"Again We Rise" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Store-bought attitude and spit
A sugar-coated piece of shit
An instant rebel, just add greed
Another useless commodity
Broken glass and a broken jaw
Lies are told in a southern drawl
Poor-house poverty's your shtick
The real thing would kill you quick

Rise, again we will rise

Blood and fire used to fill the night
Burnt and drowned by our very lives
You missed a sinking boat by years
Dollar signs, crocodile tears
Its over now and long has been
Those days are gone won't come again
Another name crossed off the list
The real thing would kill you quick

Rise, again we will rise

There's nothing for you to fight against
You're so unreal its evident
You'll never be one of our kind
This ain't yours, fuck you don't try

This bridge was burnt before you could cross
You reap the benefits of what's lost
Go home son, hang your costume up
A goddamn insult to the rest of us
A thousand-yard stare across the south
A full belly and a lying mouth
Momma's boy plays heretic
The real thing would kill you quick

Rise, again we will rise

There's nothing for you to fight against
You're so unreal its evident
You'll never be one of our kind
This ain't yours, fuck you don't try

Fuck you, don't even try
Fuck you, your time is nigh
Fuck you, I've had enough
Fuck you, your time is up

    General CommentI think this song is to all the fake fucks who see a sell out on TV and try to be like them.
    For all the people who think that they throw and a voice and a gold chain an there gangster.
    Throw on a LoG T-shirt and some jeans with a wrist band and chain and they think there a metal head.
    For the millions and millions of people who buy some cloths by a well known brand and act like every one els when there pices of shit. And us, the ones who are our self will "Rise" and be us, embrace who and what we are!

    General CommentWrong, so wrong. This song is about the South, the "real" south. Not the costume wearing KKK faggots, or the wanna be rednecks. Just the real south.

    General CommentI think it's basically about someone who spreads their opinion despite their blatant ignorance towards the subject. I'd pull some lyrics to point to Bush, but the dudes in the band have assured us that there is not a single political song on the entire new record.
    To me, it points towards contrived anti-society, and how someone who pretends to be a rebel and tries to break the mould eventually becomes as bad as the culture they were originally trying to distance themselves from.
    LoG owns.

    General CommentLove the start to this song its awsome to headbang too.
    I still think this song is still somewhat about Bush i mean lines like " this bridge was burnt before you could cross you reap the benefits of whats lost
    go home son, hang your costume up a goddamn insult to the rest of us a thousand-yard stare across the south a full belly and a lying mouth momma's boy plays heretic. " kinda point a finger at the worlds biggest fuck up.

    General Commentthis songs about all these "metal" bands that are out now a days that act bad ass and are all into the metal scene but are totally not metal. i mean, just because your music is metal doesn't make YOU metal, metal is an additude, a way of life if you will. this song is saying FUCK you to all these wannabe motherfuckers who are just in a metal band for the image, bad ass song, i love it. thats my 2 cents

    General CommentI can agree with burn on this one

    "go home son, hang your costume up
    a goddamn insult to the rest of us"

    This verse seems to be talking about bands like slipknot that are pitiful excuses for rock bands that wear the masks
    ill admit the masks look cool, but if you get a new mask every album, and the quality of your music goes down as well, you really need to ditch the masks and concentrate more on making your music

    but we all could be wrong, and there could be a lot more to this song then we realize, but so far everything makes sense

    General CommentI think this song is about people cashing in on the white-trash cliche, that's the impression I get right off the bat from the first verse.

    General CommentI'd agree with ZionsVillageIdiot , but Lamb Of God are actually down with Slipknot and have toured with them, probably with the phrase "To each his fucking own" on their minds.

    General CommentSo?
    Iron maiden are touring with Bullet for my valentine, what would you say bout that one?

    anyways, I agree with what both burnthepriest17 and xNo.Transitory said..

    "Store-bought attitude and spit"- all those wannabes go and buy clothes that will make them look cool.. and then make a band that attempts to be "oh so metal" but it's mostly for the money (Dollar signs)..
    I think it's making Randy mad cus as opposed to others, some people take metal seriously and make it the centre of their lives.. lamb of god worked their asses off for years to get to where they are, and some fucking poser bands think they can, in a second, get to the top and make money. wtf?
    so he's saying, people like that will never be a part of us.. you can say you're metal but it doesn't mean you are, or ever will be (you can repeat a lie a thousand times but it never becomes anymore true..).

    Don't you feel like the first verse kinda refers to Phil Anselmo?
