"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.

    General CommentI think these lyrics involve success and how they want God to watch over them and protect them and to guide them. This does make sense since they are, afterall, a Hardcore/Christian band.

    BTF is absolutely amazing.

    My InterpretationAwesome song but the lyrics could be written in a better format:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Keep your eye focused this time,
    Keep us in front of your sights.
    I've waited long for this,
    Now it's our 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,
    We're 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 (x4)

    I stand broken,
    Please God hear my cries.
    He does every time. (x2)

    Keep your eye focused this time,
    Keep us in front of your sights.
    I've waited long for this,
    Now it's our time for bliss,
    I just hope we have the time.

    I stand broken,
    Please God hear my cries.
    He does every time.
