"Rise Up" as written by and Craig Edward/frisby Mabbitt....
Keep your eye focused this time, keep us in front of your sights,
I've waited long for this,
Now it's the time for bliss, I just hope we have the time.
I stand broken, please god hear my cries, he does every time.

How many times have you watched me fall just to smile,
I've been through thick and thin we've struggled through now we smile,
So we're here now just be ready, brace yourself cause were not leaving.

Keep your eye focused this time,
Keep us in front of your sights,
I've waited long for this, our time to shine,
I just hope we have the time.
I stand broken, please god hear my cries, he does every time.

Help us get out, help us get out, out into the open,
Help us grow, rise up rise up.
Help us grow, rise up rise up.
Help us grow, rise up rise up.
Help us grow, rise up rise up.

[Repeat x2]
I stand broken, please god hear my cries,
He does every time.
He does every time.

Keep your eye focused this time,
Keep us in front of your sights,
I've waited long for this, now it's the time for bliss,
I just hope we have the time.
I stand broken, please god hear my cries, he does every time.

    I love these lines. I keep picturing it from the POV of God or Jesus looking down at how sometimes people have to fail to succeed. Sorta like if you have a puppy and you laugh when they trip over their feet, but if they are in need you help them out.

    And in the end, He is always there to help, like a perfect parent figure.

    MemoryThis actually reminds me of my former 'best friend' and a very close friend.

    'How many times have you watched me fall just to smile'
    -Relates to a fight we had, all 3 plus another, and how I wan't to trust them but I know I can't. :/

    'Help us get out, help us get out, out into the open'
    -How I wan't to tell the former best friend how horrible someone in her life is, and I have she listerned but Idk.

    I could go on forever with these lyrics...
