"We Will Rise" as written by Michael Amott and Christopher Amott....
Tear down the walls
Wake up the world
Ignorance is not bliss
So fed up with second best
Our time is here and now

I am the enemy
I am the antidote
Watch me closely
I will stand up, now

We will rise (We will rise)
Rise above
We will rise (We will rise)
Rise

Stereotype fools
Playing the game
Nothing unique
They all look the same
In this sea of mediocrity
I can be anything
Anything I want to be

I am the enemy
I am the antidote
Watch me closely
I will stand up, now

We will rise (We will rise)
Rise above
We will rise (We will rise)
Rise

We will rise

We will rise (We will rise)
Rise above
We will rise (We will rise)
Rise

We will rise (We will rise)
Rise, rise above
We will rise (We will rise)
Rise

    General CommentYeah I love this song too. Although Anthems of Rebellion isn't as good as Wages of Sin. Anyway, I think

    "Stereotype Fools
    Playing the game
    Nothing unique
    They all look the same"

    means the crappy music that's been playing everywhere in the world. Basically everything from MTV. And they all look the same..lol (The rappers..the pop singers)

    General CommentWell i live in Virginia...I’m surrounded by rednecks, and believe me i get ALOT of shit for wearing Tripp pants and being gothic so when i hear the lines...

    "Stereotype Fools
    Playing the game
    Nothing unique
    They all look the same
    In this sea of mediocrity
    I can be anything
    Anything I want to be"

    ...they just speak to me; I think it’s basically saying "Fuck you, I’m not like you, your not like me get over it"

    General CommentI love the guitar solos in this song...fucking unbelievable how good Chris and Mike Amott are at the guitar...they are some badass motherfuckers...this song is basically about the rise of metal (at least I hope it is)
