready to fall)
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
I think I'm at the edge now but I could be wrong
I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall
Now I'm standing on a rooftop (ready to fall) [3x]
Now I'm standing on a rooftop ready to fall

"Ready to Fall" is the first single by the punk rock band Rise Against from their fourth studio album, The Sufferer & The Witness (2006). An acoustic version of this song was performed live on the CJZN Radio station in Victoria, British Columbia, on January 18, 2007, before a Billy Talent concert featuring Rise Against, Anti-Flag, and Moneen. On March 12, 2009, the song became a downloadable song in the video game, Guitar Hero World Tour. It is also featured in Tap Tap Revenge 3 on iPhone and iPod Touch as a downloadable double song pack with Audience of One. The song featured in 2009 action movie 12 Rounds. Music video Made in 2006, the video is about pollution and its effects on the environment. The video is 3 minutes and 51 seconds long, and cuts between shots of the band playing and shots of animals being saved or dying, if not already dead, from various environmental hazards caused by humans. At the end of the video, lead singer Tim McIlrath says, "Every action has a reaction. We've got one planet, one chance." As well as the version played on television, there was another, more graphic version created. This was never released officially but is available on certain websites. The video serves a testimony to veganism. Rise Against is an active supporter of PETA, an animal rights organisation, and the band members are all active vegetarians. The video was filmed at Brandywine Falls Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada. The song is most often performed last at Rise Against's live performances.
