"Still I Rise" as written by and Jonathan Donais Jason Bittner....
Stop searching the sky for answers
and look within
the greatest gift is the life we are given

This is the price you pay, throwing your whole life away

How can you know yourself
When your world is just a lie

Still I rise
From the ashes
From the ashes
Look inside, search for meaning
Truth can not survive
(Truth can not survive)

I feel the hate inside you, I watch it burn
You heard the warnings,
but you, you never learned

This is the price you pay, throwing your whole life away

Pretend to understand
You never even tried (this bit not 100% but sounds like it)

Still I rise
From the ashes
From the ashes
Look inside, search for meaning
Truth can not survive

Watch it burn
the hate inside you
No return, ignore the warning signs

Still I rise
From the ashes
From the ashes
Look inside, search for meaning
Truth can not survive

    General CommentThese are unbelievably bad...

    Correct lyrics (minus one bit I'm not 100% on)

    Stop searching the sky for answers
    and look within
    the greatest gift is the life we are given

    This is the price you pay, throwing your whole life away

    How can you know yourself
    When your world is just a lie

    Still I rise
    From the ashes
    From the ashes
    Look inside, search for meaning
    Truth can not survive
    (Truth can not survive)

    I feel the hate inside you, I watch it burn
    You heard the warnings,
    but you, you never learned

    This is the price you pay, throwing your whole life away

    Pretend to understand
    You never even tried (this bit not 100% but sounds like it)

    Still I rise
    From the ashes
    From the ashes
    Look inside, search for meaning
    Truth can not survive

    Watch it burn
    the hate inside you
    No return, ignore the warning signs

    Still I rise
    From the ashes
    From the ashes
    Look inside, search for meaning
    Truth can not survive


    There you go. Good tune though!

    General CommentIt's about getting up when you fall down methinks. Maybe about finding inner strength. "Stop searching the skys for answers..." is probably saying stop asking for help (the sky bit may be about God), and find the strength inside you.
    I'm suprised there arn't more comments, this is an awsome song

    General CommentI pretty much got the same thing Adzyman did. The Truth can not survive part seems a bit off, but who knows. Truth could be the religious version of the word, which just means *Insert Religion Here*'s views are 100% correct, all others are lies, regardless of the laws of nature or existence in general. So in that case, religious "truth" can not survive could be a possibility. If it's not that, it sounds like lying to yourself to try to push yourself further or something.
